Allow me to introduce you to,
Group Author Coaching
When you are ready to show up for yourself and accomplish the writing that you so badly want to write, join Dot
You don’t have to write alone.
Dot is an intimate members only Writing Accountability Group, affectionately known as a "WAG." With only five members per group, all members are able to support each other and have their pain points, frustrations, and concerns shared and heard.
Dot is a small inner circle of fellow writers (or those hoping to finally consider themselves a writer) all committed to accomplishing their writing goals.
Dot was developed to help high-powered women accomplish their writing goals. These writing goals do not necessarily have to be to write a book. This club is more about establishing a writing schedule and staying committed to your writing goals.
Your experience with writing doesn't have to be what you've always been told. It's OK to create an environment of support for yourself.
I'm Andrea Jasmin
Hello! I’m Andrea. I help writers get their books over the finish line. A common theme that I address during my one-on-one coaching is accountability. It's always a top reason why I’m hired! The writer is fed up and has decided to call in a pro and so we partner and make the magic happen!
I believe in the power of the group. I developed Dot to provide an opportunity for community. Humans are meant to “do life” together. We innately want to collaborate. We want to bounce ideas off of each other, we want to have a sounding board and a partner as we work through ideas, and pain points. And I'll be the first to admit, that we want to be cheered on.

I'M AN ORIGINAL CATCHPHRASE
Do Writing Accountability Groups really work?
Dot is modeled and inspired after the original WAG group developed by Johns Hopkins professor, Kimberly A. Skarupski PhD. Author of WAG Your Work: Writing Accountability Groups: Bootcamp for Increasing Scholarly Productivity. As she states,
“I’ve not seen any one tool that has faculty gain a greater sense of control of their writing process more than a WAG.”
Writing accountability groups are commonly used in Masters degree programs and with faculty of universities that are required to publish work often. They are used because they are a great tool. The environment creates results and helps to foster working with productivity and intention.
The success that writers of all kind have due to accountability is fascinating! External accountability is a powerful tool.
"Accountability is that glue that bonds commitment to results."
- Bob Proctor
Listen, we all thrive off of hearing GOOD JOB here and there. I know that I do!
Facilitated Group Meetings
Surround yourself with fellow like-minded people in an intimate group that are at a point in their lives where investing in their writing goals with their time and money is their top priority.
The Powerful Tool of Accountability.
Internal accountability does not come easy, but there is real power in external accountability. With Dot you have to show up for your peers and that’s a big deal. And while showing up for them you are also showing up for yourself.
Partners in crime: You will show up for them and they will show up for you.
"If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together."
