How much is your writing worth?

What is your writing worth_Sarah Lentz

How do we decide what our writing is worth?What should a freelance writer charge? I usually dread this question. Let's begin by pointing out the obvious: pricing depends, in part, on the following: skills & experiencewriting style (this does matter)what we're writing (lifestyle blog posts, white papers, etc.)how much your client trusts you and your writing abilityI'll be upfront, though, and tell you I'm ashamed of my previous answer to the question of how a freelance writer should decide what to charge. I'm...

How can branding help you sell more books?

How can branding help you sell more books by Sarah Lentz

Why does branding matter?I've been doing some research on book marketing tactics -- so I can include the best books I find in a list for my next book, Writers in the Red. My book won't be long enough to contain everything you'd ever want to know about self-publishing, so the least I can do is provide a list of books that have actually helped me sell more of my own books. If I want that list, I'm pretty sure the readers...

HypothyroidWriter.com new Udemy course 2018 goals post_Sarah Lentz

A new Udemy course for a new yearI took advantage of a New Year's sale for Udemy and a $5 credit they sent me by email to nab a brand new course I bookmarked and almost bought during the Black Friday sale. The full price (i.e. when Udemy isn't having one of its fantastic sales) is $200. I paid $5.99. What is this course, you ask? Writing with Flair 2.0: How to Become an Exceptional Writer with Shani Raja (Ex-Wall Street Journal Editor). So...

Hypothyroidism: When it doesn’t stay better (guest post)

HypothyroidWriter.com guest post by Althaea_Sarah Lentz

Behold, our first guest post!by Althaea* (a fellow hypothyroid writer)Hypothyroidism is not something we can just fix with a daily thyroid supplement, and some days are definitely better than others. Sometimes we find something that makes a big difference -- at least for a time. This post is for all those who've experienced a major improvement and who've jumped into action to make the most of it, only to crash when, sometime later, the improvement ran out. It happens. Maybe you...

When your fears about your writing come true…

HypothyroidWriter.com writing fears blog post Sarah Lentz

Naming the fearsThe other day, I was looking over a mind-map I'd created for my first book and reading the bits about the fears I had with regard to writing and self-publishing it. These (some of them, at least) will no doubt sound familiar: the fear that I'll put months into writing this book only to realize that no one cares to read it -- much less spend money on itthe fear that no matter how much time and effort I put...

Logic and Writing (Part One): Deductive vs. Inductive Reasoning and valid vs. sound arguments

HypothyroidWriter.com logic in writing part one blog post Sarah Lentz

Logic in Writing: Part OneDeductive vs. Inductive ReasoningThose who know me best won't be surprised to read that I prefer deductive reasoning to inductive. I've never been a fan of making general statements about a group of people, based on a few specific examples. This is how we get statements like "you get what you pay for" and "anyone who voted for him/her is my enemy / an idiot / going to he**."We can do better.This series of posts has to...
