Seven Tips That Helped Me Write

Here are the seven tips that I have shared on this blog so far.

I actively use all of them in my own freelance and fiction writing, and I find them invaluable!

1. Poetry writing advice: This one was a post on distilling, as much as possible, the art of writing poetry for someone who wants to attempt it seriously.

2. Capturing writing ideas: This post talks about the ability to capture and record ideas easily using available technology.

    This post was a great resource – wow. I love the whole “blog” idea. Writers do so much in solitude and we can all come together through our blogs and sharing our ideas.
