What a difference between the writer I was, and the writer I am since working with Donna! I came to Donna in the early stages of my project. I had an idea of where I wanted to go, but on my own, I was only circling the block. Her coaching know-how set me on course to turn the story in my head into actual chapters of my draft.
Donna is the real deal. She guides with wisdom, warmth, encouragement, and enthusiasm, and it’s a total delight to have her in your corner, cheering you on. And besides all this, she maintains high expectations for her writers. A pivotal moment was when she spoke frankly to me about the unworkability of my writing practice, which was irregular at the time. Because she did not back down from calling out problems when she saw them, I knew that she was not just humoring me as a novice writer, and that I could trust her feedback, both the praise and the course-corrections. Thank you, Donna, for fast-tracking me toward the skills I needed to start meeting my own expectations as a writer. Who knows how long that would have taken without you!
When I first started working with Donna, I had queried my novel and was told by several agents that it wasn’t compelling enough. I had no idea how to fix this. Donna not only showed me how to make the novel vastly better, but I’ve been able to use what she taught me on subsequent books. Working with Donna improved my confidence and my skills, and she made me a better writer.
Before I started working with Donna, I was completely paralyzed in my dissertation writing process. My previous experience as a professional writer only made my paralysis that much more frustrating and demoralizing, as being a writer was central to my sense of self, my personal and professional identity. How lucky I was to find Donna’s website! I ended up working with her throughout my dissertation process, and her support made it possible for me to produce a dissertation that was both true to my vision and got me to graduation in a timely manner. In working with her, I realized that I needed to learn new skills as a writer in order to successfully complete a writing project as complex as a dissertation; as a result, I grew as a writer through my work with her. I have recommended Donna to numerous friends and colleagues and would absolutely recommend her to anyone in need of support in undertaking a complex and ambitious writing project.
