This week the coaches answer the question: How important are character names?
How important is naming your character? Depends on who you ask! Each Dear Book Coach has a different take on character names. Not so important, somewhat important and don’t-even-get-me-started important. You’ll get tips on where to find great names, how to avoid one common pitfall and how to integrate your characters’ personality in a way that only you know. It’s all in a name – or is it?
This week the coaches answer the question: What should I look for in a critique group?
The three coaches give you advice on how to find one, when to leave one and what to expect from a critique group. It’s important to have support in your writing. Critique groups can be that, but you should know a few things when looking for one.
This week the coaches answer the question: How do I set boundaries around my writing?
In this episode of Dear Book Coach, we talk about boundaries. You’ll get some practical advice as well as plenty of empathy. We offer tools to set boundaries, an exercise to connect the body to the boundaries and a boundary manifesto.
