Joelle is the founder of Brooklyn Book Doctor. She works with authors to help them complete their book projects—whether it’s crafting the proposal or completing the manuscript.
Her job is to be as much creative partner as it is project manager.
After Joelle and I wrapped up our conversation, she told me: “the human element is a huge piece of the puzzle.”
And, honestly, if you listen for this idea throughout this interview, I think you’ll see what she means.
Joelle has become a master of managing for the human element in the creative process. And while Joelle has to manage the human element with her clients, we have to do this for ourselves every day.
Joelle and I talk about the tools she uses to manage different types of writing projects, what she’s learned about managing projects for creative people, and how her project management system blossomed into its own offer for working clients through the book proposal process.
