This Week: Creativity, and From Beginning Writer to Pro

This week, our theme was creativity. It’s impossible to teach creativity, because everyone is creative, and creativity comes from within. You are creative, and you can harness your creativity to help your writing.

Still, as someone once pointed out, it’s not enough to be creative, you have to be creative at something.

So, we discussed creativity in the context of pitching your writing. Every writer pitches, every day. The more proficient you become at pitching, the more money you will make.

10 Tips to Pitching Like a Pro

This article is in two parts.

Part 1: become enthusiastic, create a schedule and more

Part 2: give people what they want and follow trends

Beginning Freelance Writer to Pro

We’re running an on-going series, too – helping new writers to become professional writers.

Many writers want to write professionally, but it all seems too hard. With any luck at all, this series will inspire you to move forward.

Part 1: Create a Website

Your first step in turning pro, and it’s an easy one.

Part 2: Create Something to Sell

This is the second step – create something that you can sell, because a professional gets paid.

Watch for additional articles in this series. I had thought that this would be a series of three articles, but it needs more. My goal for the series is to inspire you to be the writer you want to be.

Shock of the week: Amazon will sell your fan fic

The world has tilted, and fan fiction has become legitimate. What a shock… On the other hand, since I’m cynical, I expected this as soon as Fifty Shades of Grey made its millions. If there’s money to be made, money will be made.

Here’s the article, Writing Fan Fiction? Rejoice, Amazon’s Giving You Money.

Become a Pro Writer in 5 Minutes (Ezine)

Our ezine’s topic this week was become a pro writer – in 5 minutes.

Read about the amazing woman, Jack Monroe, who used an old cell phone to blog… and ended up with a book deal.

I’ve read some of the earlier posts on Jack’s blog, and my admiration for her knows no bounds. She’s heroic. The Daily Mail wrote about her here.
