Is writing your new year’s resolution?

This is the time of year when many people think about what they want to achieve over the next 12 months. For some people, that goal involves writing. It might be a fiction or non-fiction book, thesis, family history, memoir or other piece of writing. A large piece of writing can be daunting which makes it hard to even get started.

Here are some tips.

  • Think about the overall structure.
  • Break the task into smaller pieces of writing.
  • Set deadlines for each piece of writing.
  • Learn how to use features of Word for long documents.
  • Remember the tip: What I really want to say is…
  • Make a start and fix it up later.
  • Join a local writing group for support.

If you want to write, but don’t know what to write about, think about your passions and what interests you. It is always easy to write with passion.

An editor can help you at several stages of your writing, from the initial planning to the finishing touches. An editor can help structure and organise your writing at the beginning, and also copy edit your writing to ensure consistency and clear communication, whatever your audience and message.
