Some thoughts you just have to get down on paper:

  • A key message . . . 

  • A bright idea . . . 

  • A clarification . . . 

  • A bone to pick . . . 

  • A memory worth preserving . . . 


No time like the present—get it done now and get it done right.




Your Point of View

Clients often ask me to work one on one with them to think through a topic or "tweak" (their word) an existing draft. These confidential collaborations result in speeches, memos, reports, articles, letters, even blog entries.

Sometimes we work face to face, but usually we connect by phone and email. I take notes on our conversation, write a draft, send it to you for review, then we talk about changes that I incorporate.

Increasingly, we use the file-sharing capabilities of web-conferencing software to work together "live" but at a distance, with the document in front of both of us on our respective computer screens. This way, when I make a change, you see it immediately and vice versa. You can even reach through your computer to mine to make changes yourself. I've spent upwards of eight hours at a stretch this way with an energized client. Seeing the final draft is rewarding, and, for busy people with other work to do, this process gets the job off their desk.

Whenever you think two heads might be better than one, contact me.
