    For this week's free resource for writers, I'm giving you an action plan template loosely based on my own action plan format (though mine are usually scribbled out on 5x8" index cards). Here's a bit of background on what an action plan is and how you can use this template. And near the end of the post you can find […]

    At some point I'm sure you've been told that writers should write every day if they want to be successful. I don't personally believe that.

You can find these in the writing challenges section of the forum where you can follow others' challenge progress, track and […]

    If you've been a long-time reader, you probably know I run a lot of websites. And you might have seen me mention that GoDaddy was my registrar of choice (or at least the one I used and recommended). For years, GoDaddy had the best deals. While that might not matter much if you only need to register a few domains […]

While I was off most of last week, I didn't put something up, and I'm making up for it with two freebies this week. The first is a simple downloadable content idea checklist for your author website and blog. About the Author Website Content […]

    If you've been a reader of All Indie Writers (and previously All Freelance Writing) for a while, you know I'm a big fan of what I like to call "query-free freelancing." This is a marketing strategy that takes a different approach than traditional querying to land freelance writing gigs. Instead, it's about doing things that attract clients to you. A big part […]

Through June I already have new resources lined up […]
