Hints & Tips For New Writers #11

17 December 2018

Recently I was chatting with a friend about keeping a writing journal. I’ve never been disciplined or practical enough to keep any kind of diary, but she made it sound so liberating and inspiring that I thought I might give it a try in 2019 – which means I might be asking for another giant notepad for Christmas. So what are the advantages?


So this month’s tip is to give journalling a try. If you give it up in February, at least you can still use the notepad for your novel.

That’s it from me this year. Have a very Happy Christmas and see you in 2019!
