Congratulations! It's time to revise.

But now you have a problem.

You're too close to your writing. You can't see the big picture. 

You need a Brave Revision Map.

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.

Fall in Love with Your Book Again

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.

Lean Into Your Strengths

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.

What you're getting with the Brave Revision Map

This no ordinary manuscript critique.

I help you:

  • Expand your understanding of your own potential without getting overwhelmed. 

You get:

  • My eyes on  your work in progress so that I can join you in exploring the characters, themes, and shape of your story, as well as guide you to perceive your strengths and weaknesses.
  • A Deep Dive session with me, where we explore your story and experience insights and revelations that will give you clarity about your next steps. 
  • A Brave Revision Map where we collaborate on recording the epiphanies and insights we encountered so that you can move ahead with focus.

Let's get our heads together

My Approach to Working With Writers

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. "
