Right now, the online
world is literally begging for writers. People that can
tap out a few words - providing content for the millions
of sites out there.
You don't have to have a lot of experience, you just
have to be able to piece together a few simple sentences
- and submit them to the SECRET ONLINE WRITING MARKETS
that most people have absolutely NO idea about.

Just when you really need it to work, the computer has a
hissy fit. <sigh>
I've been fighting with my computer for several days, and I'm not
After days of stop-starting, my computer finally gasped what seemed
to be its last breath and all went quiet. Alan (hubby) was away, I
am technically challenged, and it was all very frustrating.
It took more than a day for Alan to get the computer back up and
running after he got home. Three days without a computer just isn't
my cup of tea...
I had intended to get this newsletter finished and out
several days ago. I even had Cheryl Malandrinos send her article
early. Because of the computer issues I've had,
that didn't happen. (Best laid plans and all that stuff.)
So big apologies for the lateness of this issue.
Believe it or not, I'm still getting requests for copywriting
quotes, and have landed some copywriting jobs in the last couple of
weeks. Not exactly
what I want right now - what with shopping, school holidays etc -
but I'm not about to knock back work.
Luckily it was all finished before the computer decided it needed a
I don't want this newsletter to bog you down, so this email today is
full of fr.eebies. Heaps of them!
I'll start off by giving you MY gift. It's a pdf download of scores
of Christmas gift ideas - some unusual, others entirely unique, and
some, well, download it and find out:
I don't think I told you about my fr.ee craft sheet? If you're into
handcrafts, I think you'll like this. Grab it here:
Next on the list is a video from Santa. I still find it hard to
believe this is free, but it truly is:
(It's great fun to create one for the adults too!)
If you loved the Muppets, you'll love these singing puppets:
It's very cute - type in any Christmas song and see what the little
puppets do. Also, type in any non-Christmas song; I'm sure you'll
get a kick out of the response. One of the funniest I typed in was
Jingle Bell Rock.
Do you get sick of receiving the same ol' e-cards all the time? This
one is totally different, and features whomever you want it to
feature! Upload photos of yourself, family members, friends, or
others you want to feature, and you'll have a very unique card to
http://elfyourself.jibjab.com/ (http://www.jibjab.com is great for any time
of the year.)
Here's a handcrafted Angel table decoration you can make for
virtually nothing. All you need are some paper plates and gift
ribbons for decoration.
When you go to that website you'll find the instructions for many
other Christmas crafts. (And all at no cost.)
So... now you've got tons of freebies to keep you and the kiddies
occupied for the holidays!
Now for this issue....
Sadly, we tend to dwell on
the negatives and overlook the positives.
Cheryl Malandrinos has
written an article that should get you thinking more about what
you've achieved, than the things you haven't achieved.
Finally, but certainly not least, have a great Christmas
[FIRSTNAME], and a happy and safe New Year.
As always, there will only be one issue in
January, and it will arrive around the 15th - but don't hold
me to that!)
Winners of the contest should be announced in
the next issue.
Okay, that's it from me - time to sit
back and enjoy this issue.
Til next time…
p.s. If you've emailed me in the last few days and had no
response, please resend!

Your Writing Year in Review –
Find the Positives
Copyright Cheryl C. Malandrinos - All
Maya Angelou once said, “No man can know where he is
going unless he knows exactly where he has been and
exactly how he has arrived at this present place.”
This is excellent advice, but often when considering
where we’ve been on our writing journey we focus on what
we didn’t get done rather than on what we did. This can
be detrimental to our self-esteem, kills our
productivity, and erodes any motivation to keep working
toward accomplishing our goals and fulfilling our
This year I put a challenge to my online writing group:
only discuss your year in a positive light. This meant
that no matter what they decided to share about their
writing, they had to focus on what they did
accomplish and how it is helping them mold the future.
Not only did our members enjoy looking back on their
year in a positive way, they realized exactly just how
much they actually accomplished.
But what is positive thinking? How does it work? And how
can you use it to make a difference in your writing
What is Positive Thinking?
Positive thinking is more than just uttering a few happy
words and then allowing your fears and self-doubt to
take hold again.
Positive thinking is a mental attitude that, with
practice, allows you to have positive thoughts and uses
daily affirmations to help you to see a positive outcome
to almost every situation.
Judi Moreo, life coach and author of You Are More
Than Enough: Every Woman’s Guide to Purpose, Passion &
Power encourages her readers to make conscious
choices to think about themselves in a more positive
light. Moreo says we must stop criticizing ourselves and
demanding perfection in what we do, and we need to
change the mental pictures we have of ourselves.
Through the use of daily affirmations and by visualizing
our success, we can achieve desired results.
So how do we apply this concept to our writing goals?
Thinking Positive about our Year End Review
Since we know positive thinking must start somewhere,
why not start it with your Year End Review? This way
you can better position yourself for the year to come.
At the beginning of each year you write down a list of
goals that is then broken down into smaller more
manageable chunks. And finally into weekly or daily
