FUNKY BOOK PLANNING FOR FEMINISTASA one-off, two hour session to rock your idea and get you ready to write!
97% of books that are started are never completed.
And because I’m on a mission to get more women’s books written, published and out there changing the world, I want to do something about it.
As an author, editor and writing coach, I believe that not thinking things clearly out before starting writing is a major cause of this failure to finish.
Planning may not have a sexy rep, but holding your book in your hands is hot as hell and I believe preparation is one of the key things that can make you one of the 3% who get to type ‘The End.’
In my view then, planning our books is a feminist act.
It prepares us for the road ahead.
It makes us more confident, more resolute, more comfortable as we write because we actually know where the fuck we’re going.
This makes it more likely we’ll get our literary dreams – especially in a world where women writers are less likely to get published anyway.
I never leave home without red lipstick … a book plan is the thing you should never set off on your writing journey without.
Hillary and all good activists plan the shit out of their campaigns. We feminista authors need to be the same.
Are you wondering if your book idea is any good?
Are you not sure how the heck you should structure your project?
Have you got Post-It notes and scribbles everywhere, but you don’t know where to start?
Would you love someone to bring clarity to the crazy, so you can move forward with your writing?
SPEND TWO HOURS IN A SPECIAL WRITING COACHING SESSION WITH ME AND WE’LL BRAINSTORM YOUR BOOK IDEA AND MAKE SURE IT’S IN FIGHTING SHAPE AND WE’LL GET YOUR PROJECT PLANNED OUT, WHETHER THAT’S A NOVEL, MEMOIR OR NON-FICTION BOOK THAT’S GOING TO MAKE YOU A THOUGHT LEADER.
NO MORE WONDERING IF YOUR BOOK IDEA IS GOOD ENOUGH.
NO MORE CONFUSION OVER WHERE YOUR WRITING PROJECT IS HEADING.
NO MORE WRESTLING WITH PIECES OF PAPER AND TRYING TO MAKE SENSE OF IT ALL BY YOURSELF.
NO MORE PARALYSIS WHEN YOU SIT DOWN TO WRITE BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT COMES NEXT.
NO MORE WASTING TIME WRITING MATERIAL YOU DON’T NEED IN TIME YOU DON’T HAVE.
NO MORE GIVING UP PART-WAY THROUGH BECAUSE YOU’VE (LITERALLY) LOST THE PLOT.
NO MORE GIVING UP ON YOUR WRITING DREAMS.

Before working with Sharon, I could easily see how "writing a book" could just stay on someone's to-do list for years and years.
I now have a writing practice that is tailored to me and that I am excited about. Sharon's writing prompt ideas and help with the structure of my book were brilliant (THANK YOU!!). I had no idea how to even go about organizing it, but she was able to swoop in and give me direction on how to get started right away.
Sharon is very open, easy to talk to, encouraging and supportive. It was so refreshing. I felt there was no judgement at all about where I currently was or was not in the process.
I’M SHARON ZINK, PH.D., A FEMINIST WRITING COACH FOR WOMEN WITH BIG THINGS TO SAY.
I’M ON A MISSION TO GET MORE WOMEN’S BOOKS WRITTEN, PUBLISHED AND OUT THERE CHANGING THE WORLD.
I’ve been working as a writer my entire life (I was named as Young Poet of the Year and Writers Inc. Writer of the Year and my first novel, Welcome to Sharonville, was longlisted for The Guardian First Book Award and is currently being pitched as a TV series), so I know a thing or two about how to get this word shiz done.
On top of that, I’ve got a Ph.D. in English (I studied at London and Cambridge and my doctorate was supervised by the famed feminist, Professor Lisa Jardine) and, since leaving academia, I’ve worked as an editor with literally hundreds of writers, some of which are now bestselling authors (complete with billboards at train stations!) and others have got multi-book deals with major houses. A few have even gone on to successfully self-publish their work and become big hits on Amazon.
I’m also a Martha Beck-trained life coach, so I know how to really listen and make sure your book plan represents your finest ideas and deepest vision.
