Episode #12 – Make Writing Fun

Can you believe it is 2023? Ready or not, here we are. A new year can be a catalyst for new things, like writing your life stories.

Are you writing? If so, great! Keep going. If you’ve stalled out, today’s writing tip will help reignite your desire.

In life, we often must do things we do not want to do, but writing doesn’t have to be on that list.

Find a way to make it fun.

What can you do to make your writing fun? Watch the video for some ideas. Then, shake up your writing process and see what happens.
