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:
- Please comment on THIS post. You can write long or write short, I’m easy.
- 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.
- 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!
