Each year I create a round-up of my most popular writing posts, and it’s always fascinating to see what’s resonated with readers of this blog.
My top writing posts 2020 (stay tuned for a readers’ post later this week) features a couple of evergreen favourites that show up each year (How to get the words written, anyone?) but also a real shift in the direction of writing tips for kids, which I find immensely pleasing.
I’m also thrilled to see guest posts by authors Sue Whiting, Adrian Beck, Helen Scheuerer, Tim Harris, and Louise Allan, written over the past few years, featuring so prominently on this list.
I love sharing my blog with other writers and it’s brilliant to see those posts continuing to gain momentum. The right guest post in the right place can be a gift that keeps on giving for authors (see this post about how to guest post effectively for tips about this).
But you’re here for the writing posts, and here they are, a countdown to the most popular.
