Episode notes

It doesn’t matter if you’re not a professional writer - as a professional anything, you’re going to need to do a lot of writing. According to best-selling author Jamila Rizvi, this is a good thing, because your writing skills are like a muscle and therefore need constant training. 

She teaches you how to improve your writing no matter what field you’re in, and shares some tips for building momentum and staying focused during lockdown. 

Jamila also gives tips on how to edit your own work if you don’t have a professional editor, and how you can use friends and family to side-step the tunnel vision that gets in the way of good, clear writing.
