Writer’s Tips – Author’s Toolbox, Scams, Search Engines, Freelance Writing and More!

Hi everyone! Welcome back to my Writing Tips edition. This is the first post I’m sharing of 2020 on tips this year since I was on a winter hiatus. I picked out some posts I found had great information along my blog and newsletter reading, and I think  all writers will find these posts helpful in some way. There’s always something in my tips that you may not need now, but more than likely you will need at some point in your writing career, so you may want to create a folder for yourself in your files or in an app file for future reference. I personally, have all my reference files in the Evernote app, in case you’re looking for a recommendation. (No, this isn’t a sponsored ad, just trying to be helfpful.)
