Raw | Fierce | Authentic | You
Where you develop the tools to shine
I offer several one-on-one writing coaching services to help you get to the finish line, whether it is getting started, finishing your first draft, polishing for publication, deciding your writing business plan, getting through writers block, or just gaining some inspiration.
Writing coaching can be helpful for the writer just wanting to get started and be accountable for finishing a first draft, or for the writer starting out their writing career. It can help you work through your blocks, set up positive habits, build confidence, and shape your story.
“Nicola Thompson has read my manuscript and gave me a very detailed and valuable feedback. Her suggestions on how to improve the plot, pacing and setting helped me to improve the manuscript and make it stronger. Thanks to Nicola my manuscript now has a clear focus and I feel that it’s ready to the young readers all over the world.”
~Flavia Labre, author of The Eighth Chamber
I offer both hourly sessions as well as monthly packages that can be adjusted to fit your individual needs to help you to find and ignite your authentic story.
Included in our monthly packages is developmental editing, to help you create impactful novels and stories to get you that much closer to success. Each hourly session is done via Skype, or, depending on where in the world you live, in person.
“She has a very intuitive sense about the way she hears the voice of her clients through the descriptions of the work they need written out. When proofreading, she is able to shape ideas pointedly and offer feedback in a way that even a novice can understand. She is reliable, fast and efficient with her work. A gem to anyone who wants something as simple as a proofread but as complicated as a full curriculum for a class, which she has written for me as well.”
~Jordan Langen, Business owner, teacher, Tarot reader
For those who don’t feel that writing is their strong suit, I offer assistance for those essays, reports, or even getting to grips with the complexity of written language. From talking about the structure of your paper to the syntax of your sentences, I can help you find your authentic writing voice and communicate your message affectively to get you through your class, your presentation, or that business report.
I offer hourly charges or monthly bundles to best suit your needs, with both email and Skype support.
“I was fortunate enough to have Nicola help me through the process of writing while I was attending Whatcom Community College. I have struggled with writing my entire life and I feel certain that my ability to express myself through writing was helped along immensely by her guidance!”
~Sabrina Anne, former WCC student
