Quick Writing Tips Free Video Series

Looking for some quick, easy ways to improve your writing? Here’s a free series of short (each is under 5 minutes) writing tips videos. They focus on some of the most common prose problems that I’ve seen writers struggle with over my two decades of teaching creative writing.

My goal in making these videos was to demonstrate practical ways to make fiction more vivid, active, and engaging. They’re like drawing tutorial videos, only for writing. If you like this idea, consider subscribing to the Better Living Through Fiction channel I just launched.

Please feel free to share videos these with any writers and teachers you know. And if there are other aspects of writing craft you want me to focus on, let me know in the comments.

Happy writing!

PS: If you want more life-changing tips for writers, artists, and creators (the sort of stuff that goes way beyond craft) check out my new book, Breakthrough: How to Overcome Doubt, Fear, and Resistance to Be Your Ultimate Creative Self.
