The Business of Writing Top 10: How to have more fun

In Uncategorized on June 30, 2014 at 12:27 am

I love this mans wit. If you feel like you need an oomph Chazz’s humor does just that. In this article he talks about how we can make something like even our copy writing fun.

Have you ever watched shows like World’s Funniest Commercials?

This Plague of Days OMNIBUS (Large)When the show took a commercial break, did you sit on your couch and watch the regular commercials and wonder why they had to be so bland? Or did you go make a sandwich or run for the bathroom? Commercials don’t have to be as bad as they often are. Think of the annual hype around Superbowl commercials. How is it that the rest of the year, commercials are background noise for making sandwiches and flushing? The ad industry should try harder.

And so should we. Book promotion can be fun. We should take fun more seriously.

When we write our books, we are at our best. We’re witty and play with ideas and irony. We tell stories. We’re in the entertainment business. So why lose all that buoyancy when it comes to promoting our work? Advertising is writing, too. Yes, writing back cover blurbs…

Evening all,

After tearing over the decision I’ve decided that I need to take the next step of getting my platform underpinnings together.  So I’m expecting to move to a Bluehost.com server.  The finances are finally there, and to take things to the next level I need to simply own my blog/website.  Right now I have two sites to keep up and I need to direct traffic to one point.

So keep me in your thoughts and prayers.  I also want to make sure I’m targeting content that readers want to see.  So I plan on dealing with leadership, entrepreneurship, and writing and or course Christian opinion.

Please bear with me, its been a hectic last week with my kindle countdown promotion which was an incredible success.  Also I have both my sons and my own birthday’s coming up this week.  But I do expect to put up some content this week.  I also have a author interview that is upcoming as well as two media announcements shortly so stay tuned!

One of the challenges of running your own business is that you really are doing everything yourself.  So it takes time.  Since I do work, well needless to say its time consuming.

But great things are in store.  In the meantime enjoy this bit of music that is part of the soundtrack for the next book.
