How to Give Your Writing a Facelift This Winter

How to Give Your Writing a Facelift This Winter

freedom-skillshare-2For many of us in our Freedom community, November is about writing. Whether you’re participating in National Novel Writing Month (NanoWriMo), a freelancer, entrepreneur, or student – chances are you’ll be doing some writing in November.

As the days grow shorter and colder, it can be easy to fall into a winter, holiday season slump. Finding the necessary inspiration for your writing while trapped indoors or caught up with holiday to-do lists can be a challenge – and one that too often leaves us exasperated and counting down the days until the break.

Sometimes what we really need is some concentrated instruction, a new strategy to try, or some advice from an expert.

Luckily, we have just the thing to help you overcome your slump, get your creative juices flowing, and revamp your writing – all before New Year’s!
