Penelope's curator insight, June 26, 5:52 PM

 

Every author needs to connect to their readers, and readers love to get acquainted with their favorite authors. A fun and simple way to do this? A podcast!

 

Easier said than done, right? Well, according to this author it is easy. Called a walking podcast, you simply walk--and talk! Use your phone, digital camera, or voice recorder. You create in 5 or 10 minutes. Upload to your website in only 5-10 minutes. Voila! Very simple.

 

Your readers will get to know you, and you'll get fit at the same time.

Plotting stories can be quite a conundrum for many writers. Sometimes the best answer is also the simplest. Hence, this article on the plotting methods of Sir Jurassic Park, Michael Crichton.

 

Reading this article made me want to whack my noggin a few times, with an accompanying, Duh! Instead, I think I'll whip out my molding copy of Scrivener, and use the notecard feature--or maybe just buy a stack of 'em for a buck.

 

If you're puzzling about plotting, this is the article for you. Excellent and very doable advice!

More often than not, a film adaptation doesn't live up to the standards of a well-written book. There have been a few occasions, however, when a movie actually turns out better than its literary predecessor.

Sometimes the simplest advice is the best. Set up a system for your writing, so you can start making $$ from it!

 

Your system, according to this writer, should be a 25/50/25 rule. This will allow you to make money from the small stuff, while continually aspiring for a bigger slice of the writing pie.

 

The first 25: small projects

The 50: Challenging projects

The next 25: Almost impossible

Penelope's curator insight, June 4, 8:52 PM

 

Ghostwriting is intriguing to many, especially when it was discovered that books by Blockbuster author, James Patterson, have been ghostwritten.

 

This is a fantastic article for anyone thinking of breaking into this line of work. The author gives us some very doable steps.

 

For instance:

 

#1 What is the Book About? (Collaborate with the author)

#2 Collect Written and Recorded Materials

#3 Record Interviews

 

There are five more, so read the article, and see if ghostwriting could be a career move in your future.
