1:1 with Julie
Julie, writing

You know you’re a writer.

You know you have something to give to the world…

But you aren’t getting as far as you’d like, as quickly as you want.

It’s hard to write and motivate yourself to do the work.

Perhaps you need a boss.


Until now, I’ve only offered occasional coaching inside the Superstars group.

Now, I’ve created the option of a committed coaching relationship that will get you closer to your goals, faster than you ever thought possible. 

I only work with a handful of people at a time. Those writers are ready to move forward with their ambitions.

I’m talking about people who are squirming in their seats right now, because they know they’re better than this, but haven’t figured out how to reach their potential.

If that sounds like you, apply now to find out if we’re a good fit.


It depends a bit on what you want to achieve, but it generally involves

  •  1:1 calls
  • Deep questions (and  awkward silences)
  • Access to a private messaging channel with Julie for questions between calls
  • Clarity around your next steps
  • Accountability to keep moving forward

It also creates a new commitment to your work, and the freedom to be who you really are, inside.

The Deal

If we decide to work together, I’ll commit to working with you for three months and you’ll commit to taking action.

Simple, right? (But not so easy, on your own.)

Ways We Might Work Together

  • If you’re working on a creative project like a novel or short stories, our time together may involve structural or creative planning, feedback, and accountability.
  • If you’re focused on building a satisfying writing practice, we may work on mindset and habits.
  • If you are working on revisions, we can formulate a plan, examine your story structure, and keep you on track as you work through your revisions.
  • If you’re working on reaching your audience we’ll formulate a strategy and next steps, as well as working on the words you use to do that.

If you just like my approach to life and need to talk about all this, we can do that too. (Sometimes this is what creates the freedom for seemingly-unrelated breakthroughs in your work.)

Note: coaching is not the same as editing. 

It’s better.

Coaching helps you develop the skills you need to be the best writer you can be, and the confidence to seek out skilled professionals to help you develop further. 

Are We Getting Hitched, For Life?

Not at all!

At the end of our three months we’ll assess what you need next. My belief is that you’ll have made significant progress from where you are today.

“What you need next” might be a break.

“What you need next”’ might be another three months of coaching (but frankly, I’ll need to be convinced it’s a good idea for us to continue. I won’t waste your time or my own.)

I usually won’t work with people on the same project for more than 12 months, because by that time you should be ready for the next challenge.

This is not for everyone.

In fact, this is not for most people.

It’s for a handful of people who are ready impatient to get going, and ready to make progress, fast.

If that’s you

fill out the application now

If it seems like we’re a good fit, I’ll contact you to set up a chat to talk about how we can best work together.

Keep writing,
