Lebron James said the following in a recent interview:

“At the end of the day the championship and greatness is never done by yourself, and that’s just life. I would never be sitting here if I did this whole journey on my own.”

We understand this about sports, but what about in other fields and industries? What about in writing?

Check out the following TED Talk that expresses this point exactly:

No wonder coaching in one of the fastest and most rapidly growing industries in today’s world.

And why should it be any different when it comes to writing?

There are a few ways you can go about getting extra sets of eyes on your work and even along your entire publishing journey. I have outlined them in the following, in order of the process.

1. Story and book coaching

If you would like guidance along the path to writing and publishing, consider hiring a book or story coach (you can get matched with one for your specific needs here). Book coaches know the industry and work alongside you as you write your piece, helping you shape it into a story that is ready for publishing, and that your readers will love. You can come to them with an idea for a story, or you could have already started it. Either way, they meet you where you are at and come along the journey with you.

2. Alpha readers
