Coaching & Development Plans

Lisa is undoubtedly some manner of sorceress when it comes to identifying and fixing the dissonance that can so easily creep between the story you thought you wanted to tell and the one that landed on the page.—Luke R. Mitchell

And now it all makes sense, thanks to a personal coach who helps you make sure the story in your head is actually making it onto the page. Whether you’re rescuing a stalled story or starting from scratch, we’ll begin with a coached orientation designed to ensure you’re building your story atop a solid framework. Now your writing process is free to emerge organically, with a clear sense of purpose and no chokepoints to hold you back.

You’ll get on-manuscript feedback on your pages for each touchpoint. You’ll also get support materials to ease you past trouble areas, plus a monthly newsletter filled with writing, productivity, and writing lifestyle advice tailored to the current stage of development of your manuscript. Choose how many touchpoints you’d like each month and whether you’d like to write forward each time or use Revise & Resubmit opportunities to strengthen your pages. Add phone or video consultations and weekly accountability checks for even more feedback.

Coaching & Development Plans are suitable for developing or writing your book. Prices start at $124 per month.

The Plot Accelerator

If your story isn’t built on a solid framework or if you don’t understand what sustains and drives it, it will struggle to lift off the launchpad—or it will tumble back to earth without ever reaching orbit. The fix: a Plot Accelerator.

I love how you’ve distilled all these approaches … into a practical guide. Your material takes it from theory to practice. Brilliant!—Scott Jarol

The Plot Accelerator is a one-on-one analysis of your story wrapped around a mini-course in classic story structure and theory. Use your Plot Accelerator as a blueprint before you write, a diagnostic tool to help rescue a stuck story, or the first step in a thorough edit.

The Accelerator begins with straightforward, supercharged tutorials on classic story structure and the techniques that underlie literature and storytelling. Study at your own pace, then move into analyzing and understanding your own story. We’ll dig in together with one-on-one feedback and coaching. Explore new ideas. Ask questions. Find out what works and why—so you’ll never find yourself neck-deep in an edit for a manuscript that wasn’t quite ready for lift-off.

What It Is:

A mini-developmental edit and analysis of your story wrapped around a storytelling course and supported by a personal story coach

What You Get:

Tutorials covering story structure and theory and the elements that drive plot; a guided analysis of your story; one-on-one feedback and dialogue about the foundations of your story; craft resources and writing tools; follow-up phone call or Skype

Who It’s For:

Authors seeking a cost-effective way to make sure their stories “work”; authors who want story editing but don’t have the budget or time for a developmental edit; authors who want the faster writing times that come from well-developed story foundations

How Much It Costs:

$399
