Writers in a Changing World


That’s all I can reasonably say about writing, writer’s block, blogging, CHANGE!!!!

Ah, yes, the dreaded word that forces us to live outside of our comfort zone, if only for a moment in time. That’s one thing the Internet is famous for…a constant state of change, and if you’re not prepared to deal with it, you’re likely to get swept away in the undertow – completely forgotten, misplaced only to land on some distant shore…another planet perhaps, a faint familiarity that serves only to remind you that as much as you love the Internet, you’re not too fond of always having to get used to it.

It’s certainly not like riding a bike now, is it? I mean, just when you think you know what you’re doing, someone has a better idea of how everyone else should be doing things on the web. The BIG GUYS >>>>you know who I’m talking about>>>>GOOGLE, FACEBOOK , TWITTER – and now PINTEREST too!!!  They’ve gone and decided change is all the rage…you’re raging, aren’t you? It’s okay, you can be honest about it. I won’t tell anyone….

Well, I hate to break it to you, but this blog is changing too...

I’m giving it the once over, following more blogs that share writing expertise than I care to think about and deciding that no one can teach anyone else how to write!

What I can do is share anything writing related in this blog.

Writers write. That’s all there is to it. Some follow all the rules and become quite successful. Others break all the rules and end up on the New York Times Best Seller List. Go figure! The Internet…that’s a completely different ballgame! Article writing, writing for clients, niche writing, blogging...

Writers share! That’s better. We write, read, comment, market, pitch…we are masters of outreach and we’re very good at using our words to do it too!
