The Best of 2017

Well…2017 is drawing to a close…this time of the year always seems to prompt reflection and spark celebration. It’s certainly been an eventful year for me. As many of you know, PsychWriter was born of my desire to share knowledge. As I worked towards launching my fiction platform it was a way to give to others. I didn’t really have any expectations of where it would lead me, although I certainly had hopes it would help my fellow writers. As it turns out, the hundreds of subscribers its garnered in just over 12 months, the offer of being a Resident Writing Coach for Writers Helping Writers, the rewards of being a freelance editor, the upcoming release of Grit for Writers, have all added up to a very humbling, encouraging and rewarding 2017. Thank you fellow lovers of the written word!

In the theme of reflection (the celebration part comes next week) I’ve collated the top 5 posts PsychWriter published this year. These are the five articles that had the most reads, therefore the greatest reach, and I’m concluding, must have been the most useful. Check out which ones you’re read, and which you may have missed thanks to life demanding attention.

Finally, a word of gratitude. Thank you for allowing me into your homes/computers/lives. It’s been a privilege to explore the fascinating field of psychology with you all. I look forward to another 12 months of writing and sharing 🙂
