So, today Quita and I are venturing on Day #2 of the NaNoWriMo madness. Yesterday, we both had a good writing day--we passed our daily goals even. However, today we returned to the day jobs, and our writing goals are looking...well, bleak. That's why YA Highway's Road Trip Wednesday is perfect for us right now. They want to know:
What kind of writing coach do you need? When you have to coach friends, what kind of coach are you?
Hmm, well, we definitely wouldn't want this type of coach:
You know, the type of person that's going to bark orders at you and grill you for not meeting your goals. But we also don't want this type of coach:
All of us probably know this guy. The type that's going to put a Band Aid on everything and never call you out on your crap.
Basically, we just need a sounding board. Someone we can vent to when times seem rough. The kind that will give us both a pat on the back or a reality check when we ask for it.
And that's the type of coaches we are. If you just want to blow off steam, so be it. But when you tell us what kind of help/motivation you need, we'll be there for you like Chandler was there for Joey (okay, nineties sitcom reference. My creativity dwindles during this time of the day).
What about you all? What are your coaching needs?
