The Hubspot Writers Guide - Stop with all of the excuses!

I don't remember how I ended up on Hubspot's email list, but I'm certainly glad I did. Just about every week I receive an email from them with content that interests me. Today, I received a link to this great guide written by Corey Eridon and fantastically designed and edited by Shannon Johnson:

Given that I love writing, yet I often struggle with how to communicate clearly, I downloaded the guide and read through it. I was blown away by the fantastic advice and wanted to pay it forward to you all. If you write a blog, a book or have any interesting in writing at all, you should read this.



  1. Excellent advice indeed! On page 27 I'd have included the following quote

    “I didn't have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.”

    ― Mark Twain

  2. Hi Andy, I'm glad you ended up on their email list, as well ;) My favourite slide was #11: "Writer's block is [...] no reason not to write" - maybe that advice will work for me. Many thanks to Corey and Shannon for creating this, and to you, Andy, for sharing with us. This is brilliant.
