We’re Launching WritersWeekly’s “Find the Typo” Contest on Facebook! Win a Free Print Book!

Hey Angela,

Will there be a chance for your readers to submit as well? Your post came on the heels of a blunder I had to re-read on my Facebook feed from a Canadian “Trump-ish” businessman who is running for the leadership of a political party. Kevin O’Leary from TV’s Shark Tank is a shrewd businessman but he sure could use a communications advisor…He used there instead of their in a statement on Facebook to the party and the constituants addressing party membership cards.

Anyway, I’m the exact same way when it comes to grammar and spelling. So much so that I’ve been called a “Grammar Nazi”, a DICK-tionary, Pain-intheASSuarus. I’m inclined to think they were terms of endearment but who am I kidding…lol

How I’m Returning to Full-time Freelancing after a Layoff by Steve Sears

Been there done that. I would not want to do it full time again.

Business writing has potential. Other types not so much. Things have changed since back when. I would try to get a full time job doing it for a company rather than trying to run my small biz doing everything from marketing to writing, plus bookkeeping and more.

I agree with Joe .. I’m sort of retired now and it’s been my best time to write. I write about the things I’m doing now, and spinning other articles. It takes forever to get your work published, so I’ve gone techie.

Brian Takes His “Home Office” on the High Seas! – Days 1-4


Fish Story” begins with a boater off Florida encountering a pod of dolphins. Take a look at it for a fun read on your trip.

-Woody Wilson

Wow. This is the closest I’ll ever get to traveling the high seas. I love this post and look forward to the ones that will follow.

Dear Angela,

Cannot wait till next week to hear from the boatman.
Please ask him to write every day and although your WritersWeekly is a weekly magazine, for one month, make it daily.



I look forward to reading further travel posts. Be safe! Buon viaggio!

Bridge of Sighs and Dreams
Nazi-occupied Rome sets the stage for Bridge of Sighs and Dreams, where the lives of two women collide in an arena of deception, greed, and sacrifice.
