Off a Duck’s Back

October 20th, 2014

Ducks-blogHow are you with criticism? Must admit, my skin gets pretty thin sometimes. It’s silly, I know. I should be more mature. It’s just … when I’ve been working on something for days, or weeks, going over and over it, all I really want to hear is ‘Yeah, that’s great.’ But how often does that happen?

Could Writing a Novella be Your Way Forward?

October 18th, 2014

Thanks to Sneha for last Friday’s blog post. I was listening to a programme recently where writers were complaining that they were no longer simply allowed to get on with their writing – instead they had to spend valuable time promoting themselves via social media. I can see their point but, unfortunately, it just doesn’t work that way anymore. Read the rest of this entry »

How to Promote Yourself Through Social Networks

October 10th, 2014

Sneha-Tipnis_Writers-Bureau_Recent-photo-1As a freelance writer, I thought of promoting myself online i.e. through social networks like Google +, LinkedIn and my blog http://goldentipsmumbai.blogspot.in/. So, I would like to share the experience of this process with you all.

If you too are registered on these social networks, then you can surely promote yourself in the same way I did. And here’s how I’m still doing it! I share my blog posts via a link on Google + with my personal contacts like colleagues, friends etc. I also consciously share my blog posts with other writers who are in my Google + circles i.e. a network of people on Google.  Furthermore, I also email the links of these blog posts to those who aren’t active on Google +. As a result, your creative content (blog posts or articles) are viewed by people in your circles. In addition to this, you are digitally known to a plethora of people starting from colleagues, friends in general to like-minded writers, worldwide, in particular. Read the rest of this entry »
