Here it is – the inaugural episode of the Writing Talk Podcast.

In this episode I discuss how we go about achieving a working attitude to our writing.

What is the mindset that we need to develop if we want to progress with our writing?

How do we go about establishing that mindset and how do we maintain it?

Thank you for listening and remember, your comments and questions are welcome below.

Action Points

If your profiles say “aspiring writer” or something like that, go and change it now. If you’re a writer, you’re a writer.

Finish something today! It doesn’t have to be something big – complete a piece of flash fiction, a short poem – but finish it.

Feels good doesn’t it?

If you want that feeling again, you know what to do.
