Sometimes when we’re stuck a total stranger has our answer. It’s not the most likely avenue to resolve our writing challenges, though.
The stranger would have to discover that we have a problem, and they’d have to know the solution (or at least a solution.)
If you describe your writing challenge to me, I have a rare ability to see and hear viscerally which gives me insights which are valuable even to a complete stranger.
That doesn’t scale, though. I can only work with a handful of coaching clients at a time. Also, I’m expensive.
