I’ve spent the last two weeks reading about writing. I have finished The Glass Castle, a memoir by Jeannette Walls. Since I’ve got a plan to write my father’s story, I wanted to read different types of memoirs. I also completed a humorous type of memoir/essay by Celia Rivenbark, called Bless Your Heart, Tramp.
I am currently reading The Tao of Martha by Jen Lancaster, which is also a humorous memoir. I’ve also been reading Stephen King’s On Writing, A Memoir of the Craft. I am almost finished with Strunk and White’s “Elements of Style.”
I also had my third article go live on the SheKnows, Blogher website last week. sheknows.com/love-and-sex/articles/1112799/decades-later-i-still-fondly-remember-my-tragic-romance … http://Blogher.com
I received a request for content curation samples from Twitter. I also went to DC for my day job as a contracting specialist and while there, I continued to research analytics, content curation, and write!
I really want to learn several things right away: how to get pictures on my tweets and website! This will really increase traffic, however I have learned that there are photos out there on the web that are free and those that are not! Some you must attribute to the source (and rightly so). I haven’t felt 100% comfortable about just putting pictures on my site and not do so correctly!
I’ll start scheduling my posts for regularity since my research shows that my audience is expect me to show up! That’s important! I hope my progress as a writer helps you to be inspired and informed. It’s a lot of work, but it is lots of fun too! No, I haven’t made any money to date, but that will come in time!
Making the most of every day!
