Just wanted to take the opportunity to wish all my readers a Very Merry Christmas!
Even if you don’t celebrate the religious festival, I hope you enjoy the festive period. Thank you for reading at least some of my blog posts this year, and contributing to some interesting discussions.
Naturally, many people at this time are fully occupied with family celebrations. If you have any time on your hands over the holiday period, though – or you just need a break from the festivities – you might like to check out Best Writing Forum, the new writers forum open to everyone that was launched last week by my old friend Karl Moore. Already there are some great discussions going on about writing, and other subjects too in the BWF Bar and Grill!
It’s free and only takes a few moments to join Best Writing Forum, so why not register now to be sure of getting the username you want? Don’t forget to introduce yourself on the Welcome board as well. You will be sure to receive a warm welcome 🙂
If you feel like doing some reading – maybe on your new Kindle or tablet – you may like to check out my post “Nine Top Ebooks About Writing That Are Free Today“. As far as I know, all these e-books are still free.
In addition, my low-cost Kindle e-book Three Great Techniques for Plotting Your Novel or Screenplay sets out some great methods for plotting your next blockbuster, while my illustrated humorous science-fiction novella The Festival on Lyris Five (also on Kindle) will keep you entertained and amused as Christmas dinner goes down!
To get your writing career off to the best possible start in 2018, you might like to sign up to this free ‘Introduction to Screenwriting’ course from FutureLearn starting in January, or the Start Writing Fiction course (also free) in March.
And if Santa brings you a bit of extra cash, here are links to some posts spotlighting high-quality resources I recommend for any aspiring writer…
Planner Publishing Profits – The guide from the prolific Amy Harrop reveals how you can cash in on the huge (and growing) market for planners by publishing and selling your own.
One Page Publishing Profits – This guide, also from Amy Harrop, reveals how to create one-page products that can be sold for profit or used for other purposes, e.g. getting people to sign up to your mailing list. Among other things, it covers cheat sheets, checklists and tip sheets.
Essential English for Authors – This is my downloadable course about bringing your writing up to a publishable standard in the shortest time possible.
Write Any Book in Under 28 Days – My top-selling writing course, which has been used by thousands of writers to plan and write a full-length book of their own.
Any of the above would be a great investment for your writing career in 2018.
Once again, I do hope you have a wonderful Christmas, and a happy and creative new year. Thank you for being a valued reader of Entrepreneur Writer.
