Sarah McElrath's curator insight, February 1, 2013 6:51 AM

Interesting article. This would eplain why so many individuals now thought to be creative were not considered so during their lifetime. Still, if something is useful to you--solves a problem for you in a unique way--is that not still creative? The "useful" part also troubles me a bit. Makes for good discussions.

How to Self-Publish a Bestseller: Publishing 3.0

How to Self-Publish a Bestseller: Publishing 3.0 | Litteris | Scoop.it

"I strongly believe everyone reading this blog has the content inside of them to write a book. If you want to stand out in a world of content, you need to underline your expertise. Publishing a book is not just putting your thoughts on a blog post. It’s an event. It shows your best curated thoughts and it shows customers, clients, investors, friends and lovers what the most important things on your mind are right now.

Unfortunately, most people suck at it. I’ve largely sucked at it. I’ve published 11 books — five with traditional publishers and six that are self-published.

I’ve written before about publishing and self-publishing. But mostly it’s been how I lost money on every book I’ve written. This is the first time I can say I’ve published a good selling book and here is what I did.

 

The distinction now is no longer between “traditional publishing” versus “self-publishing.” The distinction now is between professional versus unprofessional publishing. My first 10 books were done unprofessionally. Even the ones with the big publishing houses. They will probably hate me now. I hope not. I really like the people I worked with at these publishers.


I hope that everyone self-publishes. The benefits are enormous:"

James Altucher's advice is always chock-full of yummy little morsels to tuck away for future use. Freely sharing his own experiences, he makes a solid case for self-publishing and gives us some out-of-the box marketing techniques. Loved this read.

A Quick Guide to Beta Reader Etiquette - Helping Writers Become Authors

A Quick Guide to Beta Reader Etiquette - Helping Writers Become Authors | Litteris | Scoop.it
Writers love their beta readers. But let’s be honest. Beta readers also kinda drive us crazy. Some of them are perfection: as polite, professional, and talented as any in-house editor. But others… well, let’s just say their lack of tact and their questionable knowledge of the craft can sometimes leave us howling in frustration. Why isn’t there a manual for beta reader etiquette–for how beta readers should conduct themselves and how writers, in turn, should respond?

janlgordon's curator insight, August 26, 12:21 AM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Alice Elliott because it shows how to write articles from the readers' point of view.

 

Create content that your audience wants to read.

 

Improve Your Subscriber Rate With the Target Market in Mind

 

A blog post that is focused more on the writer will not get much attention. I agree that knowing who your readers are and crafting a message just for them can go a long way.

 

Elliot shows how your business can change your content strategy that appeals to the needs and desires of your community.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Successful blog posts provide a solution to what the readers want. This takes sufficient research and a unique style of writing that is in your own voice.

 

  • Ask whether your niche is both popular and clear to your community. Offer something special that goes beyond what other blogs are publishing.

 

  • Improve the readability of your blog with a good design and layout that is not confusing. Make it easy to read and appealing to your readers.

Libraries matter: 18 fantastic library infographics

Libraries matter: 18 fantastic library infographics | Litteris | Scoop.it

"It’s great that such infographics are created. Infographics are a fantastic way to draw attention of online users, and give facts not only in a more digestible, but also highly entertaining way.


Many people still perceive libraries as awesome-looking magical places, full of a scent of old paper. We associate libraries with the past and with the analog world – the world that doesn’t fit into the broadband internet connection.

It’s not true (and I think it never was). More and more libraries lend electronic books, become information hubs, but most importantly, media creation centers.

These infographics change the perspective. They show the beautiful book temples are filled not only with the past, but also with the future."

How can you organize your life as a writer so you can spend more time writing?

What’s the best way to manage writing alongside other projects?

Why is it so hard to balance the act of writing with the day-to-day demands of life?

I think you’ll agree most writers have to achieve more than write every day–we have to do things like plan our research, market our writing, find a quiet place to work.
