In 2022 I started setting time aside every Friday for personal one-on-one coaching.
The best uses for these consultations are loglines, story idea help, and short treatments. We can cover other topics as well, just let me know when you sign up.
Because of the expense, please be sure you know what you want to achieve in the consultation to get the best use out of it.
We can talk about anything you want, but have an objective for yourself.
Be specific. Know what you want to walk away with before the meeting.

Tom reawakens their passion for their own material

"I've been in the room when Tom has worked with other professional writers. I've seen their eyes light up as he helped them get their story on the page. It's really quite impressive. He doesn't impose himself, he helps them achieve their own goals for the script. These are professionals, mind you, and it seems like Tom reawakens their passion for their own material.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the one hour schedule a hard out?

The talk itself can be pretty extensive, even with the first 25-page option. This sounds like it would go by quickly. It doesn't. We go into great detail as we discuss repeatable processes rather than just notes. Keep this in mind and schedule to go overtime in case it is necessary.

I encourage you to sign up for the courses I offer first, as you will get far more value out of our time together if you do.

I take a very limited number of appointments each week. One of the benefits of that is we get to slow down, and get the job done right, no matter how long it takes.

Can I get a refund if I'm unhappy with my purchase?

As stated in Teachable's Terms of Use, Coaching IS NOT covered by Story and Plot's 30-day student refund policy. As such, we highly recommend you know exactly what your goals are for the consultation ahead of time.

I can tell you, I have never had anyone ask for a refund for a course or a coaching session over 22 years of teaching

How do I schedule my appointment?

Upon purchasing coaching, you'll receive further instructions on how to book a time for your appointment.

Can I purchase coaching more than once?

Absolutely! If you find yourself in need of coaching more than once, simply purchase the coaching again.
