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. Even though writing and storytelling and blogging and SEO aren’t your day job, you want to do them better.

You need to get the most value you can from your reading time. That’s why every week I pick the one post from the web’s multitudes that will help you get better. This week I’m pointing you Jerry Jenkins’ post about writing an effective book proposal and using it to sell your book.

Here’s a link to my recent post titled “Writing a Book: Learning to be More Productive.” You can learn to write more good stuff faster.
