Using ads on your writer platforms

Hello everybody! DISCLAIMER: Why would you share your insights to other people? Brief answer: even if the competition among wannabe published writers is high, I still feel like we should all help each other. Facebook page & Instagram profile A couple of days ago, I finally decided to start working on my author Facebook page. When trying to get your name out there, using a blog and social media is the best way to promote yourself. So, that’s why I decided to use a Facebook page and use that platform to share my writing on the web. When I created it, a

Hello everybody! Basically, everyone owns a smartphone, a device that we use more for chatting, surfing the internet or playing video games, than for phone calls.

The Writer Tag

The Writer Tag

Hello there! I was on YouTube earlier and watched Kim Chance‘s last video, “The Writer Tag”. Since I don’t do videos, I though it would be nice and different for me to try and write this tag here on my blog! So, here it is. Enjoy! 1. What do you eat or drink while writing? I usually drink tea or ginseng coffee, just a hot beverage to warm myself up (I don’t know if I’ll do the same now that it’s 30°C outside. Argh.) and concentrate.
