  • Writing Journal 20: Planning Everything

    My writing journal for Monday, September 1, 2014. You can find all the writing journal entries here. An early start, with fiction and nonfiction. Managed 2,000 words on the novella (it’s steaming right along), and 1,500 on the nonfiction book. Honey’s breakfast, and email. Then my breakfast, while I read over a couple of short stories from students, and make notes, for the s ...

    My writing journal for Tuesday, September 2, 2014. You can find all the writing journal entries here.

    Want to write an ebook in a day? You can. As you may know, I write a lot of books, usually for clients.

  • Writing Journal 22: Tech Aggravations

    My writing journal for Wednesday, September 3, 2014. You can find all the writing journal entries here. My Internet connection died last night. I’ve had problems with this cable modem before.

  • Writing Journal 23: Copywriting and Workshop

    My writing journal for Thursday, September 4, 2014. You can find all the writing journal entries here. An odd morning, but in a good way.

  • Writing Journal 26: How to Make Writing a Habit

    My writing journal for Sunday, September 7, 2014. You can find all the writing journal entries here. Another wonderful morning for my fourth novella for my ghostwriting client: 2,700 words. It’s flowing like water, AND the characters keep surprising me. That’s the reason I love fiction: it’s a true joy when the characters become real. The nonfiction book is doing well too.

  • Writing Journal 27: Use Scrivener for Everything

    My writing journal for Monday, September 8, 2014. You can find all the writing journal entries here. I woke up this morning with an idea for Christmas short story. So instead of working on the novella I’m ghostwriting for a client, I decided to write the story instead. I managed 1800 words of the story; very satisfying. I’ll work on the novella later today, or perhaps tonight.

And, to ensure that you’re not taking too much time on it, there’s a timer too. What’s a pitch? A pitch is a sales tool. It’s a presentation.

  • Hate Pinterest’s Search? Go Look!

    If you hated Pinterest’s Search function, go and check it out. It’s a lot better. Search now has tags. I first became aware of this when I posted a pin, and Pinterest kindly guided me around all the improvements. The other interface changes seem cosmetic, but Search is a big deal. Pinterest Search: much improved When you type a search term into the search query box, Pinterest ...
