is distributed to 6,374 writers!)
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.

Welcome to all new subscribers.
I am soooo sorry for the lateness
of this issue. I have been snowed under, I have been sick, and I am
now way behind.
Because this issue is so late, it will be
the only one for March. It's impossible to squeeze another one
in this month.
Did you grab your fr.ee report
about writer's websites last month? If not,

I forgot to remove the discount on Outside the Square
Fiction Workshop, so this is your last chance to get it at the
discounted rate. I will remove it in approximately 48 hours (I'll
write myself a reminder this time!)
so go and grab it now if you're interested.
As a reminder, the price has been
reduced by 25%, saving you $6-74. (This is definitely your last
If you've been with me awhile, you'll have no doubt heard about my
friend Brian McElroy. From time to time Brian lets me know
about anything special he has going on that would be of interest to
Today he sent an email about a
copywriting video he's produced. What's even better is
it's totally fr.ee.
Sell.ing services is one of the easiest ways to make mo.ney on the
internet, and if making mo.ney by sell.ing services is your goal,
you need to check this out. Make sure you watch the whole video
because Brian reveals some interesting information near the end (and
I don't want you to miss it).
If you're thinking you can't do that,
watch the video and then decide. You owe it to yourself.
Now to something a little more serious. The Writer2Writer
forum has again been bombarded by spa.mmers for the third time in as
many weeks. In fact, this is the ONLY activity that can be
found on the forum - and this has been the case for many, many
With that in mind, and the number of hours I've had to spend to rid
the forum of the (more than 3,000) spa..m comments, I've decided to
remove it. It simply doesn't make sense to spend more than a
day each time the forum is flooded with disgusting comments, when
those people who it was meant to help are not using it.
That being the case, I've removed the forum.
Okay, this issue we have a terrific article from Judy Bagshaw which
talks about what to do when your muse goes AWOL. Read Judy's
article if you want to chase that muse demon away - whether you
write romance, or something else entirely.
That's it from me [FIRSTNAME] - time
to sit back and enjoy this issue.
Til next time…
p.s. Don't forget to grab your fre.e report.

When Your Writing Muse
ŠJudy Bagshaw - All Rights
As writers we all have those times when it seems as if
our idea well has gone dry, our creative muscle has
atrophied, and our muse has gone AWOL. And those times
can be frustrating. We live in an increasingly busy
world, our lives filled with stresses of one kind or
another. Many of us have multiple demands on our time,
so it’s no wonder that we hit these walls every now and
But if/when it does happen it’s no good throwing up our
hands and accepting that our muse is a fickle wench and
is in control of the situation. On the contrary, there
are many ways that you can entice her to return to
That being said, priming the creative pump will be
different for everyone. What works for me, will not
necessarily work for you. You need to try a variety of
approaches and find that magic formula that returns you
to full writing force.
Music can be a powerful stimulator of the imagination. A
writing colleague of mine is a big advocate of blending
music with her writing. She creates playlists for each
WIP, and often has specific songs attached to specific
characters. She plays this music while writing and the
music helps keep her in the world she’s creating. She
has specific genres of music that energize her, so will
sometimes just crank up the tunes and dance. The burst
of adrenalin will often bring on a spurt of writing.
If you have been working hard on a specific project, you
may need to step away for a little while and focus on an
entirely different activity. For example, spend an
afternoon baking or cooking. It can be very creative,
and it frees the mind for a while. You can go back to
your manuscript refreshed, and the bonus is your house
likely smells really yummy!
Do something else that taps directly into that creative
side of yourself. Paint or draw or sculpt. Get out your
sewing machine. Dabble in making some jewelry. Muck
about with your craft supplies. Play the piano or
guitar. You are exercising the same muscles used for
your writing, but are not under pressure for the moment
to be producing on the page.

will save you from making many of the common
mistakes that writers make, letting you jumpstart your career.
It will also answer
questions you have, and questions you may not know to ask.
