Would you like to write your story, but struggle to find the right words?

Greg, gently telling his internal critic to be quiet and go away

Here’s my husband Greg, gently telling his internal critic to be quiet and go away on vacation while he writes.  You too can learn how to do this and write great stories that influence other people in good ways.  I helped students in my October course “Write Your True Story.”  I know how to get around the internal critic and insecurity about writing, and I can help you achieve that goal, too. I will offer this course again sometime this summer.

You may not call that voice an internal critic, but feel you just don’t know what to do when faced with a blank page. You may think that you can’t start writing until after you’ve washed the dishes, or mowed the lawn, or……..any one of a number of things.  But it’s all the same hesitation about plunging in and just writing! I can share great ways to get past this problem and share your words the way you want to.

Writing with your own unique voice

I can help you write confidently and naturally. You’ll also learn some basic editing tips.  I’ve passed my methods on in courses at the Yellowstone Institute, the Osher Foundation program, and a number of retreat centers around the West.

Thanks to the internet, I can now help writers anywhere in the world, not just local people. In ” Write Your True Voice,” the small group of writers like you, shared my exercises. I provided tips and handouts designed to help them create with words.  The class was an energizing success for all involved.

Here’s what Barbara H. has to say about my course:

 Dorothy Patent’s ZOOM class,” Write Your True Voice “enhanced my writing with simple, fun exercises.  I’ve always dreaded re-writing anything.  Her exercises opened my eyes and pen to greater clarity.  It was actually fun!

I hired her as my writing coach and will take other classes she offers. 

Here’s what’s included in this course:
