Four things to consider before you begin writing.

Everyone’s life story is unique. It is a journey interwoven with the lives of others, interspersed with events, both planned and unforeseen. Different places, experiences, careers, journeys, relationships, tragedies and triumphs, moments of mirth, fateful meetings and everything in between. Once we have years of experience under our belt, some of us feel the urge to record our stories. The reasons for this may be purely personal, or perhaps for financial gain. We may wish to share our story with loved ones, produce a work of historical interest, impart wisdom and knowledge to future generations, or to ‘set the record straight’ where we feel others do not have a clear (or truthful) idea of who we really are.

Businesses and other organisations are increasingly hiring freelance writers, editors and proofreaders to perfect their websites, marketing material, blogs, eBooks and annual reports. Sally Asnicar of Full Proofreading Services gives FOUR GOOD REASONS why this is a wise move.

Do you baulk at the thought of hiring a freelance copywriter, editor or proofreader? You’re not alone. Often the perception is that it’s non-essential and/or unaffordable. Besides, you have staff who are ‘good with that stuff’ – right? Wrong. Before you discount using the services of a freelancer, consider these THREE important questions:

I would love to be able to spew out a piece of writing with the ease Pro Hart seemed to produce ‘Bicentennial Cannon Painting’

Yes, I’m exhausted. And not because it’s almost Christmas, which is when I become the Grinch because like most wives and mothers, Christmas stretches us to our limits of patience, multi-tasking prowess, and funding. Nor is it because I’ve been meeting the mad deadlines clients throw at me before Christmas. I’m exhausted because in addition to my usual editing and proofreading projects, I’ve been working on a ghost-writing project.

There’s no doubt I have learned more in 10 years of running my own business than I learned in nearly 30 years of being an employee. Of course, I learned new skills in each job, and some employers gave me training and excellent support. But running my own business has challenged me to stretch my knowledge and skills more than ever before. I am no longer just ‘doing my job’; I am running a business and all that it entails. It’s definitely a steep learning curve.

If you force-feed readers with dialogue tags, they might lose their appetite.

There are FOUR common mistakes writers make when creating dialogue:

  1. Overuse of dialogue tags.
  2. Homogenous use of dialogue tags.
  3. Underuse of dialogue tags.
  4. Overuse of adverbs/use of inappropriate verbs as dialogue tags.

Let’s look at an example of each:
