When it comes right down to it, everything about writing success comes down to productivity. We may have great ideas, we may feel inspired, and we may have great connections. We may even have a publishing contract.
But if we don't actually produce the work, nothing else matters.
I'm excited that my good friend Jennifer Harshman is here to give us some tips to become more productive in our writing and business. Jennifer is a successful editor, book development coach, ghostwriter, and business owner. She is the owner of HarshmanServices.com and the editor of the book Find a Real Editor: Avoiding the Posers and Scammers, which is a helpful guide to evaluating editors for your writing.
In this conversation, Jennifer walks us through four obstacles to productivity, which are procrastination, perfectionism, pessimism, and paranoia. She also walks us through several P's that we need to put into practice, which include purpose, planning, persistence, and others.
I encourage you to also sign up for Jennifer's email list at her website listed above. You’re going to get a lot of great writing, productivity, and editing tips in your inbox. You can also connect with Jennifer on LinkedIn and Facebook.
