Everyone Writes

Everyone writes, every day. Whether it's a Facebook status update, a tweet on twitter, a blog, a thank-you note, a recipe or a list, everyone I know writes and they do it daily. Did you know that writing for publication is different than any of this other writing?

Writing for publication is different because you are suddenly writing for someone else, not just yourself. You switch from simply getting your point across or your information shared to making it sell, and that's an entirely different ball game.

Learn how to write for publication with my e-book, Write, Then Publish. Today. You will learn why writing for publication is different and the steps you can take to make your writing appealing to publishers or e-readers.

Write often.
Write well.
Just write.

I've Been Thinking.....

I haven't posted on my writer's blog for nearly a month. That is very irresponsible, but I do have a good reason. After the busy holiday time, one of our sons and his wife came to visit us for 2 solid weeks! So, I was busy hanging out with them and didn't do much blogging. I love family time and it's a high priority in my life.

I did do some writing while they visited, though. I posted on one of my other blogs and also sold an article to Regular Baptist Press. I've been a regular, contributing writer for RBP for over 25 years now.

My break from blogging is over, however, so I'm back at it today with a plan to continue. One of the things I love about blogging is that it can be made to fit any schedule. That works for me.

During this brief break from blogging, I continued to read, write and think about my writing projects. Thinking is one of the most critical parts of my personal writing process. I can think about an article, project or e-book so much that when it comes time to write it, it's done in a flash. Most of the articles I sell are written in 20 minutes or less, but the time I've put into thinking it through is immeasurable.

Do you think before you write?
Write well.
Write often.
Just write.
