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 …
Why it is so hard to self-publish and earn money on a book?  I’ve heard so many numbers, I’m not sure what to think. This is one of the reader questions submitted for this month.  It seems like a simple question, because it seems to some it is hard making money self-publishing a book. It’s …
Writers need editors, and editors need to improve the writer’s work so people will love their writing.   The same holds trues with any art form, and Sister Act has one of the best examples I can think of. I’m sure we’ve at least heard of this movie starring Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith (of Harry …
This writer’s question from an email is simple: they asked that if they write and publish 50 blog posts and get $1 a day from that, then logically this means that by writing 5,000 of them in a short time span- a few months- they would make $100 per day.  I suppose one can’t argue …

Writing requires courage.  There are a lot of people who love to write, not just as a career but as a hobby, and there are some wonderful works out there, including fan fiction.  There is a point when you learn so much more by stepping out of your comfort zone. You can write almost anything …
