Writing Techniques
"Reading is a journey through your mind's eye. Writing is the creation of that journey."--The Coffee Mom

This site was created for the working writer.  In an attempt to help those still young in writing to develop their skill and find a niche. This site will contain several job resources available , and assistance in writing an award winning resume to bring in the jobs you want.  There will also be several links to other areas online to help develop your skills in HTML, and hopefully creating a website of your own.  
If making money is your goal, then this site is not for you.  If your need is to hone your craft so you can achieve your writing goals in your genre then welcome!  I am hoping to create a "Wing" of writer's around the net willing to help those in need of assistance if you need a more personal one on one contact with specific questions that are not answered by this site.

There are two types of writers:

a) THE HOBBYIST - who writes for the joy of others, but has failed to submit work for publication.   

b) THE PROFESSIONAL WRITER - who writes for the joy of others, published, and paid for it.
Which type are you? 

Rule of thumb: One short descriptive sentence is better than a comma spliced, or fused sentence.

Do you know what the difference between a simile and a metaphor?

Simile - A figure of speech that expresses a resemblance between things of different kinds (usually formed with 'like' or 'as') Example: Marsha sings like a bird.

Metaphor - A figure of speech in which an expression is used to refer to something that it does not literally denote in order to suggest a similarity. Example: Her voice rang crystal clear above the chattering masses.

Happy Writing,
