I want to know what’s going on with you and your writing, so I have put together a short survey to ask about the biggest challenges right now between you and the writing you want to do (i.e., the creative act of writing, not the business of writing–that’s a whole other conversation). I’ve drawn the options from conversations with writer friends and aspiring writers about what holds them back. You’re welcome to expand on your answer in the comments.

Why am I asking? First of all, because I care–but then, if you know me, you know that already. Secondly, because if I know what kind of writing information will help you most, that’s what I’ll make a priority to write about. I realize the focus of this particular survey is somewhat narrow, but don’t worry–I’ll be soliciting your feedback on a regular basis on all kinds of topics.
If your biggest challenge is not included in the options please add it in the comments if you feel comfortable to do so. I’m planning to run surveys like this from time to time to check in with you, and I’ll use your input this time to refine future surveys.
Please don’t feel like you need to give a “definitive” answer: the answer-of-the-moment is just fine. What’s your biggest challenge today, right now, this second? That’s all we need to know.The thing about writing challenges is that we're all in this together. Click To Tweet
My personal experience with my own writing, and with talking with writing friends too, is that these kinds of writing challenges are A) possible to address, B) easier to tackle when you know how, and C) faced in some way at some point by almost all writers (at least those who are honest about it). In other words, we’re all in this together.
Thanks for sharing.
