WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO HAVE A COACH/ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER WHEN WRITING?

Listen, I am speaking from experience. I tried to do several writing projects on my own. Chile, it never worked out for me.


The ONLY time I actually completed writing assignments on my own is when I was in college. I knew that I HAD to do it, because I don’t do anything less than A’s in my writing classes.

But honey, let me tell you. When I graduated and didn’t have a professor as someone who would hold me accountable, I FELL OFF! Big time!


Let’s face it, when you are in the middle of everyday life and you have a deadline looming over you, it can be difficult to meet your writing goals. Even the best writers have trouble putting their thoughts down on paper sometimes. This is why a writing "accountability partner" can be highly beneficial.

An accountability partner is a role that can be played by a fellow writer or a writing coach like myself with whom you have regular contact. Above all, this person should be someone who has a clear understanding of your short and long-term writing goals.


For me, having an accountability partner means that I have someone who is a built-in motivator to get my work done. Deadlines can be a pain, but having someone behind me cheering me on and holding me responsible for getting my work done certainly helps! Accountability partners can be found in different places, whether they are a colleague, an editor - even your readers or fanbase.


Another popular option is to hire a writing coach. Their main focus is to be a mentor and source of support for you along your writing journey. One reason a writing coach can be a successful tool in helping you meet your goals is they are someone you can bounce ideas off of. You can discuss your progress and your pitfalls, and even set time frames to work towards short and long-term goals. If deadlines aren't enough of a motivation to keep you on track, paying a writing coach for help will likely get the job done!


I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be able to offer this service, but for now, I am accepting coaching clients. So, if you need an accountability partner, hit me up.
