Writing for Quick Cash: Make Money for What You Write

In the spirit of NaNoWriMo, I knew there had to be other opportunities to practice writing outside of writing a novel. For example, I pursue my writing aspirations on my blog site here. I have entered writing competitions for literary magazines as well. I haven’t made a single cent, but it keeps me happy. So there had to be more opportunities out there. Then I came across Writing for Quick Cash by Loriann Hoff Oberlin.

I have found another treasure for those completing their NaNoWriMo: Writing Your Story! challenge or want help improving their writing .

The Everything Guide: Writing Your First Novel

One of my goals for the year has been to improve my writing. It may seem like a lofty goal, but there are thousands of books about writing in general. One of my favorite books that I have used in helping improve my writing is the Everything Guide to Writing Your First Novel.

I think the best advice is how to format your writing presented within the book. It explains different plot structures that authors can use to write their ideas into a full story. It also offers ideas on character creation, which is an important element to story telling. Each aspect of writing is written with details and simple language for anyone to understand. The guide is easy to use and laid out in a logical manner for the beginners.
