Sorry this newsletter is so late this month.  I only just scraped in!

Last weekend was my writing groups annual retreat, and as always, we had a ball.  We do a lot of very intensive writing work, loads of workshops, but lots of getting to know other members as well.

It's always way too short, as we only have a weekend away.

It's totally exhausting, but also extremely worthwhile.

I told you last time that I was reviewing Blogging for Writers - the brand-new ebook for writers.

I'm quite impressed with this book, but haven't finished my review.  Time has been pretty scarce recently, so I'm reviewing it bit by bit, as I can snatch a bit of time.

If you haven't bought a own copy yet, but have been contemplating it, take that step.  The book is very worthwhile, and I highly recommend it.  When my review is complete, I'll add it to the site.

In the meantime, remember there's a money-back guarantee so there's really no risk involved.

This month I have an article from Sean R Mize.  Sean discusses writing articles that will set you up as an expert.  I hope you enjoy it.

Til next time…

Motivational Quote:


Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.

—George Orwell

Please support Writer2Writer.com and the Writer to Writer newsletter by purchasing through advertising links in this newsletter. This keeps the newsletter and other information (such as fr*ee courses) at no charge to subscribers.  Many similar publications are now charging a yearly fee - I'm constantly fighting against that trend.  

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.

  Write Articles That Show You Are An Expert

Write Articles That Show You Are An Expert
By Sean R Mize

One of the biggest mistakes I see people making when writing articles is that they write really shallow articles that don't position them as an expert. I think it is because they don't want to give away their good stuff for free. But if you don't give away your good stuff for free, how will anyone ever know that your paid stuff is any good?

My belief is that if you write really good content, then people will want to buy your paid material because they will believe that if you free stuff is so good, then your paid stuff must be even better.

Then I hear the objection that if you write content that is really good, and give away what you know, then you won't have enough to teach that you will charge for. My thoughts on that is that if you don't know enough to write 20 articles on your topic and still have enough left to charge for, then you probably don't know enough to be charging for anything.
