It’s almost the start of 2011. Which means writers will be writing down the goals they want to achieve and the habits they want to break. But what about the habits you want to make?
Making writing a habit is your only shot at reaching your writing dreams.
While writing is about creativity and style, it’s also about creating good habits that make you productive. Because if you don’t get any writing done, then your creativity and style don’t really matter.
If you want to make 2011 your best writing year yet, challenge yourself to become the best writer you’ve ever been. And that starts with the Better Writing Habits Challenge.
