In this review / feature of Peter Bowerman's new commercial #freelancewriting course, Well-Fed Craft, you'll get some course background, find audio clips of my recent interview with Peter for my podcast, and get reviews not only from me (from the perspective of someone who teaches newer writers) but also from fellow freelancer, +Edward Beaman (to tell you what you can expect as a student).

This is a very rare exception to my rule against promoting third party courses. That's simply how much I trust and respect Peter. So check it out. If you want to kick off a more successful year freelancing, commercial writing is the place to be. And you won't find a better, or more practical, course to get you moving in the right direction.
Read two reviews of Peter Bowerman's Well-Fed Craft course on commercial freelance writing, and listen to podcast interview clips with Peter.

New Monday Motivation Series for Writers

To kick off my new Monday Motivation series for #writers , I share some examples of confidence boosters (and hits) from my own creative past with #writing  and music -- thanks to a conversation with +Paula Hendrickson. Then I look at a few common lies writers tell themselves because they're afraid (and what you should really think about instead).

Ends Tomorrow - Learn How to Write High-Paying Copywriting Projects from Peter Bowerman

Read the latest All Indie Writers newsletter for information on Peter Bowerman's Well-Fed Craft, his new course that teaches you the "how" behind writing high-paying #copywriting projects like white papers, case studies, and web copy.

http://us9.campaign-archive2.com/?u=414a063366e2453b427c0895d&id=006c30a238

The introductory offer ends tomorrow. So don't miss out. Be one of the first to take Peter's course. (I did, and I loved it. You can find my review linked in the newsletter.)

And as a bonus for All Indie Writers readers, Peter will make the course available via download if you'd like, so you don't have to wait (due to large file sizes, it's being delivered on custom flash drives so you don't have to worry about storage).

Outlining is one of many "tricks" that allows me to be a fairly prolific writer. In this post, I share my skeleton outline system for building up, or fleshing out, my #writing .

Here are 3 tricks I use when I get behind on big #writing  projects like my NaNoWriMo novels.

I'm off to a slow start with #NaNoWriMo  this year due to a late choice in topic (plus a major blog re-launch that happened on Nov. 1st). So I'll be using these this weekend as I try to get caught up -- Pomodoros, voice-to-text, and even an occasional mind game.
If you get behind on your NaNoWriMo word count goal, here are three tips to help you write more quickly and get back on track.
