You can get started by trying a week of coaching. If you like the coaching and notice benefits and results, it’s recommended you take on a coaching program to help you get your writing project to the finish line. More about fees and coaching programs below.
Here’s what you’ll get each week
A one-hour coaching session with Milli. Milli will use questions and insights to draw out your deepest writing issues. She listens for the clues that will guide her to help you. Here’s how one client described a coaching session with Milli:
To say I enjoyed our first session is an understatement. It was enthralling, motivating and tender, the ultimate in collaboration and respect. I not only felt heard and acknowledged, but more importantly understood.
Increased productivity. Write heaps more! If you’re currently feeling very unproductive (maybe not writing anything at all) we will quickly change that dynamic. If you commit to Milli’s program, she can help you write thousands of words for your book or other writing project.
Assignments designed for your needs. Whether you’re trying to write a novel or recapture your passion for writing, Milli will cater especially to your situation. Each assignment will either zero in on where you’re trying to go with an existing piece of writing, or focus on a way to revive the fun. Here’s one client’s reaction to receiving her latest assignment:
I’m having a blast! My goal was to finish my assignment yesterday but I wrote for over two hours and I’m still only on part 2. I’ve learned so much from working with this character. Also, I had no problems with the writing—I was too focused on what my character was saying. I’m really excited about being a happy writer!
Encouraging feedback for your completed assignments. The goal at Writer’s Muse is for you to enjoy your creativity. When you enjoy it, so does Milli. Here’s what one client said about her first feedback:
Milli, When I got your email I knew it contained your reaction about the ending of my story. I took a deep breath and just started reading. I had no idea what you were going to say. All I can say is wow! I am moved and so touched by what you wrote. I was on the verge of happy tears that someone would acknowledge my writing as you have. I’m totally psyched about this feedback and I’m looking forward to seeing where things will go from here.
Gentle and constructive critique if you need it. Critiques are a dime a dozen and everyone wants to tell you how you should have written your story. What you’ll get instead will be constructive guidance on how to allow your own imagination and writing skills to improve any areas that need improving. Milli also uses her intuition to put herself in the shoes of the reader and give you feedback based on what your readers will notice and experience.
Email & text message support. If you need help getting started with your assignment, or if you get stuck part-way through, you can email Milli for help. In fact, you’re expected to get help if you get stuck. You’ll also get regular text message follow-ups to help you finish your assignments (accountability!) and these will be tailored to your needs and preferences.
Creative help and emotional support whenever you need it. The clients who do the best here are not shy about reaching out to Milli in between coaching sessions. Milli will reply to your texts or emails promptly and offer you the right help. If warranted, this would include a same-day phone call to unknot your issues in person. There’s no limit on the amount of emails, texts and phone calls you can have with Milli during your coaching program.

Coaching Fees & Programs
If you follow my program for 3 months—and, by the way, I keep it simple and easy—I can help you write 30,000 words or more. (30,000 words is pegged low, based on you not having to push yourself and allowing for Life Happens stuff. We can achieve much more if you’re willing.) If you’re serious about getting a book finished, every week for 3 months is your best deal.

* This is the only program that’s not continuous coaching. It’s one week on, one week off, one week on, one week off. If you choose this program please be aware that writers have told me they fall off the wagon and don’t do much writing during the off weeks. I offer this program for those who can’t afford continuous coaching. Momentum can make a huge difference to your writing life.
