Do mistakes that authors commonly make keep your writing from being powerful—and saleable?

How can you fix them before you hand over your manuscript for editing?

Barbara McNichol presents an hour-long teleclass on Wednesday, December 7 that addresses seven writing problems you might not easily recognize on your own—and how to fix them.

By participating in this teleclass, you’ll learn how to avoid these seven writing mistakes so your editor won’t have to fix them:

  1. Losing awareness of what your reader experiences.
  2. Addressing readers as readers, not as a single important person.
  3. Skimming the surface, not going deep enough.
  4. Having no rhyme or reason to the order of the paragraphs.
  5. Overusing weak verbs, extraneous phrases, and wobbly words.
  6. Using multi-word noun phrases when one active verb will do.
  7. Writing sentences that ramble on and on and on and on.

Don’t miss this opportunity to “go deep” and learn what fixes can strengthen your writing!
