What are you hoping that readers will get from the resource you wrote?

I want anyone who picks up my resource to feel fully-equipped to plan (and maintain) their writing habit. Whether or not they personally like writing, it’s a necessary thing for running your business -- and I want people to feel confident and supported. Writing is creative, yes, but it’s also largely practical (especially when writing for your business) and I want people to feel the relief of that. You don’t have to feel magically motivated to write great content, it's way more about getting to work (consistently.)

 

What's your favorite quote about writing?

“Writing is hard work. A clear sentence is no accident. Very few sentences come out right the first time, or even the third time. Remember this in moments of despair. If you find that writing is hard, it’s because it is hard.”
― William Zinsser, On Writing Well: The Classic Guide to Writing Nonfiction
