The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 4/3/15

Apr 3, 2015 | Better Writing

You’re a businessperson. You may not think of yourself as a writer, but you know that writing well can boost your results and your career. Naturally, you want to do better. Every week I point you to one or two pieces that I think will teach you something or spark an idea or two. This week I’m pointing you to pieces on writing a how I did it blog post and what Lisa Freeman has learned about writing.

From Darren Rowse: Blog Post Idea: How I Do It Posts

“Today I’d like to suggest another simple technique for coming up with blog post ideas. It’s simple yet is perhaps one of the most powerful types of posts I’ve used on my own blogs many times in the last 12 years. I call these posts the ‘how I do (or did) it’ post.”

Wally’s Comment: Good advice from a pro.

From Adrienne Crezo: 7 Things I’ve Learned So Far, by Lisa Freeman

“In ‘7 Things I’ve Learned So Far,’ writers at any stage of their career can talk about writing advice and instruction as well as how they possibly got their book agent — by sharing seven things they’ve learned along their writing journey that they wish they knew at the beginning. This installment is from Lisa Freeman, author of HONEY GIRL (Sky Pony Press, March 2015).”

Wally’s Comment: I love this Writer’s Digest series because we’ve always got something to learn from other writers.
