How to free write

1 August @ 18:30 - 20:30


Editing as you write is a common practice, but it’s also one of the best ways to damage your writing confidence. You question ideas you’ve just written, leading you to second guess yourself and maybe even give up altogether. 

Free writing is the perfect way to stop yourself from doing this. But what is free writing? And can you really turn off your inner editor to let your characters run wild?


In this course, you’ll learn:

  • The benefits of free writing
  • Why writing and editing require different mindsets
  • How to stop editing as you write 
  • Ways to judge your ideas more objectively 
  • How to develop your free writing skills


About Kristina Adams

Kristina Adams is the author of six books and a blogger at The Writer’s Cookbook. On a great day, she can write 14,000 words and still have time leftover to play Two Point Hospital. On a not-so-great day, you’ll find her under a pile of books with a decaf soya vanilla latte.
