When I was growing up, I played tennis competitively. During the fall and the winter, I would trained three times a week in anticipation of spring and summer tournaments. Once I hit high school, I set a goal: I wanted to be a state champion. I started training every day. I worked with my coach, with my teammates, and with my friends. I ramped up my practices to include weight training, cardio, and strategy. My coach stood by me every step of the way. He pushed me when I wanted to be lazy. He gave me routines to run with my friends. He encouraged me when I thought I was incapable of reaching my goals. By the time I graduated, I was a three-time state champion.
I would not have been able to accomplish my goal if I hadn't practiced. Wait. Let me rephrase that. I wouldn't have been able to accomplish my goal if I hadn't practice a lot.
Tennis is like writing in two ways. Firstly, you have to practice regularly to maintain your hard work, and you have to practice even more to become great. It's difficult and it's challenging, but it is not impossible. You just have to be willing to work hard for your goals.
So what are your goals? Are you trying to avoid summer slide? Trying to prepare for college? Hoping to launch your own at-home business? Polishing applications for school or a career? Something else? Different goals require different types of practice. With such a wide range of possibilities for improvement, it can be difficult to know where it start.
And that leads us to the second way that tennis is a lot like writing: it helps to have a coach. Make this summer a success and sign up for a few sessions with a personal writing coach!

These benefits will give you the personal attention required for understanding your strengths, weaknesses, and methods for improvement. In other words, it will provide you with the key ingredients for transforming your hard work into a big pay-off.
My tennis coach always told me that whoever hit the ball in the court last was the winner. In other words, whoever could stick to their goal would get the prize. Isn't it time you started sticking to your goals? Let a writing coach help you get the prize.
