Your Freelance Writing Career – The Importance of Routines

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

It’s much easier to take consistent action toward your career goals if you establish a regular routine.

If you have a full time day job and you’re trying to transition to full time freelance writing, right now you may be able to follow your routine just a few hours a day or maybe only a few hours per week. That’s okay. The main thing is to get a regular routine in place.

When you establish a routine, it’s also much easier to create your marketing plan and writing schedule every Sunday night or Monday morning. Then, when the work week starts on Monday, all you need to do is follow the actions you’ve set up in your routine.

For example, my weekly routine includes:

1. Working on a current work-in-progress. Generally, I set aside 1 hour every morning, first thing (before I do anything else), to work on a novel, short story, or other writing project that’s not under contract (it’s just something I’m passionate about writing).

2. Completing regular marketing tasks every weekday morning – this includes writing & sending out The Morning Nudge, checking and responding to emails, updating my blogs, scheduling events for the Working Writer’s Club, which I started several years ago, and posting information to the Working Writer’s Club site online.

3. Working on current writing assignments every weekday afternoon. Usually I have at least 3 or 4 writing assignments at any given time – with scattered deadlines. I allocate time every afternoon to work on each of these assignments.

4. Acquiring new assignments. Many times these days, new assignments and clients come to me. But I also spend time each week sending out queries and proposals to get new assignments and clients.

5. Coaching clients – I schedule one-on-one coaching sessions between all my other work. It’s nice to take a break from writing in the afternoon to talk to a client. I also enjoy talking to a client midmorning (after I’ve spent time on my current work-in-progress) before I get started on my marketing tasks for the day.

That’s pretty much the work routine I follow. I do these same actions day after day, week after week. Each of these actions is designed to take me closer and closer to achieving my 3 major writing/career goals for the year. I always have these 3 major goals before me during the day (on an index card or at the top of the page in my spiral notebook for my “to-do” list for the day), so when I’m tempted to get offtrack, I just look at my goals and remind myself of what I’m trying to achieve.

What does your work routine look like?

Have you established a routine yet?

If not, create one today, then just start following your routine to make it easier to be consistent in your efforts to reach your goals.

Try it!

Make Money Writing Crossword Puzzles: Seven Tips For Newbies

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

You might not realise it, but the crossword is still one of the most popular parts of many newspapers … with lots of people buying a copy for that reason alone. After the front and back page, the sport and the TV sections it's high up on the list of 'most read' pages. So there is a healthy demand for people to write and sell crossword puzzles.

This could be a great sideline opportunity for you. Especially good if you're a dedicated crossword puzzler. But you can try it even if you're not. You don't need to be especially good at English.

Here are seven tips on how to write crosswords:

1. Start by thinking of a theme for your puzzle. For example something like history, or geography, travel, film and TV or famous people etc. You don't necessarily have to reveal what your theme is to your readers. But it will make it much easier to come up with words and clues.

2. Now write a long list of words which relate to your theme. At least 25 or 30 to start with. Everything you can think of. This will be your 'word bank', to draw words from for your puzzle. (But you don't necessarily need to use them all.)

3. Include both long and short words … but don't have many words under four letters. Try and choose words which include lots of 'often used' letters … such as the vowels A, E, I, O, U plus S, T, L, M, N … which will be easier to fit together. Avoid too many words that use Z, Q and X for the same reason!

4. Now get some graph paper and a pencil. Pick five or six of the longer words from your list and try and link them together in the center of the page, starting with a horizontal. Now try to fit in the smaller words around them. Build up your grid from there. Finish off by filling in the spaces with a blank.

5. Once your grid is complete number every square that contains the first letter of a word. Divide these into two lists, one of 'Across' words and another of 'Down' words.

6. Now the fun begins! The next stage is to create a clue for each word. Most crosswords either have simple clues or cryptic clues – don't mix both types in the same crossword.

7. A thesaurus is a really handy way of finding clue ideas for crosswords. You can either buy one or find one free online. Just look up whatever your clue is and get a list of words which mean something similar and which could be the basis of your clue.

If you're into crossword puzzling you might know that you can actually get computer programs to help you create and / or solve crossword puzzles. You can use these if you wish (although the good ones tend to be quite expensive). Also, some buyers prefer crossword puzzles that haven't been created by a computer – so always check first.

Now to selling crossword puzzles: Most magazines and lots of magazines have crossword puzzles and might be interested in buying your puzzles. Write to them and ask. Start with smaller publications … not with The Times and so on!

Larger newspapers and magazines tend to have regular, in-house crossword compilers. But don't be put off approaching those who do … they still buy puzzles from freelancers sometimes. And this could be your foot in the door to get a job as in-house compiler in future.

One more tip when compiling puzzles for newspapers: They tend to have a fixed grid size which they're very reluctant to change. It's also sometimes the case that the grid pattern is EXACTLY the same with every crossword, just rotated a different way or a mirror image and so on. So be sure to check some back issues before you write specifically for that publication.

There are also some puzzle agencies which write crossword puzzles for selling on to the publishing industry. Here's one you could take a look at: Clarity Media at http://www.clarity-media.co.uk (Their website also has lots of useful info. About puzzling.)

Another place to sell your crossword puzzles is puzzle book publishers. They often have a need for hundreds or crosswords a year.

Educational publishers also need crosswords for books and study aids which are created for children or use in schools.

How to Transcribe an Audio or Video File With Bad Sound Quality

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

How to Get the Best Out of Dodgy Audio

I have worked as a transcriptionist for the past eight years and have learned quite a few handy hints along the way on how to get the best from a poor quality piece of audio.

Here’s just a few:

· Turn it up! I use Express Scribe transcription software and there are many options for tuning poor quality audio. The first I try is the channel toolbar. Dictation audio often includes a floor threshold reading. Using the channel bar on Express Scribe, you can alter the dB (volume) of two channels within the audio. This can really help to make a speaker’s voice stand out. For extremely quiet, or distant speakers, a better option may be Extra Volume Boost within the Special Audio Processes menu. This can be used if the volume needs more power than the main controls give you. Extra Volume Boost increases volume by 10%.

· Fine Tune it! For extremely fuzzy sound, there are other Special Audio functions in the Express Scribe software. For fuzzy or muddy sounds, you can ‘Reduce Background Noise’ or use the ‘High Pass Filter’. Reducing the background noise should be your first option if the speaker is audible but possibly driving in a car, sitting in a cafe, or rustling papers whilst he dictates. In this function, the Express Scribe distinguishes sound by volume, so if the volume of background noise is almost equal to that of the dictation, using the High Pass Filter may be a better option. The High Pass Filter distinguishes sounds by pitch so here, only sounds above 450Hz are kept in the audio. This is a highly valuable tool for clearing up ‘muddy’ audio.

· Skip it. When you are typing a transcript and can’t hear a word, it’s very tempting to keep pressing that foot pedal and listening to that same word again and again. The truth is by doing this, you are actually making your job harder by taking the word out of context. Try noting the unclear and then listening to the end of the sentence, or even the next few sentences. Chances are that word may be repeated, and if not, you still increase your chances of deciphering it by considering, ‘What word is actually missing from this sentence?’

· Give it Time. Ever noticed that transcription seems to get easier midway into the audio? Sometimes it takes a while to get used to a speaker’s accent or to pick up jargon. If you find you’re getting a lot of unclears during the first five minutes or so of your audio, don’t get hung up on it. Note your [unclears] and carry on typing. You’ll most likely find when you go back to it later on, you will have adjusted to your speaker’s accent, pitch and style and will be able to catch that word a lot easier. Also, listening to one word again and again can give you a type of mental block. It can be helpful just to take a break by finishing your typing and then going back with a clear mind.

· Share it. If you have someone to hand, get them to have a listen. Two heads is better than one and you’ll be surprised how effective this method is.

· Guess it. – Well, sort of. This tip tends to work well for industry specific jargon. If you think a word is a company name, product or industry specific term, it can be very worthwhile to simply type it phonetically into Google and see what comes up. We all know that if you use the Autocomplete function in Google, the search engine gives you suggestions of words. Watch those words as you type each letter and check if any seem right. If one does, click onto it and check the meaning to see if it makes sense within the context of your transcript. Alternatively, type your word, and see what spelling corrections Google comes up with. This method is brilliant for finding the correct spellings for medication when taking on medical work. Beware, however, that you do check the meaning, spelling, and relevance of the word, and also listen to it one more time in the audio, just to be sure.

So if you are offering transcription services, you can be sure that with these tips you can always get the best from any audio file.

Subjective Reality and the Law of Attraction

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Stop working so hard. Once you understand subjective reality, you will understand that you are the only consciousness, as in a lucid dream. You don’t have to work hard to have what you want. Simply do what you want and enjoy what you want to enjoy. This is how you enjoy the flow of abundance.

What is Subjective Reality?

Subjective reality is a point of view that claims that you are the one consciousness and that everyone and everything in your “life” is a projection of your consciousness. Tony Robbins has said that “nothing has any meaning but the meaning that you give it” for this reason. Steve Pavlina clarifies, “You are the only thinker in this Universe.”

The proponents of objective reality have trouble explaining the Law of Attraction and the “good luck” that some people have and the “bad luck” that others have. A subjective reality perspective makes it so simple – these are characters you are exploring, and situations you have created.

Ho’oponopono insists that you take complete responsibility for all conflict, all disease and everything in your life and your awareness. This only makes sense from a subjective reality perspective. And, once you do this, you are able to heal the “other people” in your life.

Along these lines, it makes no sense to feel anger or fear of anyone else because they are only characters you have created to experience love or conflict, joy or distress, boredom or excitement, and so forth. You are your Avatar. You are the character in your own video game. When you want to go into a different area, you simply go there.

How Does the Law of Attraction Fit with Subjective Reality?

Once we accept Subjective Reality, and the idea that we are the sole consciousness responsible for everything in our lives, it is obvious that as soon as we want to change this game, we only have to intend it and see that it is done.

In a video game, or a lucid dream, the changes are almost instantaneous. In the 3rd dimension physical reality, things are denser and change takes a little longer. The real slowdown is when we are confused by our Egoic mind’s belief in objective reality and by some rules we learned as a child.

Let all the rules go. Prepare for the 4th dimension by enjoying the game that you created. And, if you aren’t currently enjoying it, please, change it to something you would like better.

How Ghostwriter Services Can Make You a Millionaire

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

It would be good to know who a ghostwriter is. The name suggests someone whom you don’t see and that person can generate content. In short, a ghostwriter is someone you hire to generate content on various topics, but mainly for websites. Ghostwriters have dedicated their time to create and generate information for websites and other publications with the aim of marketing your products or making you know to a large audience.

Ghostwriters can also be categorized as website writers as what they do is to write about your site. They generate content according to the information you give them. They have to look for relevant keywords and keyword phrases that deal with your website or the products that you are trying to advertise. One thing that many people don’t know is that with the internet, people HATE to be advertised to. This is because whenever anyone is coming to the internet to use search engines they are coming to look for information. The issue of giving them good looking banners, flash advertisements and many pop ups is an irritation to them. If someone, for example, is looking for soccer, they want information on soccer; whatever information. What will irritate them is when you begin advertising to them soccer products. Well in some cases you may succeed, but it happens less than 10% of the times.

What people want when they come to your site is content, content and more content. And this is why you will find many websites not appearing tops in search engines. This is also because search engines are looking to satisfy their users by giving them content! This is why ghostwriting services are of great help. If you have the relevant content on your website customers will be attracted to read. When they see they are getting the information they want, they will know that you are serious with what you are dealing in. This will make them buy your products and thus you will make your profits.

Just as a parting shot, to have high traffic that can generate for you millions of dollars, you have to present relevant content to your audience. Giving them relevant content will attract more people which will lead to a high conversion rate and then you will make your millions easily.

How to Get Started As a Freelance Journalist?

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

As always, getting started in any new career is best done by taking the advice of the experts. After all, you wouldn’t try to build a house without learning how to do it first would you? And freelance journalism is not different. However, if you feel you want to dive right in, read through the suggestions below and have fun.

What editors want

The most important points to remember when you are starting out as a freelance journalist are to write what editors want, how they want it. Sounds obvious doesn’t it, but you’d be surprised how many novice journalists believe they can write what they like, however they like, and have editors clamouring to publish it.

Unfortunately, freelance journalism does not work like that! So, first and foremost, you need to learn the rules.

Rule 1. Make sure you send it to the right publication

There is simply no point writing something before you’ve carried out thorough market research – you will be wasting your time. It is vital that you know what publications you are aiming your articles at because different publications:

• have different styles – some prefer the article to have lots of titles, short paragraphs and bullet points, allowing the reader to quickly skim the main points. Others require more academic styles with complex, detailed writing

• accept differing lengths of article – some accept articles that are 1000 words and above, others only accept shorter articles

• use different language – this depends on who the target audience of the publication is going to be. Obviously a magazine for the older generation will us entirely different language to one aimed at the teenage generation

Rule 2. Be current

Think about it. If you write an article about a general election but the election was two weeks ago, it is highly unlikely that any editor is going to accept it. So, stay up to date with recent national and world news topics, but don’t forget to keep an eye on your local news too. Find out where newsworthy events are happening and make sure you are there to cover them.

Rule 3. Send it in the correct format to the right person

First, and this is very important, get the editor’s name and use it when you send your work to them. This shows you are interested enough to find out who they are. Next, follow the submission guidelines to the letter. If you don’t it’s likely the editor will reject your article without even reading it. You can usually find this information in any good market book, such as the ‘Writers and Artist’s Yearbook’ and if you can’t, make sure you contact the magazine to request it.

Rule 4. Make sure it is proofread carefully

Once you’ve managed to get your work onto the editor’s desk, you don’t want to risk having it rejected because there are too many spelling and grammar errors to correct. Editors are too busy to correct your mistakes so all your hard work will be wasted if you fail to proofread your work properly. If you need to, get someone else to look at your work – a fresh pair of eyes can spot errors that even the most experienced writers miss.

Rule 5. Send photos with your words

Taking photos to go with your writing increases your chances of being published by one third. And, in some cases, the photos can actually earn you more than the writing itself!

Rule 6. Get it there on time

If an editor decides to take your article and gives you a deadline, you should make sure that you stick to it. Missing the deadline will mess up the editors’ schedule, making him/her really unhappy and probably resulting in them never taking work from you again.

The Writer As A Marketer

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Should aspiring or professional writers see themselves as marketers? This is a personal question that you alone should answer, not me.

I am sure you can mention a thousand and one reason people aspire to write. It could be for pleasure, fame, money, education, inform or entertain or whatever.

So, while one writer may not be interested in making money, but educating the readers, another may want to make all the money on earth. No general rule here.

I have said it over and over again; a good writer is a wordsmith. It is good to read anything and everything under the sun.

But, the journey to becoming a good writer comes with practice, practice and more practice. I have said this in my earlier articles.

Let us look at the writer as a marketer. The business side of writing, if you wish to call it so. Just like me, I am sure you too need extra income. Please, don’t laugh, only smile.

Yes, you sell yourself, your script, your books, your articles to the entire world as a writer.

In this modern age, people and nations are looking out for where individuals and nations are searching for specific information, solution, ideas, values, etc.

So, writers must strive to fill the gap, provide solutions, add values and solve problems using the writing words for their target market or audience.

I do not know about others, But, I do know as a writer, a journalist that making money comes with real hard work.

I have abandoned my family for the computers and the internet, researching, reading, browsing and having sleepless nights these days.

Truth is that my wife and daughter understand. Do they? God knows they do. Ho ho ho ho oh.

But, am I making money? Good question, but I will answer it, ha ha ha ha ha. Seriously though, writers must begin to look at the business sides of writing, if they have not already done so. I am guilty of this.

Write, tell the entire world and sell your product over time. Yes there could instance hit where you will make millions in local or foreign currencies selling your books, script, articles, novels, whatever.

There is no fast rule about this. For some writers, it could take hours, days, weeks, months and years to make a breakthrough.

The social media is a credible platform for both amateur and professional writers to tell the world about their products, themselves, their passions, knowledge and skills.

What Does the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval Mean?

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

What is Good Housekeeping?
Good Housekeeping (GH) started in 1885 as a magazine with a mission. "A mission to fulfill compounded of about equal portions of public duty and private enterprise … to produce and perpetuate perfection as may be obtained in the household." To achieve those high standards, GH Magazine made a commitment to only advertising the very best products. Still to this day, for GH to even accept advertising from any product, the GH Research Institute must first approve. From that point it has the opportunity to receive the ultimate vote of confidence – The GH Seal.

What is a Good Housekeeping Seal & What Does it Mean?
Since 1909, the Seal has backed worthy products while simultaneously validating consumer purchases. According to GH, its seal is "an emblem of the magazine's consumer policy." That consumer policy promises a full refund or replacement of a defective product within two years of its purchase, given that the product has been backed with a Seal. That's one heck of a promise, considering that GH, and not the company that created the product, is picking up the cost of a refund or replacement. That being said, GH doesn't just go handing out their stamp of approval to just any old product.

How does a Product Earn the Good Housekeeping Seal?
The first step in receiving a GH Seal is to apply. If accepted, the product and its promises will now be tested at the GH Research Institute (GHRI) by researchers, scientists, engineers and nutritionists according to its area for intended use. The GHRI is a product-evaluation laboratory that tests everything from electronics to cosmetics, to the very recipes they print in their magazine.

The Green Good Housekeeping Seal
Keeping up with the energy conservation movement, GH added a new kind of seal in 2009. The Green GH Seal is intended to help consumers, wishing to make strides towards an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly household, in finding the products that actually back up their "green" claims. Once a product receives the Seal, it could then apply for the Green GH Seal. From a product's manufacturing, all the way to its packaging and performance, the GHRI rigorously tests applicants according to their category's requirements. Electronics, paper goods, beauty and cleaning products, food, beverages, paint and coatings can all be tested for environmental responsibility and impact, as well as social responsibility.

Why GH Seal Products?
Trusting the Seal is an especially good idea when remodeling or renovating your home. A Seal guarantees longevity and as-promised performance. Windows, doors and large appliances can all be found with both the GH and Green GH Seal. When you choose a product with the Seal, you're choosing a product backed by a company with over 100 years of consumer advocacy. Look for the seal. Shop confidently.

The Difference Between Formal and Informal Writing

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

When it comes to writing in English, there are two main styles of writing – formal and informal. Consider these two examples:

Example 1:

This is to inform you that your book has been rejected by our publishing company as it was not up to the required standard. In case you would like us to reconsider it, we would suggest that you go over it and make some necessary changes.

Example 2:
You know that book I wrote? Well, the publishing company rejected it. They thought it was awful. But hey, I did the best I could, and I think it was great. I’m not gonna redo it the way they said I should.

The difference between the two is obvious. The first one is formal, and the second is informal. But what is it that makes them formal and informal?

It is the style of writing, or the way we use words to say what we want to say. Different situations call for different ways of putting words together. The way we write in academic and scientific settings differs greatly from the way we write to a friend or close one. The tone, vocabulary, and syntax, all change as the occasion changes. This difference in the styles of writing is the difference between formality and informality, or the difference between formal and informal writing.

Following is a list of some of the main differences between informal and formal writing:

Informal: May use colloquial words/expressions (kids, guy, awesome, a lot, etc.)

Formal: Avoid using colloquial words/expressions (substitute with children, man/boy, wonderful, many, etc.)

Informal: May use contractions (can’t, won’t, shouldn’t, etc.).

Formal: Avoid contractions (write out full words – cannot, will not, should not, etc.).

Informal: May use first, second, or third person.

Formal: Write in third person (except in business letters where first person may be used).

Informal: May use clichés (loads of, conspicuous by absence, etc.)

Formal: Avoid clichés (use many, was absent, etc.)

Informal: May address readers using second person pronouns (you, your, etc)

Formal: Avoid addressing readers using second person pronouns (use one, one’s, the reader, the reader’s, etc.)

Informal: May use abbreviated words (photo, TV, etc)

Formal: Avoid using abbreviated words (use full versions – like photograph, television, etc.)

Informal: May use imperative voice (e.g. Remember….)

Formal: Avoid imperative voice (use Please refer to…..)

Informal: May use active voice (e.g. We have notice that…..)

Formal: Use passive voice (e.g. It has been noticed that….)

Informal: May use short and simple sentences.

Formal: Longer and more complex sentences are preferred (short simple sentences reflects poorly on the writer)

Informal: Difficulty of subject may be acknowledged and empathy shown to the reader.

Formal: State your points confidently and offer your argument firm support.

These are just some of the differences between formal and informal writing. The main thing to remember is that both are correct, it is just a matter of tone and setting. Formal English is used mainly in academic writing and business communications, whereas Informal English is casual and is appropriate when communicating with friends and other close ones. Choose the style of writing keeping in mind what you are writing and to whom. But whichever style you write in – formal or informal – be sure to keep it consistent, do not mix the two.
