I worked out that I’ve written around 150,000 words in 2019 – and that’s just the fiction, not the blog posts, guest posts, freelance articles, media releases, social media updates and various other bits and pieces that I write.
In addition, I’ve visited 20-odd schools, presented at eight events and festivals, acted as MS Readathon Ambassador, celebrated the 1 million downloads mark for the So You Want To Be A Writer podcast, helped create the second Shoalhaven Readers’ & Writers’ Festival – oh, and launched So You Want To Be A Writer, the book.
So, with my new novel on the way in 2020, I’m taking some time out…
I’ve got one more ‘top 10’ for readers later this week, and then I’ll be seeing you all in 2020.
But, now for the writing top 10…
Top 10 posts for writers in 2019
This year’s top 10 features only two posts that were actually written in 2019 (possibly no surprise given the above), some perennial favourites and a couple that have stormed up the annual charts out of nowhere.
I hope you find them useful!
