Got a half-finished book in your drawer? What? You have three book ideas but haven’t written a page? You may need a combination writing coach, cheerleader, accountability partner, editor, and publishing guide. Remember what Steve Jobs said, when he was about to ship the first, flawed Macintosh? “Real artists ship.” If you need help telling a story, whether a cost-free chat, a consulting session, a coach, or a co-writer, drop me a line. I live for this stuff.
Ask about the 90-day Project Accelerator, an upfront planning session to set your intentions and process, followed by a weekly coaching session to review your work and keep you on track toward completion of your creative project.
Here are a few testimonials from current and recent clients:
“Brian is a brilliant writing coach. He is inspiring, knowledgeable, and fun to work with. I actually enjoy the ways Brian holds me accountable. He cares about the completion of my creative project, and is willing to dish out tough love when I need it; but he also cares about me as a person, and encourages me to find work/life/creativity balance. As a result, my writing comes from a joyful place, instead of one filled with heavy obligation. I’m looking forward to writing another testimonial for Brian some day—in the acknowledgements page of the book I am writing.” – Katie Mae S., US
“I had a strong calling to explore an important recent chapter in my life through writing and I called on Brian to help guide me through the process. Through a series of coaching sessions and participation in his weekly writers group, I was able to give voice to experiences and emotions I was holding deep within. Brian is an empathetic and skilled coach and I recommend him to anyone wanting to heal through the art of creative expression.” – Chojin K., The Netherlands
“Writing, good writing anyway, requires a lot of the author. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you’re facing an open page or blank laptop screen. It’s easy to get lost in the weeds of that story you thought you knew when you started. Asking for help means sharing the precious ideas you’ve nurtured and developed, it can leave you feeling vulnerable and exposed. It’s critical that you work with someone who will respect what you are offering while gently pushing you to keep going. It helps tremendously if they have written themselves. I’ve had the good fortune to have worked with Brian for several years and he has been; a great sounding board, a helpful guide, and always fun to work with.” Bill O, US
“Brian is helping me start up my blog. It is so amazing to have him holding my hand in this new adventure. I couldn’t wish for anyone better in coaching and guiding me through this process!” Caroline O., Thailand/ The Netherlands

Writers of Koh Phangan
If you are on Koh Phangan or plan to visit, I founded a writing group Writers of Koh Phangan, which holds free events every Tuesday night at Orion’s gorgeous waterfront Beach Shala. We do writing exercises, share our work, meet new and old friends, and have a great time advancing our craft for two hours. The events start at 7pm, with everyone invited to come early for free coaching, a healthy vegan meal, Sunset Yoga, or just an hour of solo writing. Check out our Facebook group for details and watch for news of our monthly Phangan Slam spoken word events at Green Gallery.
