This past week, we covered: writing a novel (with a nod to NaNoWriMo), blogging, "instant" ebooks, and more.
Here's what you may have missed...
Freelance writing is wonderful. Seriously. What’s not to like about working when and where you please, and only working with people you enjoy? But…
In Fiction Frenzy, I told you about Listing, which is another way of outlining. I prefer the term “Listing” because my brain tends to fry when I think about an outline. Thinking out outlines paralyzes many writers. Doubtless we were damaged way back in our school days.
Many of my conversations with writers start with the writer saying: “I want a blog”, or “I need a blog”. That’s because I’m always touting the advantages of blogs to writers.
No matter how many books you’ve written, you’ve never written THIS book before. Therefore, writing is always a challenge. That’s what makes it fun. It can be uncomfortable too.
You need to be able to write and sell ebooks FAST… especially now that the holidays are coming up. Speed wins, always. You need to know that if you need money, you can create a product in an hour or two, and sell it.
Many businesses use “free stuff” as a marketing strategy. Content marketing is based on free stuff. There’s nothing wrong with it. It works, as long as you’re making money.
Want to turn ebooks into a career? Our online world has made that possible. I love writing books; I started my writing career as a romance novelist. These days, I’m back to writing fiction, thanks to Amazon.
Everyone’s a writer these days. You need content for social media, for marketing, for presentations… My clients tell me it’s all too much.
Social media can help you to write and sell your book. If you’ve been using Twitter, and are frustrated with the 140 character limit to your tweets, you need to investigate Google+.
I’ve had several questions this week from writers who are wondering whether their book idea is viable. Here’s the solution: test your book idea.
Some truly awful writing may be all that’s blocking you from a wonderful writing career.
I love blogging. I’ve been blogging for over 12 years, so it obviously suits the way I write. In addition to blogging for myself, I’ve blogged for many clients.
These days, everyone in publishing, including writers, is looking for a new business model.
