Share Your Editing Tips and Get a Headstart on Positive Writing New Year!

Today is the day! For you to share with your friends and get a headstart on your promotion (and yes, great editing is great promotion!) for the New Year!

It's also a day for celebrating Fran Silverman's new radio show Fraternizing with Fran together. It airs live on Mondays at noon (ET) (9 am Pacific Time) on Scroll down to Fran's show. On the hour-long show, Fran interviews authors and radio hosts who she considers the "unsung heroes" of our times. I am honored to be among her first guests. Listen tomorrow!

Visit Fran's show page to find the archives,too. They are available a few hours after the show ends.

And here's how you can help. I will be giving away a set of my multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally in their e-book format. It's a prize to those who drop leave a promotion or editing tip in the comment column of my Sharing with Writers blog ( That morning or at any time during the day. I'll choose a winner from the tips contributed by letting Fran choose a number. You could win both The Frugal Book Promoter, The Frugal Editor and my Amazon Short (49 cents! LOL) "The Great First Impression Book Proposal."

Here's something special for my Frugal, Smart and Tuned-In Editor readers. I'll assemble editing tips and publish on them on this blog. So be sure to practice your promotion skills and leave a signature with your book title and link on the comment you leave. (-:

Sound fun? Come by and listen to Fran and me chat! Leave a tip to share with others. Let's get 2010 off with a great career-changing boost.

Active Voice means the subject is the (active) person or thing performing the action of the verb. And if you can change as many passive verbs to active verbs in your writing as possible, Article Writing your writing will improve exponentially.
