For fiction writers who want to create their stories in the flow

An assessment for creative writers.

By a creativity coach for writers, teacher, and award-winning novelist.


When we vision what is possible, we help make it so.

I help writers who feel stalled in writing their books, want support, and sense now is the time to take care of their writer dreams.

“Beth has a way of evoking motivation and inspiration out of me, by just being, listening and encouraging in a subtle way which is perfect for me. I think she understands what I need as a writer. I find myself working harder and accomplishing much more in such a short amount of time, my story is pushing right out of me. She is one of my allies.” -- Karen Lodrick, San Francisco, CA

My Writing Process Assessment sessions are for you if:

  • You yearn for a creative process tailored specifically for you, so that you can get writing.
  • You've tried lots of other people's tools and techniques but nothing's working.

  • You know that success is first an inner experience that gets manifested outward, but something feels out of alignment and you don't know what.

How do these 1-1 sessions work?

In our session, I help you clarify your goals or intentions, help you uncover what's stopping you, and help you gain clarity on how to move forward.

Through conversation, deep listening, and using my over 20 years of experience working with creative writers, I can assess your writing process, support you with mindset tools, and guide your through experiencing the change you want.

As someone who has studied systems constellations, systems design, and NLP (neurolinguistic programming), and is a student of many different self-knowledge systems (tarot, numerology, astrology, Destiny Cards, Human Design, Gene Keys, and others), I recognize that each individual has their own map of reality.

I've been a student of my own creative process for decades, overcoming many hurdles to now having published 17 of my own books, and having helped hundreds of writers complete their books.

In my over 20 years of experience of helping writers, I notice they usually stall or stop their writing for one or more of these reasons:

  • They have unrealistic expectations of what it means to be a writer and are super hard on themselves for not performing under those standards
  • They feel inadequate to their grand vision of their story
  • They're not sure if what they've written is any good, so why continue?
  • They don't have a writing process that works for them and don't know how to find it

Maybe you recognize yourself in one of these places... I'm sure there's more, as each of you are unique, and have your own set of strengths and weaknesses.

Know this... things can change for the better, and the hard stuff is real.

Firstly, have compassion for yourself.

Secondly, know that you are not alone.

And thirdly, if you'd like support and guidance, reach out for help.

That may be me or another person.

Before my NLP coaching session with Beth, the revision process was overwhelming, stressful, and scary. I had trouble even opening my book to re-read it, much less edit it. But after working with Beth, my outlook completely changed for the better. In just one session, Beth helped me develop a plan for revising that made the process seem exciting and fun. The very next day after our NLP session, I got to work on the revision that I'd been putting off for so long. And not only did I revise the early chapters--I also had fun doing it! I suddenly found ideas that had been buried before under all the anxiety. I am so grateful to Beth for helping me see my revision in a new light. With her help, I feel like I've not only discovered the potential joys of revising, but I've also learned skills that will help me long into the future of my writing career.
