Writers Circle newsletter. The second edited by me.
|Note from the Editor:
Welcome to the Writers' Circle Newsletter!
I have heard that writing non-fiction is the secret to getting your foot wedged into the door of publication. Regardless of the legitimacy of this statement it is the topic of this weeks newsletter.
*Grabs your hand*
Come with me while we explore some of the non-fiction items here at Writing.Com and maybe even become prompted (intrigued or *ahem* nudged) into creating one or more of your own.
Next week's editor will be the wonderfully witty karenls... Um, I think.
Featured Nonfiction Items/Forums From Our Members:
And a couple of my own (tee-hee, covert plug :))

:) ***Don't forget to tell the great authors featured this week that you saw their item in the Writers Circle newsletter when you rate and review them!*** :)
Writing Prompt: Take one or more of these prompts away with you this week and add some non-fiction into your portfolio!
1) Know alot about gardening, baking, nail polish or smurfs? Write an article about it!
2) Love to recount your life experiences (with a bit of exageration for effect)? Write some commentary!
***As an added nudge, if you write some commentary or an article and would like a writing credit, email the item to me and potentially be featured on my website http://redridinghood1.tripod.com/main.html. No pay but I will happily promote your portfolio or website for as long as it is good for both of us.***
3) Don't know how to start something as foreign as *gasp* NON-fiction? Write a letter, do a newsletter, or even an essay. You CAN write non-fiction too!
This one tickled my funny bone...
Weekly Quote: "To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism, to steal ideas from many is research."
This one is a bit more serious...
A quotation in a speech, article or book is like a rifle in the hands of an infantryman. It speaks with authority. *Brendan Francis*
