Bryan_Hutchinson_Positive_Writer_5Hello, I’m Bryan Hutchinson, and I’m a writer. My work has been published in newspapers, national magazines, books, on world famous blogs, and on toilet paper. (So, yes, I guess my work’s been flushed.)

I created Positive Writer for fellow writers who are stuck like I was, stuck in doubt, uncertain of their abilities, and yet, have an overwhelming desire to create work that matters.

I overcame Writer’s Doubt, and you can, too!

The articles you’ll find on Positive Writer are all written with the purpose of encouraging, inspiring and motivating you to do what you want to do and be AWESOME doing it!

Bryan’s blog–Positive Writer–is exactly that: positive! The posts are full of encouragement and practical advice that can help every writer plow through rejection and waiting and disappointment and find joy in the writing journey. No wonder Positive Writer wins awards and is highly acclaimed. We all need a shot of “positive” to keep us going. Thanks so much, Bryan! ―C. S. Lakin
