Fiction Genres: Sub-Genres in Romance
Before you write your short story or novel, choose a genre, so that you know that there’s an audience for your project. A genre is basically just a category.  I’ve been asked about genres for romance, so here’s a graphic which will help:

Planning your fiction is easier when you think in scenes
A scene is defined as a unit of action; the operative word being ACTION. Something happens in a scene. If nothing much happens, it’s not a scene.

Let's look at the number of scenes you need for a short story, novella and novel. Once you know the number of scenes you can plan the bare bones of your story in a couple of minutes:

Decisions, decisions. You want to write romance fiction, but...
I've had lots of questions about getting started with romance. Briefly, what you can read with pleasure, you can usually write:

New Adult is currently the hottest genre in romance; they sell an incredible amount. Indie authors have discovered New Adult, and rule in it.

Can you write it? Why not download some freebies from Amazon, and find out?

Making the switch from nonfiction, to fiction
Freelancers have been asking me whether nonfiction writers can write fiction, specifically romance fiction:

In a nutshell, if you can read it with enjoyment, you can write it. Practice on short stories.

Professional writers' dilemma: fiction or nonfiction?
Writers have asked whether they can write both fiction and nonfiction ebooks. Of course you can.

Some things to consider: your publishing catalog, and your pen names. Pen names are useful for branding, and while you can use your own name for nonfiction, consider using pen names in fiction to brand yourself:

You're a professional writer. Can you write fiction?
It's easier than you think. You just let your imagination out to play. 

And practice. You'll be amazed that making stuff up helps your nonfiction writing:

If you've got a Typepad blog, and it's down, here's why
Typepad's been under an on-and-off DDOS attack for the past few days. By criminals who want money.

Want to become a professional blogger?
There's a universe of blogging gigs open to you... if you know how to get them. These jobs are never advertised. You may need to step out of your comfort zone a little, but the rewards are enormous.

Start by making proposals to companies which might hire you -- few writers/ bloggers use proposals: they're a powerful tool.
