VBT-Writers on the Move Is Back!

After a nice long two month hiatus VBT-Writers on the Move is ready for action in February 2011.

As always, VBT-Writers on the Move has a great tour planned with writers and authors who collectively, have tons of writing and marketing experience and information to share. I'll be hosting one of these wonderful authors each month along with my other weekly posts and interviews.

One goal I have and VBT-Writers on the Move is to provide more value packed informational content so you can not only learn about the authors, their books and services, but also pick up tips and advice on writing, ghostwriting, marketing, and more.

So, look over the schedule below. Each day in February a different author and information will be presented. Just follow the schedule and click on the corresponding day. However, don't forget to stop by here each day too. I'll be posting a link to the Writers on the Move stop and some writing tips as well.

Youth doesn't last very long, and it might be better to participate in life awhile before writing from it." 3. Write one page at a time. John Steinbeck said, "When I face the desolate impossibility of writing 500 pages, a sick sense of failure falls on me and I know I can never do it. This happens every time. Then gradually I write one page and then another. One day's work is all I can permit myself to contemplate and I eliminate the possibility of ever finishing." 4. Strive for vigorous writing. Wi…
