"Before I started working with writing coaching with Beth Barany, I could not get a writing project finished. I had several half-written articles all over my desktop.

But after working with Beth for over a year and a half, I am so much more focused and productive. With her insightful reflections and guidance I have discovered and developed a writing process that works for me. I have also let go of mental blocks and beliefs that kept me from expressing and publishing my ideas. In working with Beth I found my voice."
--Jeri Lawson, Blogger

> Creativity Coaching

Are you ready to take your writing to the next level?

Are you ready to:

Increase your creative flow?
Make time for writing?
Develop more regular habits?
Discover and strengthen your motivation ?
Achieve your writing goals?
Improved clarity and focus?

Beth's coaching practice involves a holistic process that focuses on your creative goals and process.

Be it through email correspondence, on the phone or face-to-face, Beth acts as a guide to help you uncover your hidden diamond within. Sometimes that requires her to ask difficult questions and have you think about them in an entirely new way, or think about them for the first time. Sometimes she points out a different way of framing the situation to lead you to try on a different perspective. She helps you get to where you want to go, though often, suprisingly, the destination is different and better than ever imagined.

In coaching, she first asks a lot of questions to find out what the client wants to do, why, and what has been in the way of her goal in the past. Then in co-creation with her client, they come up with strategies to accomplish her goals. With the coaching hat on, she listens closely to her needs, her difficulties, and her motivations, and often ask more questions than she answers. That's because the client will know what will work better for her success than Beth does. What Beth does is provide a safe and focused space for her client to find those answers. The coaching relationship is a catalyst for change and progress. Additionally, Beth offers scaffolding to help her client to her next steps by suggesting specific tools and techniques for the craft of writing and for the writer's mindset. Beth also assists with creative ideas for scheduling and for ways to help her client be accountable to herself.

With the consulting hat on, Beth offers expert advice and industry information about the publishing world, such as how to find agents and editors, and how to submit to them. She subscribe to an online database, Publishers Marketplace, and will share market research with her client, as it relates to her project.

Contact Beth to sign up for individual coaching sessions. She usually works with clients for an initial three-month commitment. The best way to know if creativity coaching is right for you is to contact Beth for a 30-minute consultation.

If you prefer the group approach, attend any of Beth's classes. For the next class, check here for the details.

From a happy client:

"Beth's Group Coaching program helped me to go beyond mere good action and dialog. I dig much deeper into the character interactions and emotions, make them real, make them grab the reader. I put a sharper microscope on character motivations. I'm more daring with relationships and improved the voice to fit the story." -- Richard Burns, Author,
