I’ve lived in Illinois all my life, up to this point. Right now, that means living in a country house north of a medium-sized town, not far from LOTS of smaller towns.
I started writing in school, and a science fiction story of mine was turned into a play at the local library (not bad for a third-grader).
After high school, I signed up to be mentored in how to write for magazines through a correspondence course from Long Ridge Writers Group. I had some success, but not to the extent I’d hoped. I started 15 novels, all of which were part of a collaborative writing website (check out some links here).
In 2012, I discovered copywriting, and joined Autoresponder Apprentice, an email writing mentoring program from American Writers and Artists, Inc. (AWAI). What was strange about this whole copywriting thing was, some things I was learning from my instructor Jay White were concepts I used as a fiction writer–only this time, they were applied to get a different result, or given a different name.
That’s why I started this blog. I want to share what I’ve learned–one post at a time.
Let’s get to it.
