What’s an Accountability consult?

An accountability consult is a 15-minute weekly check-in to help you stay your creative course, be it a specific writing project or an ongoing writing practice. You’ll generally have a smaller goal or objective in mind that you’ll work towards each week, keeping a larger goal or objective on the horizon.

Accountability helps keep you on track, but it also serves to have a cheerleader in your corner whose sole person is to support you as you move forward with your creative pursuits.

What Do I Get if I Buy the Bundle?

The Accountability Consult Bundle consists of eight (8) weekly sessions, 15 minutes each, at a discounted rate. Check-ins may be conducted via telephone or Zoom.

Why Work with Darien?

When I’m not writing, I help others get their words out into the world. I’ve been working with individuals and groups for over 25 years and I love it.

I can help you get your writing project off the ground, troubleshoot a troubled manuscript, or coach you through the equivalent of a writer’s midlife crisis. I’m a query queen, having waded through the slush pile and bounded past the gatekeepers for not one but three of the literary agents who currently represent me, and can advise you on putting a winning submission package together. I also work with people wanting to boost their creativity, identify personal priorities, or just need someone to cheer them on as they strive to meet their goals. I am masterful at unpacking almost any situation that seems stalled or hopeless, and finding an open door.

What Do We During An Accountability consult?

Here are a few things we can cover, but the time is yours to use in whatever way will be most helpful to you:

  • How did the week go — what worked, what didn’t?
  • Where are the areas you might want to pivot?
  • Looking ahead — do you need to adjust your focus over the next week?
  • What do you hope to achieve or experience by our next meeting?
  • What can I do to help you so you feel supported?

And if you don’t know what you need, but know that you’re stuck, leave it to me.
