Your Own Worst Enemy?
June 20th, 2008 by Administrator
Laura Spencer, a freelance writer who lives here in North Texas same as I do, but whom I have unfortunately not had the pleasure of meeting, wrote this post called, “Are You Your Own Bully?” on the great B5 Media blog she authors called Freelance Folder.
I TOTALLY agree with Laura’s observations, writers are most likely among the most self-critical and introspective of any other profession. Laura has some really good advice for us about how to stop being so negative about ourselves and the things we tell ourselves. Be sure to read that post.
But I have another purpose for bringing up Laura Spencer, whose personal writing blog, Writing Thoughts, has offered me several years of tips and sound advice on writing. I am always trying, as one of the perfectionist in the above mentioned article would do, to improve my writing and blogging skills, so I asked for advice from the Master at my new favorite business blog, Sta.rtup.Biz and he gave me some on target tips.
He used Laura’s B5Media blog, Freelancing Folder, as an example of a good freelance writing blog to emulate. I don’t know what Laura will think about when she reads this, but it is words like that which make this job so worthwhile to me, or at least hearing them helps me to remember the reason I started writing in the first place, and that I am good at it, which she is!
Man, am I ever long winded!
