Daily Writing Tip at Your Site

How would you like to have a brief writing tip on your own website—which automatically changes every day? 

If it sounds impossible, it’s not. It’s just as close as cutting and pasting a small amount of computer code. If you can cut and paste, then you can put this tool on your site.  I’ve attempted to create short (one or two sentence) writing tips which will be applicable to all types of writing. The date and the tip automatically update each day.  If you have a website or a blog, it’s easy to paste this code into your blog. If you want to see it, check out The Writing Life—and look in my sidebar (the right-hand column).  The tool has 31 tips but will soon expand to additional tips. I’d love for you to use it and my hope is that it will help many people.

Book-Proposals-That-Sell-coAs I mentioned over a week ago, I chatted for two hours at the Institute of Children’s Literature website about book proposals.  I was typing and teaching as fast as I could go during this session.  Now the transcript is available and it’s eleven pages. I hope you will check it out and find it as useful information for your own writing.

Finally, on National Author’s Day, November 1, I did an early morning radio interview with Scott and Lorri (Mornings with Scott and Lorri on Sirius). We talked about Book Proposals That Sell. This interview is stored in a podcast format and available for you to download.

OK, this entry includes three resources. I’m eager for others to use the Writing Tip of the Day. If you receive this email via feedblitz, then please forward it on to your writing group or your friends.  I hope it will spread like wildfire across the Internet to help many people.

I'm not nearly as prolific with it as I probably should be. Jerome -- I recently finished your book and plan to review it for TitleTrakk.com. I'll send you a link when it's up.

Hi Terry, I would really like to add your writing tip to my blog but here in Australia we format our date like this: day/month/year. So my Australian readers would read it as if today's writing tip was for 11th April. Is this problem fixable?

Hi Terry,

Thanks so much for providing this for people to use! I'd wanted to add writing tips to my blog site, but you've already made it so easy and informative, I don't have to do a thing.
