So you’ve pitched an idea to a newspaper, magazine or online publication and the editor has said ‘yes’.
The trouble is, you’ve now got to write the bloomin’ thing. And it’s sent you into full-on panic mode.
Sound familiar? If so, you’re not alone.
I’ve yet to meet anyone who doesn’t feel nervous about writing for a new publication or in a style they’re not used to. And that includes award-winning writers.
Here’s what I cover in this episode:
- Why having hang-ups about your writing means you’re probably a better writer than you think
- The most common writing mistake (and how to avoid it)
- How to write powerful beginnings and endings
