Why I Love Coaching

I love coaching because of the close collaboration that is involved when coaching writers as I support them throughout their journey. Providing support for writers brings me personal and professional fulfillment and joy. While I enjoy many parts of the writing process, I particularly enjoy the brainstorming and final editing and formatting of the writing process. Brainstorming is such a generative and high excitement activity for me personally, and I love to bring that excitement to others. The close attention to detail required in the editing process is a nice, solitary end to a long project.
