Survival 101: Succesfully Work from Home

It's a jungle out there, and it's a madhouse in here. Why? I work from home. Yes, I said the magic phrase, "work from home." It gave you the tingles, didn't it? 80-90% of the U.S. would like to telecommute at least part-time, and that's because it sounds amazing. Are you picturing waking up, grabbing your laptop, and working from bed? Sure you are! You're also probably imagining weeks in nothing but pajamas, working whatever hours you want, and freedom to do whatever you want. I hate to burst your bubble. [...]

The Life of an Aspiring Author

I've been an aspiring author for seven years, seven months, and twenty-five days. I've written over three-hundred thousand words. I've worked on six different stories. And I have completed exactly zero novels. There is no honest way that I can say I'm proud of myself. There's no reason why I shouldn't have a completed book by this point. You've heard of serial entrepreneurs, I'm a serial wannabe writer. I'll work on something, write thousands of words, be happy with it, hit a road block, and then toss the whole thing in [...]

Listening to Your Freelance Clients

It's amazing how reality and your perceptions rarely line up. No matter if you did all your research beforehand, when you're actually in the middle of the situation, it's an entirely different story.

And so when you finally arrive at your destination, instead of excitement, you're left with a sick stomach and wondering if you made the wrong decision. I've arrived, and I have a stomach ache. I find this especially ironic considering that, according to the Huffington Post, [...]

10 Reasons To Be a Writer

There are many reasons to be a writer. In fact, it's far more difficult to come up with reasons why not to be a writer than why you should be a writer. The list below hits the high points. 1.

Writing and Comic Con

I recently had the pleasure of attending my very first Comic Con (C2E2). I have a large inner nerd and I'm very proud of her. No, I didn't do any cosplay this time around, I much prefer to be the silent watcher and observer.  It's a symptom of my introverted personality and being a writer. As a writer, I like to watch the world and Comic Con was a perfect opportunity to observe. I mean, who wouldn't want to walk by a troop of Star Wars characters? Besides the amazing [...]

How To Craft Great Content

Crafting great content isn't easy: whether you're advertising for a new product/service, responding to a prompt, or trying to write a book that will actually sell copies. When you open up a new Word document or grab a pen and paper, it can seem as if the words escape you. They can be as elusive as that leprechaun you tried to catch when you were a kid. And, unfortunately, there's no big secret. I'm not about to provide you with the "ONE BIG IDEA" that will magically change everything and get you your pot of [...]
