What’s holding you back? Quick survey on writing hurdles

Reading time: Less than 1 minute

You could win a prize for filling in a quick survey about your writing habits and hurdles. Just four questions that will take you only a couple of minutes…

I’m turning the tables today.

Instead of my regular newsletter, I’m providing a quick survey and asking YOU to tell me about yourself. 


I want to make sure I know you better. What type of writing do you usually do? What are your biggest challenges?

Knowing your answers to these questions will help me give you better, more meaningful topics in each week’s newsletter.

As well, I’ve started to produce new material in recent years – my How to Hire an Editor and Banish Your Fear of Writing courses — and I want to make sure that any future content really and truly meets your needs.

So, this very quick and easy survey — it contains only four questions — will take you no more than a couple of minutes. I’m asking you to consider filling it out today. 

In fact, to provide extra encouragement, I’ll be offering a prize. All survey participants will be put into a draw and a person chosen at random will receive a copy of my book Your Happy First Draft, OR free membership in my course Banish Your Fear of Writing. (Your choice.)

Here’s the link for entering. Please fill it out today.

Thanks so much for your help in making Power Writing a better, more useful newsletter.
