Another Contest: What Are Your Writing Problems?

The thought has occurred to me that it is time to write an e-book.  Actually,thought has occurred to me before.  Many times.  But, as is so often the case, I got sidetracked.  (On another, related note, I have not forgotten my vow to present the last two Writing Bogs.  They are coming soon.  Maybe even tomorrow.  Really.)

Alas, many topics present themselves as possibilities.  And since I am simultaneously working on a ghost-writing project, rewriting a novel, thinking about a new one, co-directing the Writer’s Loft, working with students, and writing copy for my coaching website, I thought it might be a good idea to get clarity on which one to do first.

So, here’s the deal.  I’m running a survey.  I have several questions I would like you to answer.  I’ll put the name of everybody who answers in a hat and have an impartial, unbiased observer (my son) pull a name.  That person will win a free coaching session. 

Here are a couple of guidelines:

  1. Please comment on THIS post.  You can write long or write short, I’m easy. 
  2. I’ll take comments until April 18th.  That is two nice long weeks.  The drawing will be held on April 20th and I’ll contact the winner by email.
  3. Answer as many questions as your little heart desires.

Here are the questions:

What is the biggest problem that you, as a writer (or creative person) face?

What kind of writing-related information do you have difficulty finding and would like to find more of?  (For instance, publishing, how to get started, how to follow a consistent writing practice, craft issues such as character, plot, dialogue, or anything that occurs to you)

What kind of writing-related information are you most interested in?

What kind of writing-related information would you be most interested in reading a book on?

Bonus question:  Indicate on a scale of 1 to 10 how interested you would be in reading the following:

Set The Words Free.  E-book covering how to get writing and stay writing, with information, tips and techniques on creating an endless flow of words.

The Three Fold Writer’s Path.  E-book covering the three paths of writing: story, style, and creativity.

Make Money Writing Online.  Freelancing for online markets.

Elements of Fiction.  Description, imagery, theme, plot, character, dialogue–all that good stuff.

Thanks in advance for your participation!
