NEW WRITER SURVEY

*NOTE: If you are coming into weekly book coaching after having gone through Blueprint for a Book or the Story Genius program, you don't need to fill out this Q&A.

Which level are you interested in? *
Where are you in the book-writing process? *
Where to start the story? What the story is really about? Length – too long, too short? What your protagonist wants? Multiple points of view? Structure? Anything having to do with marketing, pitching, querying? Holding yourself accountable? Finding time to write? Doubting whether it's any good?
What we mean by this is, what is your book trying to say about life or the world? Or what is the main argument? What is your protagonist going to learn through the book, or what do you hope your readers will take away from it?
Try to write the words that will appear on the book jacket when your book is in print— entice the reader by explaining what the book is about, but also get at why the reader might care. For examples, check out the write-ups for books on Amazon.com, or pull a book off your shelf and read the description, found either on the back (paperback) or the inside cover flap (hardback).
You may either paste it here or give us a link to a Google Doc or Dropbox file, or web page, where we can see it.
What are you publishing goals? *
Do you belong to a writer’s group? What feedback have you gotten from them? *
Are you familiar with using Microsoft Word’s Track Changes tool? *
Our book coaches use it to give their feedback, so if you're not familiar with it, we can send you a little tutorial!
What is your T-Shirt Size?
We like to celebrate writer victories. If you'd like to be part of the celebration, please give us your t-shirt size.
