Q and A Creative Development

Finding Your Success with a passionate Development Coach

Message from the shop: I’m Maya (*waves*), Q&A Creative Development’s main Development Coach. Having worked as a project coach and consultant since 2017, I’ve seen writers come to a standstill for every reason under the sun, and a few reasons that never see the light of day. My goal is to help you get past that wall, and back on the path toward your passion – your writing.

  • Let's Talk Events with Prolific Writers Life Expert Maya Carlyle

    Let’s Talk Events

    $65.00

    (PWL Experts; this one could be great for you!)

    Do you lead events, meetings, workshops, or classes? How about just leading other people?

    Taking the lead can be wonderful, as it opens up a world of creativity! But, it also puts a lot of responsibility on your shoulders. Leadership means that the details are yours to deal with – details like…

    • How do you identify your target audience?
    • What time is best for your target audience?
    • How long should your event be, in order to maximize attention and learning?
    • What should you name your event, in order to catch the right audience?
    • What is the value of collaboration? How do I go about finding someone to work with?
    • How do you get your audience to actually show up?
    • What could possibly go wrong with you event? How do you stop it? Or, how do you cope when you can’t stop it?

    With two decades as a Meeting/Event Professional, I’ve seen just about everything that can go wrong (and right) with virtual and in-person events. Let me share that experience with you. I can share general tips, ticks, and best practices – or, bring your event idea, plan, or blueprint and we’ll work together to polish off the rough edges.

    Sessions are an hour (but, like all events, things can be adjusted on the fly).

    I’m looking forward to making your events shine!

  • Your Creative Success: Professional Support for your Creative Project Development

    Your Creative Success: Professional Support for your Creative Project Development

    $65.00

    Do you have a story you want to bring to life? How about an idea that won’t get itself in order? Maybe you have writer’s block? Or you procrastinate like it’s a hobby, even though you wish you could just get it written!? Or, maybe it is written, and now you need to -*gasp*- market it! Where do you start?

    Sometimes a creative project – a book, a blog, a marketing campaign – just needs a little support, and a session with a Development Coach may be the help you need in order to find (and start progression along) your creative path.

    What is a Development Coach?
    A Development Coach, DC for short, is someone who works with you toward one goal: your success. A DC wants to help you get in touch with your inspiration, your passion, and your expertise. They will guide you through exploring your ideas, discovering the core therein, and help you figure out step one toward your success, and then step two, three, four, and all the steps after that if needed.

    I’m Maya Carlyle (*waves*), Q&A Creative’s main Development Coach.

    Having worked with writers since 2017, I’ve seen writers come to a standstill for every reason under the sun (writer’s block, bad reviews, ruthless editors, analysis paralysis, too many ideas, and so much more), and a few reasons that never see the light of day. My goal is to help you get past that wall, and back on the path toward your passion – your writing.

    Sessions are an hour (but, like all plots, things can be adjusted as the story unfolds).

    I’m looking forward to helping you get one step (or more) closer to your success!

  • Your Social Media Marketing Plan with Development Coach Maya Carlyle

    Your Social Media Marketing Plan – Creative Development consulting

    $65.00

    Get a beginners’ guide to social media marketing, starting with Facebook and Instagram posting. Make your marketing life easier with scheduled posts and easy responses.

    No need to be super tech-savvy; this is for those just beginning their personal platform, and together we’ll create a firm foundation that you will be able to build on in the future.

    What is a Development Coach, and how can one help my marketing?
    You may be familiar with the title of “development editor.” Well, a Development Coach, DC for short, is similar, in that they work with you toward one goal: your success. While most development editors and coaches will focus on your creative work, the one you are about to meet also holds a certification in Social Media Marketing (DMI, AMA).

    That’s right; not only does this DC want to help you get in touch with your inspiration, your passion, and your expertise, they also want to help you get the word out! Together, you and the DC will explore your ideas, uncover your already existing marketing skills and strengths, and help plan out step one toward your success… then step two, three, four, and all the steps after that if needed.

    I’m Maya Carlyle (*waves*), Q&A Creative’s main Development Coach.

    Having worked with writers since 2017, over and over I’ve seen writers ready to throw their hands up when the time comes to market their work and themselves. Some of it is a hesitance to brag, and some of it is a lack of familiarity with the tools and methods, as well as the science and art, of marketing.

    Together we’ll build you a firm foundation from which to start your marketing journey.

     

    Sessions are an hour (but, like all plots, things can be adjusted as the story unfolds).
