Real World "Editorial Success Stories"

Two new "real world" stories were added to today.

EXCERPT of First Account
I am a fulltime freelance writer who works from home. I have published over three dozen books and perhaps 2,000 magazine articles and short stories--most of this since I left my last job in March, 1983. Much of my work involves the history of technology, biography, how-to (writing and computing), or making technical topics understandable to the lay person.

EXCERPT of Second Account
I have worked for nearly two years as an editor of a metro Detroit community newspaper group. I have chosen to write my story as an "honest account" of a regular day--complete with annoyances, frustrations, and joys, too, of what it's like to manage a community newspaper.

I have spent the last six months or so compiling a list of freelance writing guidelines. I had hoped to build the list to 1,000, but due to other pressing demands, will not be able to devote the time to it. To date, I have compiled and verified a list 180 contacts.This list is free to anyone who orders an Inkwell Editorial e-book during the month of October. It will be sent to you as an attached MS Word file (for ease of opening) after your order has been received. With thanks,Y. Black, Proprietor, Inkwell Editorial

SAMPLE LISTING: Please note, listings vary, eg, there are guidelines for e-zines, magazines, websites, etc. In short, something for everyone.
