A Dose of my Best Writing Advice for All Kinds of Writers, Journalers, and Content Creators

Jun 8, 2022

These days, many of us write as part of our daily life or to build our business and some of you amazing humans want to write to fulfill a dream — the dream of claiming your ideas and stories and sharing them.

You’re so lucky to be drawn (or forced) into writing because writing is miracle-gro for your soul.

No matter what outcome you seek, writing anything will change and expand you in ways you can’t even imagine.

Writing my memoir that nobody ever read changed me into a happier, braver, stronger person.

In honor of this truth, I’ve been making short videos on TikTok about writing, many of them drawn from what I teach and learn (I’m always learning!) from the writers in my writing programs.

About making Tik-Toks – I sort of suck at it. I’ve been doing it for a few months and still fumbling around. Trying new things is awkward and I’m a slow learner. But it’s such a great way to clarify, encapsulate, and share your ideas–just like writing. I have set a goal to get better!

I cherry-picked my best videos around writing and content creation for you to give you a quick dose of my best writing advice and to share my goofy awkward learning process with you.
