Here’s what happened on the blogs this week…
Want to get the best writing jobs? You CAN get them… if you aim for them. You’ve got to aim at a target, rather than firing wildly.
If you want more great writing jobs, pay attention to the numbers.
Writing jobs… they’re everywhere. Unfortunately, the jobs which are easiest to get, are jobs you don’t want, if you’ve been writing for longer than a year or two. Over the past week, I’ve received several messages from writers complaining about writing jobs.
I coach writers. It’s a joy. I love talking with writers, and helping them. The biggest thrill I get is when a writer follows his own intuition, and creates something because of who he is.
I know that because the writer has stepped outside his comfort zone, and has created something that’s original, he’s taken a huge step forward in his career. Being yourself is not merely fun, it’s your key to ultimate success as a writer.
I love blogging. You know that I encourage you to blog, because it’s a hugely powerful tool. I’ve been blogging for over a decade, long before most writers had any idea of what blogging involved. There’s one huge mistake I see writers making when they choose a topic for their blog.
I was chatting with a writer who’s written the first draft of a novel. That’s a huge accomplishment. Many writers begin novels, few finish. Although he completed the first draft last year, he hasn’t looked at it since. He’s too embarrassed. “It’s bad, really bad”, he said.
