Episode #005: Eliminate your fear and master writing today – 7 incredible writing tips with Kathryn Britton

Do you struggle to write well … to write consistently … and to share your knowledge and stories with the world?

For a long time, I did.  Growing up, I always thought that great writing was something others did – you know, the creative eccentrics, the lone geniuses.  I struggled with procrastination when writing, I struggled with imposter syndrome, and I struggled with the fear of judgment by others.

Because of that, I spent a long time avoiding writing – whether it was writing at work, writing for school, or just writing for my own enjoyment.  It wasn’t until I went back to graduate school that I faced and conquered these fears.  Now, I do consider myself a good writer and I’m confident sharing my work with the world.

Don’t make the same mistake I did.  Eliminate your fear and master your writing!

Today I speak with Kathryn Britton about how you can integrate writing into your life and become a great writer.  We’ll discuss the most effective habits and practices of writing and provide key insights to help you improve your writing.
