Whatever kind of writing you do, there are going to be online links you need to keep track of. Here’s a simple and quick way to get your research done…
I’m currently working on a big thought leadership piece for a client. Many research papers have been looked at, many websites visited. At this point, I don’t know what information I’m going to use, or which links I’m going to use. So I need to keep all of them, just in case.
One of the more mysterious concepts in writing and editing is that of “voice”. Here’s how to find your writing voice (it can take a long time, but you’ll get there!).
The author biography in the front of Terry Pratchett novels says that he started work as a journalist one day in 1965 and saw his first corpse three hours later, work experience meaning something in those days. The bio continues:
I write a blog post once a week, and an article almost every week for a corporate client. Plus fund-raising proposals and press releases and social media posts and newsletters. What I don’t do is write like Stephen King.
I’m starting to think though that I should give that a try. (I don’t mean write like Stephen King as in be a best-selling author of 64 books; I just mean I should write more than I do now, or differently from the way I do it now).
