Want your stories to come to life on the page? Want your readers to see, taste, feel, smell, and hear your memories? Want your writing to feel fresh and new? Then, I have just the answer for you. The easiest way to improve your writing tenfold rests in using detail and description. No problem, you say. I’ll just throw in a few extra adjectives and adverbs. Well, that’s one way, but it’s not the best way to make your stories more vivid. Detail and description takes advantage of all our senses, not just sight, using specific words, and incorporating metaphor and simile while avoiding cliché. It may sound daunting, but when you know how to do it, you add another dimension to your writing and give your readers a complete experience. Join me for my next coaching program, Writing Detail and Description, which begins Tuesday, September 6th with a get-acquainted call for all participants. Writing Detail and Description combines ten or more instructional videos you access online at your convenience, including:

  • Writer’s Block
  • A Bit of Inspiration
  • Not Just Adjectives and Adverbs
  • Specificity
  • Sensory Detail
  • Cliché
  • Scent and Memory
  • Historical Context
  • Simile and Metaphor
  • Writing with Photographs
  • Perfectionism

In addition to the videos, you receive:

  • exclusive access to an online community where you can post your stories, request feedback, ask questions, respond to fellow participants’ stories and comments
  • group coaching calls
  • individual coaching
  • outlines, worksheets, handouts, and other written materials to complement the training modules
  • random notes of encouragement and writing tips to keep you on track
  • on-demand access to training modules to review at your leisure for six full months
  • incentives to those who participate fully in the program
  • and much, much more

You may be thinking: Wow, a program that includes this much must cost a fortune! It should, but it doesn’t. I want as many people to participate as possible, so I’ve deliberately kept the price down. If you sign up for the program before September 1st, you can be a part of Writing Detail and Description for just $129. After September 1st the price goes up to $149. Plus, Writing Detail and Description comes with a money-back guarantee. Go through the first two modules, do the work recommended, and if you find the program doesn’t meet your needs, just let me know, and I’ll refund your payment in full. No questions asked. If you’ve previously participated in any Writing Your Life coaching programs—Finish My Book in 90 Days, Get Started-Write My Story, Writing People and Places, Edit Like an Expert, Electronic Editing—you may be eligible for a special discount. Contact me at patricia@writingyourlife.org to find out and possibly receive a promotional code to obtain the reduced price.
