I write my draft and then my writing coach makes suggestions about how to say things more naturally and she also corrects my mistakes.
- What are your writing goals?
I want to write my newsletter faster and sound more natural.

It helps that I can check with my writing coach. With her feedback, I feel I am finally making progress and writing what I really mean to help my clients.
