  • (16) weekly 30-minute 1:1 calls on Zoom to assess your progress, go over any questions/issues that may arise, help you get unstuck or gain clarity, discuss your story, brainstorm/problem solve, etc. These sessions keep you accountable and¬†make sure you never feel alone or confused in your writing journey!
  • On-demand video lessons to give you the exact blueprint needed to write your novel, as well as writing strategies, craft lessons, and mindset shifts to help you write a story readers will love. You'll have lifetime access to these videos, so you can come back to them as long as you need!
  • Templates and worksheets to help with plotting, outlining, developing characters, worldbuilding, and more!
  • A tracker to hold you accountable and keep you motivated while celebrating every milestone you hit!
  • BONUS -¬†For being part of the new cohort of this coaching program, you will be able to submit your work every week for feedback!

I'm Udeshika - mom of three young kids, published author, and writing coach.

I set out to create The Dawdling Dreamer to help people who are where I was less than three years ago: dreaming of writing a novel but filled with overwhelm, self-doubt, and a lack of strategy and time.

It's my goal to share everything I have learned - from a book coaching certification program, workshops and courses led by renowned authors and experts, and my own successful self-publishing journey.

In less than three years, my novel has sold over 5,800 copies, has 2.1 million KENP (Kindle Unlimited pages) read, and even hit a category best seller rank on Amazon.

My dream of writing a novel came true when I decided to take action. And yours can too.

Words from my coaching clients...

Sarah H.

"As a new writer, I was intimidated by the idea of writing a novel. However,¬†Udeshika made the process feel manageable and so enjoyable. Her coaching gave me the confidence to tackle my story idea head-on and the motivation to keep going, even when I started to doubt myself. Thanks to her support and encouragement, I was able to write my first draft in four months ‚ÄĒ something I never¬†dreamed was actually possible."

Emma T.

"Hiring Udeshika as my writing coach was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Not only did I learn valuable writing techniques and strategies that improved my writing and storytelling skills, but I also felt incredibly supported and encouraged every step of the way. Having someone to hold me accountable and cheer me on made all the difference. Thanks to Udeshika's expertise and guidance, I now have a complete first draft that I'm excited to revise and share with the world!"

Anya S.

"I cannot recommend Udeshika's book coaching enough! From day one, I felt like I had a partner in my writing journey and a clear roadmap for the first time. The feedback and guidance Udeshika provided were exactly what I needed to stay on track and motivated, and write a story that was better than I could have written alone. With her support, I was able to overcome writer's block and self-doubt and write my first draft with confidence. If you're serious about writing your novel, this program is a must!"
