Even Dinosaurs Can Write Brenda J Wood

A techie writer of the twenty-first century I am not.  I barely tweet and I recently closed down one of my Facebook pages because it gobbled too much time. The best writing tool is common sense.  Be a writer who writes.

Read everything you can get your hands on.  I pick up every freebie newspaper or magazine going. I read mysteries, novels, historical features and short stories.  I peruse my Bible. A line, a verse, a thought pops into my head when I read other viewpoints. Once I get an idea, the article is not far behind and as the daily devotional writer for http://everydaychristian.com , I need all the fresh ideas I can get.

It doesn’t hurt to be a speed reader either.  Practice this skill. It will save you both time and money.

Thirdly, I review and edit material for other writers.  Because I’ve always edited my own stuff, I have a feel for what works and what doesn’t. I’ve been known to pull my manuscript out of the hands of a ‘professional’ editor who missed the whole concept of my article.

You don’t have to write a book in order to call yourself a writer.  I’ve written a book a year for longer than I care to remember, but right now, I’m concentrating on blogging.  I post on at least six blogs, including my own at http://heartfeltdevotionals.com

Some of the others include:

http://familyandfaithmatters.wordpress.com

http://underthecoverofprayer.wordpress.com

http://inscribe.org

http://www.presbycan.ca

It costs me nothing but time and generosity to ‘fellow blog’ and I gain more experience, new friends and a following…simply because I write.
