5 Things Writers Can Easily Re-purpose, Getting More Mileage From Your Work.

How to get more mileage out of that good stuff you know is good…

Your work doesn’t have to be used just for one thing. Re-purpose.

Your blog post could be recombined into articles.

Take your articles and combine them into new books,

Take fragments of your books and use them for posts or articles.

Those articles could be turned into podcasts.

Out of print books can be scanned ( I used Bound Book Scanning but do a search for book scanning) and put into digital copy to publish on Amazon etc,

Other things to look at for re-purposing is interviews you may have done, power points you created.

Get the idea?

Share some of the things you re-purpose in the comment box below. We’d love to hear your ideas.

Now It Comes to the Editing and Proofreading. They Are Different You Know.

It’s one thing to get your stories written down but if you are looking to have them published you have two more stages to complete.

Editing

  1. Correct spelling and grammar.
  2. Check the logical flow of ideas.
  3. Check consistency of language, tone, and style.
  4. Check facts and figures.
  5. Ensure that the writer is getting the intended message across.
  6. Ensure that the work is readable.
  7. Ensure there are no obvious errors.

Then for the final stage with one last quality check you proofread.

  1. Correct inconsistent formatting in layout, which includes margins, page numbering, italics, alignment, headers and footers, quotes, paragraphing, spacing, tabs, and fonts.
  2. Correct usage of language, which includes spelling (British or American English), punctuation, grammar, hyphenation, capitalisation, abbreviations, and acronyms.

Thanks to Writers Write for these pointers.

For more details on writing a draft, editing and proofreading check out this short video.

Tip # 2 Learn how to get the most production from your efforts.

Check out an earlier post at: http://writerssecrets.com/3-ways-to-get-more-productivity-from-your-writing-efforts/

Will Newman’s  Strategies from  Will Newman for Scheduling your Copy-writing to bring you more success.

1. Look inside yourself . . .

Successful scheduling starts with knowing when you work best. You’ll want to schedule around those times of day as much as possible.

2. Gather materials . . .

To make my strategy work, you need:

  • “Butcher” paper, about 4′ by 8′
  • Index cards
  • Different colored markers
  • Yardstick
  • Space where you can spread everything out

3. Draw your weekly schedule skeleton . . .

Draw eight columns (up and down) on the butcher paper. Fill in days of the week across the top starting in the second column. Draw horizontal lines 3″ apart across the paper for times during the day.

Put times in the far left column starting an hour before you wake up. Continue with ½-hour blocks to an hour after you normally go to bed.

It should look something like this:

schedule
