How is it possible that October is nearly over? I just wrapped up a big copywriting job, creating the content for e-mail marketing and web landing pages across four different industries. I give some credit to my time spent on Twitter for helping me whittle e-mail subject lines to under 60 characters each!
This week’s Cognitive Connection brings you three blogs you haven’t seen here before and a do not miss post that furthers the discussion on writer mills.
- Ed2010 Non-Traditional Paths to Magazine Success by Molly Fergus
- Social Media Examiner 7 Ways to Overcome the Social Media Time Sink by Cindy King
- Writer’s Digest: There Are No Rules Blog The Much Maligned Adverb guest post by Jim Adam
Writer Mills Update
Deb Ng of the Freelance Writing Gigs community has frequently been mentioned in posts about writer mills. I’ve also seen Deb take quite a beating in the comments sections of blogs. Why? Because of her professional alignment with Demand Studios. This week, blogger and founder of Writers Worth Day Lori Widmer invited Deb to “to state her case and list her reasons why Demand Studios was a good choice for her.” Like me, Lori is opposed to writer mills and I have huge respect for Lori opening up her blog to give Deb a chance to share her story. Don’t miss this post—or the comments that followed.
Did you read anything that particularly stuck with you this week? Share, please! The floor is yours.

Thank you for the link to Social Media Examiner. I’m glad you liked the article.
And you’ve inspired me to go look at the length of my email subject! Thank you also for sharing the link on writing mills – great read.
I love it when timing works like that. Nicely done, Liz! Good luck with your contest submission.
Thanks for the link to the piece on adverbs. I subscribe to that blog, too, but had yet to read the guest post. It was PERFECT timing for me. Just today I removed an “immediately” out of a sentence that I liked because I got that feedback from a reviewer of a contest submission. The reviewer had the absolute rule of no adverbs. Ha! I’m putting it back in. I think it fits.
