Yes, I know - late again!
I'll blame it on the copywriting jobs I've just
finished, but in reality there have been several factors, not the
least of which is filling in for my site manager who resigned, and
teaching hubby how to take over this complicated and time consuming
So please let me off the hook! I am
catching up, and only a few days late this time around. <g>

I'm extremely happy with each and
every one of them - it makes all the hard work very worthwhile. (You
can see them here)
I have a few projects
that I hope to finish soon, and expect to tell you about
them in the next newsletter. As you know, my aim is to
help as many writers as possible earn a decent income
from their writing, and the projects I mentioned are no
different. Look out for them soon!
Quick reminder: The Writer2Writer forum
is up and running. There are a handful of posts there, but not
many. Those of us frequenting the forum can hear our echoes! This is your forum -
so please use it as much as possible. I want this to be a
resource for as many people as it can.
Okay, time to move onto the current issue!

Karolina Blaha-Black - All Rights Reserved
Several years ago, I hit
a serious rut in my writing. I didn’t have any good ideas, I was getting
rejection after rejection, my queries lacked the necessary chutzpah, and
after a while I didn’t even feel I needed to write ever again, because I
felt that I wasn’t talented enough. I realized that I needed a booster shot,
something that would get me on the path to writerdom again. I decided to
take the next logical step and take an online writing course.
I knew that online
classes are a good way to sharpen up on what’s new in the industry and how
to get acceptance letters again. I decided to take a course on how to Break
into Magazine Writing at a local university, which offered courses from
business to travel writing and everything in between.
The class lasted several
weeks and consisted of series of online lectures, exercises, group
discussions, and of course, homework. The overall experience was great. Not
only did the instructor answered all my questions, I found out that I could
learn from the other students as well. There were not only unpublished
writers in our class, but also seasoned pros and/or published writers like
me that had hit a low in their career. The online class provided just the
right spark to get their creativity flowing again.
