#12 Books are so much fun!

Books! As I said in Blog #11, I’ve been directing my energies into writing books rather than articles and blog posts. The day before Thanksgiving and just in time for the holiday shopping season, I launched my third book, “The Problem with Men” and no, it’s not a 20-volume set! It’s based on a movie […]

#11 My New Endeavor

I’m sorry I haven’t added any new posts lately, but I’ve been working on a new endeavor ~ actually, two new endeavors, if I’m going to be perfectly honest. I enjoy reading fiction, but my published articles to date have all been non-fiction. I decided to spread my wings and make the transition! I now have a […]

#10 Good Ideas…

I feel like doing something a bit different today. I’m going to introduce you to a small slice of the idyllic life I lead in Cotacachi, Ecuador. No more 9 to 5 for me! Those who’ve read my “About Beverley” page, know that I spend much of my time in Cotacachi, Ecuador, a small, rural village high in […]

#9 Words that Confuse

  The English language contains many words that can easily confuse us. But as a writer, you should make the effort to learn how and when to use which words. If you can’t seem to commit them all to memory, a chart hanging near your desk would be useful. Or you could create a list on your […]

How do you make your writing so easy to read and understand?” First of all, Judy, thank you for your comment and your question! Since Judy […]

#6 Story with Human Interest

Story with Human Interest Tips on How to Write a Human Interest Story Although newspapers run both press releases and human interest stories (among other types of articles, of course), a human interest article differs from a press release in several important ways. A press release usually delivers just the facts, using few-to-no adjectives or […]

#5 Emails and Job Apps

Emails and Job Apps Today I’m going to veer off in a different direction than I’ve taken with my other posts, addressing a particular type of email. In this day and age of electronic this and e-that, emailed resumes, job applications, and cover letters are a fact of life. Hopefully, this will help job seekers of […]

#4 Writer Distractions

Writer Procrastination and Distractions People have asked me how I find the time to write. How, as a writer, do I deal with procrastination and distractions that keep me from the keyboard? Well, it’s like anything else in life that you feel is important ~ you make the time. Maybe you get up at 5:00a.m. to exercise before going […]

#3 Focus, Focus, Focus

Focus, Focus, Focus If you’re new to writing articles for submission, you may want to focus on a topic you’re very familiar with. If you’d rather SCUBA dive than eat, write about diving…. If you go horseback riding at every occasion, write about horses or riding… If you’re a coffee enthusiast, write about coffee… You get the drift. […]
