Writing Supervisors: How To Turn a Nuisance Into an Asset - Craft Your Content

Few of us enjoy writing and creating with someone over our head, constantly scrutinizing our every move.

Though sometimes, that is just what happens.

Whether it is the editor-in-chief at a newspaper you are writing for or a client that promised to be hands-off but has their hands in every paragraph you are trying to produce, as writers we have to deal with writing supervisors on a fairly regular basis.

But it doesn't have to be a struggle filled with agony! Chris Angelis offers some techniques and mindsets to get you working well with the supervisors in your writing career so you can all get to the end goal you want - creating a great piece of writing.

Having a writing supervisor—an editor-in-chief, a professor, or even a client—can be distracting. But it can also help you, if you know how to deal with it.

Sarah Blake shares how you can spot these attitudes so you can be aware and change your approach.

Writing procrastination is often caused by unhelpful attitudes toward the task at hand. Here are some ways to identify and change these attitudes.
