Hello in Detroit from Ohio! I've never met a pen I didn't like either, except maybe that one that wrote in invisible ink. Major Disappointment.  ;)

Margarett,

Poetry is a polite fetish of mine.  Where are the links to your pieces?
How do you juggle switching gears between genres?  I'd love to hear your recipe for balancing them.
I'd love to share some of my works with you.

Regards,

--- Idris


Thanks for asking.

I am working on a few poems, two childrens books, and an adult fiction romance called "Mine". Another adult fiction romace called " Waltzing with a Water Fairie"

I have posted a couple poems in the Poetry workshop.

One called " White Snake Empty "  and  " Uncaged Rage "  those are my newest poems.

Hope to see some of yours.

Best of luck!
I haven't met a pen I didn't like yet! I love to write, I can prove it at www.writerscbok.com :-) Cheers!!!

Hi Idris,
Thanks for asking.I have only been writing just over a year but I am working on a thriller alongside a script of the same. I write quite a few short stories. Poetry and me don't mix I am afraid so we won't meet on the poetry boards. Not that I don't like some of it, just that I don't understand a lot of it. :)

LOL, my "current" projects are the usual blog posts for SEO clients, website content for insurance companies and medical products, and a few link building projects. My biggest project right now is managing my own website. I recently interviewed 15 top bloggers about improving their writing and the response has been tremendous! This has been fun yet time consuming, but the community is amazing!

What's on your schedule this week?

BlueDuckCopy,

Sounds exciting!  What's your site, I'm currently building a writers blog site. I'd love to hear some of your experiences or even better read about them. :o
I'm currently putting together content to go up on the site, mostly how to's, tips and tricks, recommendations, you know the meat and potato's of what makes a good site a great site.  :D

Hello, idris.

Welcome. This is a great place. Has always been for me. It has a rich soil of various opinions.

I looked at your blog. It looks as if it will be very successful.

GrayAyes, :D

Greetings, I like both your poetry and short story!
They were both tangible with elements that are so everyday yet rarely touched in thought as your words so elegantly presented them.

Thank you for the compliment.  I'm hoping that as I continue to add good content the site will catch on as  a staple/main stay for the writing communities.
While we're on the topic, which parts of the site did you like?
Was any of the information good?
Were you able to find value in the items there?

Looking forward to conversing with you.

Kind Regards,

Hi Idris,
Thanks again for the interest.
Maybe an email would be a better place to discuss things at length, rather than the forum. Drop me a line if you still want more.

Hi Idris,

My website is a combination static business website/ blog for freelance writers. (on WordPress) http://blueduckcopy.com

I would also recommend reading: http://writerdad.com  http://menwithpens.ca  http://copyblogger  http://freelancefolder.com

for really good writing  and website marketing tips.

AS far as content goes, just write from your heart, make it interesting, and the traffic will come with a little promotion. :)

BlueDuckCopy,

Thanks for the information and all the sites, I've visited each one of them and I've been enriched greatly from the experienced.
I like the overall format of them all and see the consistency from site to site.

Thank you,

I've also taken some of your pointers and made corrections on my blog.
Do each of the owners of those sites know one another?
Are they all owned by the same group of people?
Is there a forum for blog masters?

Looking forward to future posts,


Regards,

Hi Idris,
Most of the owners know each other just from commenting on each other's blogs. No, they are each owned by separate individuals or companies. I am not sure if there is a forum for blog masters, but the creative writing circle at men with pens is pretty tight. The comments section on each blog is very active, with writers who actually contribute to the discussion instead of just the obligatory, "Thanks for the post". You can search the archives and read up on old posts.

Are you having any specific problems?

I have yet to see you show up in my comments section. ;)

Jamie
