Selected Articles and Stories
|Someday Dead Writers Need To Worry!|
Do ya’ll ever notice that the older you get, the more attention you pay to the obituaries section in the newspaper? I hate to admit it, but it’s true. When I was a young man, I never even bothered looking at the obituaries.
|Writing in the Shower (or Wherever You May Be)|

I have to tell you, I was very skeptical in the beginning. Nervous even. I had one finger on the "buy now" button, and one finger poised, ready to request a refund. I guess, when I bought Michael Masterson's course, I was anxious that this would be one of those screaming, ranting, raving sales letter courses that tells you that you HAVE to write all copy the same way with a tone that sounds like a used car salesman on steroids.

As you may already know, writing free reprint articles and then distributing them to publishers and web sites is one of the best ways to promote your web site - a single article can result in hundreds of new links to your web site and a rapid increase in traffic levels.
