Tips to make things a little more manageable
- The key to successfully completing the challenge lies with preparation. You can join the WNFIN ‘preparation program’ to maximise your chance of completing your project. By joining, you will receive tips, support, checklists and even coaching sessions to help you along the way!
- Decide in advance what you want to write about.
- Decide in advance roughly how many words you want to write. With this in mind you can divide that number by 30 and work out how many words per day you will need to write.
