Checking In

Posted by Sherry on March 29, 2016 in Uncategorized |

We’ve been pursuing our writing goals, our writing dreams, for three months now, and it’s time for a check-in. What goals did you set for yourself at the beginning of January? How close are you to achieving them? What is working for you? What are you struggling with? Until now, we’ve been looking at things […]

Let it go

Posted by Sherry on March 22, 2016 in Uncategorized |

“It was a bad writing day yesterday. Today isn’t going to be any better.” “You didn’t write yesterday. Don’t bother writing today.” If I were a betting person, I’d wager you’ve thought those above statements plenty of times before. They are two of the favourite things our Inner Saboteur likes to say to us. The […]

Creating Deadlines that Matter

Posted by Sherry on March 1, 2016 in Uncategorized |

Unless you’re one of the lucky ones with a publishing contract, or in a writing course with submission deadlines that if missed will cost you money, it can be difficult to set and stick to deadlines. Why? Because we don’t really have anything really at stake. Perhaps a pitch session at a conference/convention you’re attending […]

Putting Yourself First

Posted by Sherry on February 16, 2016 in Uncategorized |

  In Martha Stout’s book “The Sociopath Next Door“, she opens up her introduction with the following: “Imagine–if you can–not having a conscience, none at all, no feelings of guilt or remorse no matter what you do, no limiting sense of concern for the well-being of strangers, friends, or even family members.” I remember reading […]

Just Do It!

Posted by Sherry on February 2, 2016 in Uncategorized |

We’ve all had times like these, where we talk with our friends about how we can’t find the time to write, and we just want to write but it’s so hard, and we hate our jobs because we want to write, but we never actually do any writing. The same happens when it comes to […]

The Inevitability of Change

Posted by Sherry on January 26, 2016 in Uncategorized |

One of the first principles of coaching is that change is inevitable. Change can be painful, it can be challenging, and it can be refreshing. Without change, there can be no growth. Often we fear the word change, because it suggests the unknown. Far too often we would rather stay with what is familiar, than […]

Until you try, you’ll never know

Posted by Sherry on January 19, 2016 in Uncategorized |

  The other day I was telling a friend that the soundtrack to the musical “Wicked” was the soundtrack to my life. It may or may not be a bit of an exaggeration, but two lines in particular resonate the most with me: “I’m through accepting limits, ’cause someone says they’re so. Some things I […]

Commitment-phobic?

Posted by Sherry on January 12, 2016 in Uncategorized |

At the end of each coaching session, clients are asked to come up with action steps that will help them accomplish the goals they set during the session. After the action steps have been stated, the client is asked to rate on a scale of 1 to 10, how committed they are to carrying through […]

Make it so!

Posted by Sherry on January 5, 2016 in Uncategorized |

Happy New Year! Join me on a goal-achieving adventure this year! Believe it or not, I’m not big on new year’s resolutions. Why? They tend to be impossibly big, vague, and requiring a drastic change with little to no preparation before-hand. That doesn’t mean I don’t make any plans or goals for the new year, […]

Ending the Overwhelm

Posted by Sherry on June 6, 2014 in Uncategorized |

The instantaneous consumerism of the internet  is overloading authors with pressure to be more and more prolific. It is no longer considered prolific to be publishing a book a year. The rapidly changing publishing industry is creating havoc. Traditionally published authors aren’t certain they’ll have a future in it, and indie authors are scrambling to produce […]
