Your Inspired Writing Coach
Even as a kid, Lynda McDaniel loved to encourage the creativity of her young friends. Today, she coaches and inspires adults to confidently produce books, blogs, and articles to promote their passion in life.
So how did she become a writing coach? Of course it started with lots of writing. Lynda’s written 1,200+ articles for major arts and culture magazines such as Southern Living, Country Living, AmericanStyle, NICHE, Southwest Art, Yoga Journal, Associations Now, American Cinematographer, Arches, Chile Pepper, and Restaurants USA. Newspaper articles about art, food, and business ran in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Charlotte Observer, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and washingtonpost.com, among others.
In addition, Lynda has authored a dozen books, including two award-winning books: Words at Work and Contemporary Hawai’i Woodworkers. She is currently working on two new books about creativity and the writing process. Lynda has also coached executives and staff at organizations such as Microsoft, Visa, Citibank, and University of Washington to help them write more effectively. She’s looking forward to doing the same for Made Local.

You’ve got a great story to tell—a story that no one else has. In fact, your story is almost
as important as your product. That’s because all of us—your customers, gallery owners,
friends, and family—are wired for stories. Scientists have proven that stories light up our
brains and trigger emotions, where we buy and buy in.
This webinar shares proven techniques to add oomph to your business, product, &
professional profiles, which you can use in your galleries, stores, newsletters, articles,
blogs, Web pages, books—even your Facebook pages.
In this 1.5 hour webinar, you’ll learn how to:
1. Deconstruct profiles to find a blueprint for yours
2. Brainstorm about your accomplishments and your vision
3. Write your first draft fast (and other speedwriting techniques)
4. Use similes, anecdotes, examples, and case studies to reinforce your message
5. Add creative techniques to make your bio shine
6. Create a call to action that ensures the response you want
“We’ll explore all these possibilities, reserving time for actual writing and coaching,”
Lynda says, “I love helping people get over the hurdles of writing—everything from how
to chase away the fear of a blank page to how to create a polished piece. You will leave
this lively presentation with a renewed sense of confidence and new techniques for
writing your bio and other promotion materials.”
