Any tips on editing?

One of the challenges I am having with my non-fiction book Juggling Life, Kids & You is that I keep on editing it and editing it and editing it. Will I ever be able to stop? I open the file daily now and re-read the last paragraph that I edited the day before, and change … Continue reading

Professional critique results + action plan

Two months ago I received back the manuscript assessment from Daniel Goldsmith Associates, for my book Juggling Life, Kids and You.  If you remember from my post in early October, I was hoping that I wasn’t going to have to make too many changes.  I’m pleased to say that results are positive – there’s definitely a market out … Continue reading

Keeping up the Postings on Multiple Blogs

I used to post daily on this blog until my writing challenge ended on 30 April this year.  I then promised to post regularly but have only managed four posts since then, with the last one being almost two months ago (and have only managed a couple of posts on some of my other blogs).  I could list a dozen … Continue reading

I’ve made it to 366 days!  Today is the final day of my Writing challenge and thanks to the leap year, I have an extra day to fill!  I’ve been planning my final few posts for a week or so now and whilst preparing Note 357 – The approach to taking time off from your daily blog, … Continue reading

Note 365 – Thanking blog readers and supporters (1 day to go…)

Writing was something that I used to keep to myself in the form of journals and I have many going back as far as age four.  It’s only in the last three years that I have started sharing what I write with others, and how wonderful it is to receive comments on topics that I thought wouldn’t have been of … Continue reading

Note 364 – Communicating changes to your readers

Whether you have 4 or 4000 readers of your blog, it’s important to communicate any changes so that your readers know what the blog is about, what to expect and when to expect it.  If you don’t post when you say you are going to post or all of a sudden change the whole purpose of the … Continue reading

Note 363 – What’s your label: Blogger, Writer or Author?

Six months ago I wrote Note 169 – When are you qualified to say ‘I am a writer’?. Since then I have written every day, taken an online freelance writing course, moved a few steps forward with my book, set up a web presence as a freelance writer, and so much more. It has certainly … Continue reading

Note 362 – Seeing human errors as learning opportunities

The way I would I describe a human error is one that is made by a person rather than a computer (or similar); however, I’m not sure that’s the right definition. From my research today, there are many explanations of the expression human error. I like About.com‘s definition which is “when a person makes a … Continue reading

Note 361 – Writing challenge horizon in sight (5 days to go…)

I would be lying if I said that this writing challenge has been easy; in fact it’s been harder these last few weeks than it has been all year. With 5 days to go, I feel like I’ve been on a very long flight and now I’m starting my descent into a new and exciting … Continue reading

Note 360 – About the Versatile Blogger Award

I’m touched to have received the Versatile Blogger Award for the second time.  A very big thank you to Heart Whispers for nominating me (Heart Whispers is a fantastic blog – definitely worth a visit).  Also, it’s taken over a week to pass this on – I had to schedule a place in these last few posts of … Continue reading
