    Finding the right career isn't just about your skills and capabilities: it's also about getting a fit between your personal working style and the role that you're in. If you can find a career that suits your preferences, you'll be more satisfied, less frustrated and ultimately more likely to achieve success.In this article I'll examine the concept of Personality Type as used in the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), a tool which can help people to identify their personal style and use that knowledge to be more successful at work.Learn how you can identify your own personality preferences…

    The last thing you want in these ‘uncertain times’, as many would call it, is to take more risks – especially when it concerns your very own means of living. So, why do people still do it? Why are the number of freelancers rise each year? And, how on Earth could many still choose to freelance no matter how the odds seem to work against them? Call freelancers what you like and they’re certainly not some dare devil pushed out by dire circumstances from the plane of security, plummeting hundreds of feet to their career’s demise – minus the reserve chute on…

    Can you maintain your focus when writing? If so, you’re a wonder! Most people struggle to maintain focus. They feel scattered and find it difficult to stay on track. I recently got an email from one of our readers, Barrett Caton. He said: I tend to over-think things when I write. Sometimes it just feels like a part of my mind is scattered all over the place, and it’s affecting my writing. How can I remove this annoying barrier? Do you suffer from a similar malaise? If so, don’t worry. You’re not alone! The reason we struggle to maintain focus is simple: our brains…

  • Enter a Writing Contest: a Way to Share your Work and Make Some Money

    One way to share your work and get it noticed is to enter a writing contest. You may think that the odds of winning are about the same as winning the lottery, but keep in mind that many people may read and ad for a contest and decide the same thing. That fact will eliminate a certain amount of the potential competition. Factors that Cut Down on Pool of Contestants to Writing Contests 1.

    Pre-what? That’s what first came to mind when I read the word “precrastinator”, but my brain quickly took it in, knowing full well how procrastinating is a big issue for many freelance writers. There have been quite a lot of studies focusing on procrastination – why it happens, what it does to productivity, and even how it affects the health of individuals because of stress. Source Blog posts and online how-tos dealing with procrastination can easily be found, but it is not common to come across something dealing with the opposite: being a precrastinator. What exactly…

    You’ve probably had the experience of starting a novel or blog with great intentions… …only to find that, a few months later, you’ve barely made any progress. Maybe you started strong but lost momentum. Maybe you jumped ahead when you should’ve paused. Or maybe you got discouraged and gave up. And you wonder: how to write a book (or blog). I’ve coached many writers in workshop groups over the past few years, and I’ve noticed that there are six key stages when projects often stall or go wrong. Here’s what to watch out for.   Danger Stage…

    Have you ever wondered how to become a freelance writer? Maybe you think it’s a challenge to find clients for your freelance writing business. Maybe you’ve tried your hand at in-person networking events. Pitched editors and marketing managers of companies? But the results are far below your expectations. There’s a much better alternative you might be missing. How I Accidentally Discovered Online Networking In mid-2012, I received a request from an acquaintance to connect on LinkedIn. I already had a LinkedIn account but it was dormant, with just 60-odd connections.
  • Is Your Book Cover Design Stopping You From Being On The Bestseller List?

    Would you like to see your book on the bestseller list? Who wouldn’t enjoy seeing the words “A New York Times Bestselling Author” gracing the cover of their next work? While it is simply not possible for every author to gain “bestseller” status, even new authors’ books can carry the same quality and professionalism as those of established names in the business.   Bestselling Books Usually Have the Best Designs   As you walk through your local bookstore, you’ll see covers ranging from the bold type of John Grisham’s latest thriller to…

    You can spend hours crafting the perfect copy for you marketing email. But if your email gets ignored, all your efforts will be wasted.On the flip side, the more people who open your email, the greater the impact of your hard work.The most important strategy for making sure your emails are opened is to write effective subject lines. According to this study from MailChimp, a good subject line can be the difference between an abysmal open rate (below 10%) and an amazing open rate (above 50%).Aside from writing good subject lines, what else can you do to boost your open…

    You've created an email list because you want to communicate with your customers. For that to happen, your subscribers must open your emails. Effective subject lines get your emails opened. So how can you write effective subject lines?Why "Attention-Grabbing" Subject Lines FailRecently, email marketing software provider MailChimp published research that uncovered a paradox at the heart of email subject lines. For their research, MailChimp analyzed over 200 million emails that were sent out using their software.At the top end, emails were opened by 93% of recipients. By contrast, the…

    Andrew Blackman
    15 Jul 2014 | 5:19 am
    Buying a franchise can be a very smart decision for entrepreneurs. Instead of building a business from scratch, you get access to the brand recognition and marketing clout of a more established business, as well as a template for running the franchise profitably.But it’s also possible to lose a lot of money if you rush in and buy without fully understanding what you’re getting into. The salespeople might make a franchise sound like a rock-solid investment opportunity, but remember that it’s their job to make it sound that way. Your job is to do the necessary research so that you can…

    Want to become a full time writer? It’s easier than its ever been. This week’s offerings will help you to develop a great writing career. The two things you need to become a full time writer: writing and buyers. Essentially, to become a full time writer you need two things: Writing which sells; Clients and/ or readers who buy enough of your writing so that you have a full time income. Nothing else matters. No, you don’t need a website or a blog, although obviously they help. Let’s look at those two things in a little more detail. 1. Writing which SELLS. You’re…
  • Marketing for Writers: Get Hired Via Your Blog

    Angela Booth
    24 Jul 2014 | 8:21 pm
    Marketing for writers is a tricky topic, because most of us hate marketing with a passion. We’re writers, why oh why do we need to be marketers too? I feel your pain, but… Here’s why: in 2014, there are millions of writers around the globe. Writing has become competitive, because there are so many people who claim to be “writers.” Putting it bluntly: if you don’t market, others are eating your lunch. Today, we can’t afford to stand above it all, waiting and hoping for prospective clients to get in touch. Even if you have a full order book, your clients may cut back on their…
  • Writing Exercises: Try Them, They Work

    Writing exercises can be immensely useful, but few writers bother to do them until they hit a block. That’s a shame, because writing exercises can not only help you to improve your writing, they can make writing less stressful too. A few months back, I published Writing Exercises: Tap the Other 99.99 Per Cent of Your Brain, and I’ve just updated it with another exercise: I’ve found Gabriele Rico’s clustering concept immensely useful. Clustering works much as your brain does, by associations. Start with a word, and circle it in the center of your page. You can see that the…

    It’s time to take the next step in your writing career, and become a writer entrepreneur. What does a “writer entrepreneur” do? He uses his writing skills to forge his own path as a writer. He sets his own hours, and his own rates. And he makes an excellent income. Do you want your writing freedom? I work with writers every day. Many are frustrated. They have challenges with their clients, with their mindset, and with completing work. They have little creative freedom. They fail to see that opportunities are all around them, which they could take advantage of easily. Want…

    You want to write Kindle fiction, and you’ve heard that writers can sell short stories on Amazon. However, you’re unsure how to start. How do you write a short story which sells? Recently I was working with a couple of writers who were convinced that they couldn’t write fiction. One said, “I don’t have any imagination,” the other said: “I don’t know where to start.” Everyone has an imagination, and more to the point, you can train your imagination to provide you with characters and plots. We’ll look at “where to start” in this article. 1. Start Your Short Story With a…

    Been a while since I’ve blogged, and I’m very sorry about that. Have been neck-deep in a maelstrom of change, deadlines, and life upheavals. With the dust settling, let’s just say that I’m a touch behind… Our new place is great (everyone here treats us like gold) and we’ve managed to get the kitchen, master bath, and living room up-and-running. The rest of it, though? HAH, HAH, HAH!

At least Rimmon’s happy. To say I’m preoccupied is an understatement. Moving is turning out to be a bigger deal than we thought it was going to be on top of deadlines and what-have-you, because we’re also shifting our home office, still need to work full-time, and deal with 5+ years of stuff. Plus, I was really sick for two weeks, and other unexpected hilarity.

    Monica Valentinelli
    1 Jun 2014 | 1:34 pm
    Thought I’d share some photos of the interstitional fiction from Mortal Remains. I had a blast designing these pieces and putting together the art notes. The idea behind the fiction was to take a group of everyday hunters, and toss them into a situation where they find they’re in over their heads. In this case, it’s a murder investigation. Each piece, which precedes the chapter, offers a clue to the overall mystery and reveals a little bit about what an encounter, or evidence a hunter might find. Some antagonists, like the Mummy, never cross paths with the hunters. Others,…

    21 Jul 2014 | 2:18 pm
    You may be doing everything right and still never hear back from an editor on an assignment that you thought was a done deal. And oh, how it stings. Sports writer Paul Lukas shared his frustration with the situation in this post on his Uni-Watch blog recently. Lukas had been excited about an opportunity for an ongoing gig, then didn’t hear back from the editor, followed up and still didn’t hear back. Things went south from there. In a way, relationships with editors are like dating someone – you might be a lot more into them than they are in you. For a lot of different…

    14 Jul 2014 | 1:00 pm
    The lead is one of the basic building blocks of writing, and now more than ever, freelancers need to know how to write a lead if they want to land work. A lead is your first chance to hook someone into clicking through and reading your entire story. If you’re writing for websites, the lead might be the only part of your story that shows up on the front page, other than the headline, so it’s got to be good enough to entice readers to want more. In  fact, that’s the perfect definition of a lead – a snippet of information that turns readers into Oliver Twist, asking for…

When I started, I had no idea that over the years other bloggers would be inspired to take the same challenge. They have – hundreds of them. Some have used the WordCount Blogathon to launch a blog or revive a dormant one, improve their prose for other types of writing, and find work as paid bloggers.

Longform is the au courant name for feature stories, specifically longer features and narrative nonfiction that borrows heavily from fiction writing and can run 5,000 words, 10,000 words or longer. Wright wrote Going Clear, an exquisitely detailed biography of L. Ron Hubband and the origins and modern day workings of Scientology, which followers call a religion and former members and…

I’m wondering if people in the valley would be interested in having an editorial type of site where everyone can have their say about stuff? Even allow advertising to some extent?

    In order for someone to open an e-mail and to be interested in its content, you need a subject line that is eye-catching and one that will grab your attention. Knowing what to put in your subject line is a cleverness you will develop over the years. However, it is imperative that you know the difference between good line openers and simply atrocious ones. Having a good subject line will ensure that someone will open your e-mail and that an opportunity you are looking for will not be in question. It is especially important for marketers, they deal with new clients all the time and they need…

    15 Jul 2014 | 9:22 am
    A few weeks ago, a friend told me he was thinking about quitting his job. He said it was because of communication breakdowns between him and his boss. Small moments of poor communication had snowballed into a deeper, gnawing frustration for my friend. I asked if he’d mentioned these moments to his boss. Maybe his boss had no idea these were problems in the first place. My friend acknowledged that this was most-likely true. But then he said this: “Even if I did speak up, I don’t think anything would change.” His words struck me. I had almost forgotten – I had felt the exact same way…

I glanced at its colorful exterior and quirky signage and wondered, “What’s the story there?” The wonderful thing about journalism is that it’s a professional excuse to be nosy. I contacted the bar owner, Jim Oppedisano, et voilà! Our newest story for The Distance takes you inside the Hala Kahiki, a tiki bar established nearly 50 years ago by a family that’s never traveled west of California. One of the many fascinating things about the Hala Kahiki is that its…

Most people came up, said hi, chatted a bit, bought a book, shook hands, and then moved on. But one guy came up, put a laptop-like device on the table, unhinged it, spun one side around to me, flipped up a little screen, and then did the same on his side with his half of the device. It took about 10 seconds to set up. Then he started typing. The screen was split in two horizontally. At the top was what he was typing. On the bottom was what…

    Buying a franchise can be a very smart decision for entrepreneurs. Instead of building a business from scratch, you get access to the brand recognition and marketing clout of a more established business, as well as a template for running the franchise profitably.But it’s also possible to lose a lot of money if you rush in and buy without fully understanding what you’re getting into. The salespeople might make a franchise sound like a rock-solid investment opportunity, but remember that it’s their job to make it sound that way. Your job is to do the necessary research so that you can…

    You could argue that I’m a few years late to the trend of using a standing desk for my freelance home office. The truth is that I’ve been very happy with my antique architect’s drafting table (bought dirt cheap at a yard sale) for more than ten years. I didn’t want to abandon it, I didn’t want to have to buy another monitor, and I couldn’t stomach the idea of having another piece of furniture. After doing a bit of research, I came to the conclusion what I *really* needed was an adjustable standing desk—which seemed to offer the best of both worlds by…

This new Shared Parental Leave system is to allow parents and adopters more flexibility in how they care for their child during the first year after birth / adoption. Eligible mothers and fathers will be able to share up to 50 weeks’ leave (52 weeks less 2 weeks compulsory maternity leave) to care for their child – less the period that the mother has spent on maternity leave; and share up to 37 weeks’ shared parental pay (39 weeks less 2…
  • Freelancer mortgage application checklist: everything you need to provide

    Jon Norris
    22 Jul 2014 | 2:00 am
    Getting a mortgage as a freelancer can be mightily tricky. Banks look for one thing when lending – regularity – and unfortunately that’s one thing often missing from a freelancer’s financials. There is hope though. Some providers – like Halifax – have started easing up their rules or, at the very least, making the application process more understandable. What you need to provide for a self-employed mortgage application is now more-or-less the same no matter who you borrow from. We’ve had a word with Mortgage Medics, who’ve provided us with a…

    Many new freelancers and contractors may be vaguely aware of IR35, but not know when and where it applies. Before getting too intimate with the ins and outs of the IR35 legislation, the first step is to know if IR35 is even relevant to your situation. We give you more details about IR35 at the end of this article… Broadly speaking, there are three different legal structures under which a freelancer may work: 1.

    Having been involved in an identity theft scam on Elance, I’ve since learnt a few things about the risks of using these freelance marketplaces. Are the risks avoidable? That’s for you to decide. I’m going to be rather critical of these websites, but I must stress that plenty of people love them. Anyway, here are the risks that I’m aware of. Tricksters and conmen Freelance marketplaces are theoretically brilliant, because they can bring you work from the four corners of the Earth. But the global, anonymous nature of the network also has downsides. Namely, it’s incredibly easy…

    When you’re a freelancer, one of the hardest things to do is pitch your services to a large customer.   You are a small fish in their big pond – why would you ever be considered against the big players who can offer the advantages of big-brand financial stability, big teams of developers, and big processes? Put it another way…. Would YOU trust ME (a small individual freelancer) to build your new house for you? No?   That’s because you don’t know me, and you imagine (quite rightly) that one man is going to struggle with the size of the project. All those bricks! What about…

    When I was studying at University, a professor of Time (yes, that was really his title) said to the class “the difference between winners and losers in life is not chance, or luck, or determination, but what you do with the gaps between things”.   His theory was that in-between all the building bricks of our lives (the big chunks of work, and sales, entertainment, eating, sleeping and sex) was the small gaps – the cement between the bricks. These gaps are the 5 minutes here and there between the big events.   They may be waiting in a queue, waiting for a meeting to start, standing…

It only lasted 30 minutes, but the message was so strong, I just had to share the revelation with as many people as possible. It went something like this… If you use outbound marketing (mail shots, advertisements, email campaigns, cold calling and the like) then your marketing is effectively a dart.  You are throwing your ‘sales’ darts out into the world, in the hope that one of those darts will hit a dartboard.  But your customers are not dartboards.

    A lot of freelance writers have asked me how I get assignments. The answer is simple, but it’s admittedly scary: Just ask. As a writer, we fall in love with our words. We need a certain amount of ego that makes us believe, “Hey, what I have to say is important–important enough that people should stop what they are doing and listen to me.” This ego, unfortunately, also means that we can take ourselves too seriously, or think too highly of ourselves. In the real world, this means we don’t put ourselves out there as often as we should. Admittedly, it’s scary…
