Bumper Business Writing Boost For 2017


Over the Christmas holidays – and by way of saying thanks to all you lovely students – I thought I’d create an online Christmas stocking for you here, stuffed with some info goodies to help your freelance writing careers in 2017.

If you like podcasts, you may find Ed Kandia’s High Income Business Writing useful. He co-wrote a book ‘The Wealthy Freelancer’ and hey… who doesn’t want to be one of these?

I’ve mentioned Jorden Roper here before and her most direct and practical advice on freelance writing. She’s now got a You Tube channel and here’s a sample: 5 Reasons Freelance Writers Should Avoid Content Mills And Bidding Sites. Jorden’s viewpoint is spot-on here, I reckon.

This site posts jobs and is a collaboration between three freelance writers so it may appeal to you: http://www.freelancewritinggigs.com/2009/11/pitch-to-the-hidden-places-that-hire-freelance-writers/

Running a freelance writing career can feel rather chaotic, but the wonderfully professional Jane Friedman comes to the rescue here, with advice on marketing and publishing checklists for writers. Definitely a link for the New Year resolution wish-list.

And finally everyone deserves a treat at Christmas, don’t they? So here’s inspiration if you’re giving to a fellow writer – or indeed if you want to give yourself a gift – and why not? Warning: you may get distracted for some time here! https://uk.pinterest.com/taralazar/things-writers-like/

If like me, you’re hoping to get some undisturbed writing in over the holidays, then all the best for it.  Whatever you’re up to, I’d like to thank for your support this year and may you and your loved ones have joy and peace over the next couple of weeks.
