Fuel your Fire - Three Cliches You SHOULD Follow...

I've always wanted to be a writer, ever since I was a little girl. My brother and I used to have our own "fake newspaper" that we composed on pages of notebook paper, still assembled like a book but missing the cover. At about age 12 I began writing short stories and poems. I followed my passion... Sign in to see full entry.

Writing Tip of the Night: Stop Making Excuses

I learned this one tonight. I have this client who is a complete sweetheart. He's a very intelligent doctor who has a great line of skincare products, etc. I've been writing for him for a little while and have yet to send an invoice, but sometimes I am overwhelmed by the medically technical nature...

Writing Tip of the Night - Even When You Don't Have Time, Make Time...

They say you should write at least SOMETHING everyday. I try, and I think most weeks and months I succeed. That could be because I am obsessed, or it could be because I am just that good. I'm hoping for the latter! But by writing something each and every day, I don't think they mean you have to... Sign in to see full entry.

Who Says You Can't JUST Write for a Living??

Dream of it as I might, I've really never been financially independent as a freelance writer. I've tried, on several occasions - after being laid of, and after being terminated because of my freelance writing. I work part-time at a small publishing company, writing articles, putting newsletters on... Sign in to see full entry.

Turn Your Vacations into Future MONEY, Future Article Sales!

As any good writer knows, inspiration for the next great article comes in many shapes and sizes. Even when at rest, a typical writer's brain is still whirring away - even if subconsciously. We writers never really take a vacation in the truest sense. Our work, our livelihood, is generally also our... Sign in to see full entry.

Invest in Yourself!

Tonight I took a break and didn't do any writing for cash. I really needed to, but I spent time working on a website with a friend, catching up with old friends and snapping a few random pictures. I also posted three articles to C-C, in the hopes that I might sell something. They've got reprint... Sign in to see full entry.

Sometimes all it takes is a swift kick in the rear....

I've been procrastinating when it comes to certain projects on my freelance plate. For some reason, some projects appeal to me more than others, and it's usually the projects that pay more handsomely that suffer. Why this is, I do not know. Today I had wanted to go to a gym and start taking pilates... Sign in to see full entry.

Three things every query letter must have if you want to SELL, SELL, SELL!

Writing query letters to editors in the hopes of scoring a new assignment can become quite the daunting task. It takes time, effort, energy and mental alertness. It also takes some creativity. If you really want to sell your article, you've got to sell yourself first. Your query letter has got to be... Sign in to see full entry.

To be quite honest, I'm not exactly in the most "writing" of moods. I just did two hours of yoga with my sister, which was awesome - both our first times doing yoga or anything like it. I am hungry all of a sudden and really wish I could eat something. I just ate one cookie since finishing our yoga... Sign in to see full entry.
