Lonely Writer Videos

What is it about videos, that make them so much easier to follow? Whether it is step by step instructions or just a little friendly advice, a video can sometimes go a lot further than a blog post or meme or cheat sheet can.

Hi! I am so pleased to meet you! Let’s talk about writing, about social media, and how to bring out the best in you.

In the meantime, we will touch on a number of fun and interesting topics, including covers and cover artists, beta readers and editors, how to write a blurb, and how to keep out of copyright infringement hot water.

Come and check out my YouTube channel when you get a chance, and let’s talk writing!

These are always a lot of fun to make. Dang, I should make some more! And maybe they’ll be for Facebook Reels or TikTok, rather than YouTube.

The limit? Only the sky.
