My skydiving web site content writing experience!

Hello everyone,
Today I’d like to keep you updated on my experience writing web content for a skydiving website. To be honest, this was different than anything I’ve ever done in the over six years I have worked as an author/writer. In the process of writing the content, I have learned a lot about skydiving, although I don’t see myself taking up the sport, for financial and personal reasons. With that being said, skydiving is a fascinating topic to write about.
First of all, writing content for a website is totally different tfrom writing articles and blog posts for yourself ora client. For one thing, the project has a very detailed outline with specific instructions, including word counts for each headline and block of text on the webpage. The best thing about writing web content is that they provide source links for you, to help you create your own content, and give accurate information. Although this cuts down on research, there was a bit of research that I had to do for the assigned city, and a bit about one of their packages, so I could provide the information needed, in a creative manner. Other than that, the specifics were laid out for me, to the letter!
Personally, there were some tedious parts of the content that needed to be written, but overall I had fun doing the project! I’m also applying for a few other writing jobs, so keep me in your prayers, and keep your fingers crossed that they accept this first project.
Love and prayers to all my friends in the blogosphere, and I’ll see you next time.

An update for myBlogger friends

Hello everyone,
Have you ever wanted something so bad that you could almost taste it, or prayed for something so hard that you could almost feel it? Well, I’ve been praying for a writing job, for two reasons. Reason number one, to supplement my fixed income, and number two, to use my God given talent for writing. Today, my friends, my prayers have been answered. I finally got a temporary freelance writing job for a sports broker called Rushcube. Although the company would rather me write my articles in Google docs, I asked if I could attach the document in Word, and she had no problem with that. My manager even said that she would be happy to paste the document in google docs for me.
I write this little tidbit, to share my good news, and ask you to continue praying for me as I persue this job opportunity. I will keep you posted on my work, and let you know if any other opportunities come available for me. BTW, if anyone needs a freelance blogger to write guest posts, or ghost write for them, I will be happy to write for you. Let me know if I can be of service in the comments below.

Writing inspiration from true crime documentaries

Have you ever watched something on television and found it to be an inspiration for writing? This is happened to me just in the past day or so. My fiancĂ© and I were listening to a documentary about the JonBenet Ramsey case, andThe more questions we had about the case, the more I got inspired I was up writing late last night, after watching the second part of the documentary, and wrote for about two hours of work to get back to bed. This morning we watched a doctor is Dr. Phil interview with Burke Ramsey, JonBenet Ramsey. With all the different edits, we’re still unsure of Who the true killer is, although we’ve heard that he has been found. This is a answer one of the ways that I get inspiration from my fiction, I watching true crime investigations like this, and it also helps me to get the information that I have authentic for my mysteries. If you ever find watching TV shows are listening to documentaries inspires your writing, be sure to take that inspiration and run with it, because that will be the time when you do your best writing. Happy writing, and keep up the good work.

Book review: Things We Keep

I just finished a book entitled Things We Keep, by Sally Hepworth, and it was an amazing book. The narrators who read the book for the NLS talking book program, were finominal! I highly suggest that you get this book on audio book, ebook. or in print. It’s hard to put down, and it’s a book that I will remember for a long time to come
Things We Keep is a book about two young people with different types of dementia, and a lady who works as cook and cleaning lady, who find the truth about love. Anna has been diagnosed with early onset alzheimers disease at the age of 38. She started forgetting things long before her diagnosis, such as the lisense number and make and modle of her car, and other things. She was volunterily placed in Rosalind House, an assisted living facility for seniors, after her youngest nephew was splattered by burning chocolate, while attempting to take the pan off the stove, after the fondu started to burn. While at Rosalind House, she meets Luke, a patient with frontal lobe dementia. Eve is a widow with a young daughter.
When Eve’s husband falsifies financial records, he kills himself before the government can catch up to him, leaving his wife and daughter to suffer alone. Eve is hired as the cook for Rosalind House, and gets to know the patients. Although Anna tells her story from the time before Eve came into the picture, you discover how she and Luke become closer and closer. Although Anna’s brother and Luke’s sister want them to be apart, to keep them safe, they still find ways to be together. Eve is the one to show Jack the truth about what can happen when someone isn’t allowed to be happy.
I won’t spoil the book itself for you, but I can tell you, that you get an idea how devistating it can be for Anna when she looses her memory. Even though this is a work of fiction, it taught me how Alzheimers effects a person’s memory and depth perception. For example, Luke sees the door way in front of him, but high steps over the entrance to another room, because he can’t tell a flat surface from a rased one. I don’t want to spoil it for you, but there is an incident that causes Jack and Luke’s sister Sarah to request that the two be kept apart from one another. I can tell you that once you read this book, you will see the world of the characters, including Eve’s daughter, in a different light. I personally give this book a five star rating, because the author kept me sucked into the story from the beginning.

Happy Belated Thanksgiving

Good morning everyone,
I’d like to wish each of you a belated Happy Thanksgiving, and I hope you have a merry and blessed Christmas of 2016. Although this post is short, I don’t want to leave you wondering when I will post again. I’m in the midst of NaNoWriMo and although I’m behind, I have inspired my boyfriend to begin writing basic stories as well. What does this mean? Well, let’s just say, we write together, whether on the phone, or in person.
Stay tuned, because once I move to Athens, I will write a post about the tree that “owns itself”. So until next time, have a blessed weekend.
