Writing Advice for Dec. 13-19, 2019
What's your proudest writing moment of the year?
|Nicholas Barron||Dec 20, 2019|
Hi Writer, are you ready for the holidays? Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, maybe you can enjoy some peace and quiet over the next two weeks. It’s a great time to take stock and reflect on the year. Which makes me wonder, what are you most proud of writing this year? Tell me your 2019 proudest writing moment.
I’ll share everyone’s answers in the next issue of Notes for Writers. Which, by the way, will be in your inbox on Jan. 3, 2020. There will be no email next week. So Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and I’ll see you in the new year!
Thanks for reading,
