A manifesto is a public declaration of policy, aims and promises. These are mainly issued by political parties just before a big election and it’s fair to say, that many of them are not worth the paper they’re written on.
But a manifesto can be a positive thing; especially if we make personal promises which will ultimately get our arses (or butts) into gear so we can get where we need to be.
I may not be the world’s most successful writer, but much like you, I have an incredible amount of respect for the written word. It’s not easy being a writer, especially when there are so many distractions around all the time and that’s why I came up with a little something called the Wordsmith Manifesto – a small set of aims and personal promises that will help you keep your writing on track, no matter what.
Over the next month or so, I’ll be releasing each section one by one until every piece has been published. At the end, I’ll compile the manifesto into one whole piece which will be available for free download should anyone want it.
I hope this will serve to be a useful, yet light-hearted resource for anyone who loves words as much as I do (especially ‘Filibuster’ – that’s one of my favourites).
Thanks for reading and keep your eyes peeled for the first instalment of The Wordsmith Manifesto – coming soon!
