If you plan on publishing a book, you need to be clear. Lack of clarity can result in loss of future profits, as an unhappy reader will tell others not to read your writing and published works. This remains the case whether writing fiction or non-fiction.   What makes writing clear to the reader? The …
A Rose by Any Other Name by Judy Croome   Walking into a grocery store to buy some butter, we go straight to the aisle marked ‘Dairy’, choose the brand we prefer and head to the till to pay for it. Imagine how difficult shopping would be if we couldn’t name the item we wanted. Shop assistant: ‘Can I help you?’ Me: ‘I’m looking …
What every writer can learn from a songwriter’s process It’s interesting that no matter how much our blog tries to be broad in its scope and appeal, we inevitably end up catering much of our commentary and advice to novelists. This is rather hard to avoid considering most people who call themselves “writers” are those …
It is not enough to have a blog and a website to earn money.  It is not enough to have some semblance of social media presence when you are an author.  There is a lot more at stake than a few dollars. I have paid a lot more attention to my website in the last …

            It’s true we all get stuck in ruts, not being able to navigate our way out successfully no matter how hard we try. I think we can all agree with Rebecca that the best way to emerge as a new and refreshed writer is to challenge yourself to be better. But how do we …
Admit it: you’ve hit a writing rut.  A very wide, very deep rut.  One that right about now seems to be far too deep to find a way out of it.  Everything seems to blah, and so… maybe if you try new something- but not really, you don’t have the spark the feeling of passion …
I could say that anything you do you can always do better, but that would sound a bit cliche.   Anyone can do anything that they try to and put their minds to, but at some point, all to often, there is something that “gives.”  You know that moment.  Take a blog for example. You …
