I notice that your publication is called Writing Guru. That’s why I’m contacting you to apply to be a writer. I’m sure you get a lot of applications from wannabe writers and I may fit into that well-populated category. To show you why you should consider me over those other wannabes, below please find the […]

Want To Be a Podcaster

Once upon a time there was a wannabe podcaster. It doesn’t matter whether you insert he or she or perhaps even me. Wannabe was as far as it had gotten so far. Every day our wanna be podcaster connected the microphone to the mixer and plugged that into the computer, with the recording software ready […]

Want To Be A Real Writer?

I have heard that a lot, although those from whom I hear it usually put it as if they are already a real writer. They just haven’t found the time to actually write. They say things like, “When I find the time, I’ll get around to writing my novel.” It’s as if they already have […]

Prompts03: When I’m Alone I Feel

Thanks for joining me on this writing journey. The Prompts app for my iPhone has generated yet another engaging prompt. When I’m alone, I feel…. I hope you choose to play along. How will you finish the sentence? My immediate response is, “When I’m alone, I feel peaceful. The movie in my mind finds me […]

Prompts02: I Spend A Lot Of Time Thinking About…

As is true for many if not most bloggers and podcasters, I give a lot of thought and energy to coming up with new and hopefully interesting content. I keep hearing that content is king, and perhaps it is. My problem is that I struggle with coming up with viable candidates to wear the crown. […]

Prompts: An iPhone App For Hopeful Writers

Writing is easy. The challenge is figuring out what to write about. Actually, that is not quite true. For example, I know I’m not going to write about ancient history or current fashions. I know I am going to write about people, what they do, how they do it, why they do it or something […]

Pro Tip For Writers And Public Speakers
