The Brave Revision Map uses an exploratory process to help you go a layer deeper with your characters and make new discoveries about your story that help you see its full potential.
When you take the time to get to know your story, and connect even more deeply than you can imagine, you gain clarity and perspective on what is not currently on the page for your readers and you can't wait to elevate your writing so they can fall in love with it too.
Sometimes you don't realize what you're doing really well until someone you trust points it out. And once you know what you're doing well, you can see where you can improve.
I help you:
Collaborative, Compassionate and Brave
My mission is to help writers step into their power as authors by seeing their writing clearly.
I join you on the writer's journey of exploring this story you're creating. I reflect it back to you so you can see it. I don't impose my opinion from a position of judgement. I help you to make decisions about your book based on bravery and your own intuition rather than fear.
Why is this important to you?
I know from personal experience what it feels like to be in the grip of second-guessing. And I know the joy of overcoming it.
How do you do this?
The magic of asking the right questions.
What qualifies you to do this?
I'm an Author Accelerator certified book coach and a published author of literary criticism. I have a first class degree and doctorate in English Literature from Oxford, and I've taught literary studies at many Universities.
My time tutoring at Oxford University, one to one, guides my exploratory approach to book coaching.
I engage in continuous professional development so that I can best serve you and your writing.
As a fellow writer I have empathy for your struggles and admiration for your bravery and persistence. And I know that for some of us, writing doesn't happen in a straight line, or through a linear process. It has to get messy.
I'd love to hear about your writing. My office hour is free, so if you're curious or want to chat over a particular challenge, get in touch.
Let's start the conversation
"Before beginning to work with George I found that a lack of direction drained my inspiration.
Without feedback on what I’d already written, I found it difficult to continue with the story.
I felt a little nervous about receiving feedback on work that I’d already done (what new writer doesn’t!?)
Now we’ve begun working together I’m itching to get my book finished! I have a lot of work ahead, but now I know that I’m heading in the right direction, and have fresh inclusions to improve the work already done I’m desperate to get it done!
I've unlocked ideas I didn't even know I had.
Being given direction, confidence and inspiration in a friendly, relaxed and easy manner is priceless. "
"I have been writing now for two years and having been turned down repeatedly by agents I felt that I should seek expert help rather than relying on family and friends. It was quite a leap of faith to entrust a stranger with something so personal that had consumed so much of my time, but George was hugely empathetic and her advice was very empowering. Can't recommend George highly enough [...] her overview of not only my current novel but the next one, has changed everything for me. "
Because I know that you may want to share your next draft with me or submit new writing to me as you revise, I'm including a voucher towards the cost of those services.
Because I want you to have the support you need to revise your next draft with confidence, I'm also including unlimited email access to me for a full month after our session, so that you can ask for clarification, help exploring a possibility, or reassurance on anything to do with your work in progress.
You'll be taken through to a page where you can tell me more about your writing, then I'll be in touch via email so we can schedule a free call or just get started!
I know that sharing your writing can feel vulnerable. I know that this can feel like a big step. And I know that the sooner you get this help, the sooner you're going to be able to unlock the full potential of your story. The journey can be more enjoyable, less lonely, and much faster with help.
