Want To Work From Home?

When I first quit work to write full-time, I had a lot of people say to me that they couldn't work from home and would go crazy if they couldn't go to work every day and be around others. They thought that being home alone every day would be too much for them.

Fast forward to this Coronavirus situation and now everyone wishes they worked from home, because  many of them can't go to work or have to stay home and self-isolate.

It's this that I find the easiest to cope with. As a writer I find it easy to stay home. Sometimes I don't talk to other people for days. When I'm working in a window of inspiration, which can last for days at a time, I barely even talk to my husband. I have a separate office at home and I can sit in here for hours and lose track of time. Sometimes I only know it's night time when I look up and see that it's dark outside.

And to be honest, even when I'm not writing, I'm a quite the shut-in anyway. I don't socialise much, I avoid get-togethers, I cringe when I'm invited to a 'party', I stay away from large gatherings as much as I can and I discourage people from visiting me at home or phoning me unless it's important.

So this situation of being advised to stay at home as much as possible poses little to no change in my day-to-day way of life.

In fact, if I did have to do self-imposed isolation, I'd happily use the time to write more and earn more and I doubt that anything would feel different.

So while more and more people are currently wishing they worked from home, I'm already doing it.

Join me by signing up to receive my free ebook, Writing For Cash, and learn more about how to write more and earn more and enjoy working from home.

More Writers Are Writing More

For over a week I've been away in the North Queensland which is the state where I live. My home is in the Southeast so it's sub-tropical here, but in the North it's tropical and humid. I spent days just sweating.

Just before I went away I set up a new subscription service for my website, https://ruthiswriting.com, and offered emails about how to write more and earn more plus a free ebook for new subscribers to show them even more ways to earn money from writing.

When I returned home 2 days ago, I was pleased to see that I'd had many new subscribers so I know that I'm helping them all to write more and earn more, which is what being a writer is all about.

And during this time, the Coronavirus panic began with people stockpiling toilet paper (of all things) and many people worrying about becoming ill and having to stay at home and not be able to go to work.

But it's not such a tragedy for writers when we have to stay home. Working from home is what we do all the time and it can be quite isolating, so being alone is normal for us.

Happily, it gives us more time to write which means we can earn more money as well as gaining satisfaction and getting more reading done too. I was happy to find that my new Writing Magazine had been delivered while I was away because I have plenty of time to read it while I self-isolate. I'm not ill, I just want to stay home and do more writing.

So if you find that you can't go to work or that you want to use your locked-in time to work from home as a writer or you want to write more than you ever have done before, now is the perfect time to do it.

I say that when life gives you lemons, stay home and get more writing done.

Click the link below and sign up for my emails and I'll send you the free ebook, Writing For Cash, so that you can stop worrying and start writing.

I also have a new free ebook that I'll be adding to my website soon, but my subscribers will be the first to know so that they can get their own copy long before everyone else, so it's another good reason to sign up now.

This Free eBook Will Help You Write More And Earn More

It's been a crappy week (or closer to fortnight really) for me regarding my online business.

It all started a couple of weeks ago when my computer kept shutting down for what seemed like no apparent reason and would then refuse to start again, and sometimes when it did, it would soon crash again.

I was just staring at the black screen of death for hours trying everything I could to get my computer to restart.

I used my other computer, my Mac Book Air, to Google the problem and find different ways to deal with it, but alas, it was no good.

So with heavy heart I took it to the local Apple store and left it there for what I thought would be only a day or too. But that turned into over a week because they had to order a part which, they told me, was delayed in arriving because of the Corona Virus outbreak. Thankfully, so far, that is the only way this virus has touched my life.

But I had no way to publish anything apart from a couple of posts on this blog that I did via my other computer. I couldn't check my emails or anything else. But at least I could still write. Thankfully, my new novel I'm writing, I've been typing up (I handwrite my books) on my other computer which I still had. So I got plenty of writing done, but not much else.

Now my computer is back and I've been busy setting up a new email service using the company Get Response. And yesterday I spent all afternoon and evening setting up the account with signup forms and preparing the free ebook that all new subscribers receive.

The ebook is called Writing For Cash and it's full of so much information on many of the different ways you can start earning money from your writing straight away, including how to earn up to $100 or more for just 5 minutes writing.

Not only that, but once you sign up you'll receive so much information about how to write quickly and how to earn more money from your writing than you've ever done before.

I reckon that this ebook and all the other information you're going to receive will give you all you need to start writing fast and earning money.

So if you want to take your writing to the next level, sign up now using the link below.

It doesn't matter what kind of writing you want to do whether it's writing books, ebooks, articles, magazine articles, novels, short stories, blog posts and more. I reckon I've got you covered.

I retired my email list several years ago to concentrate on my writing and to deal with other issues, but now I've revived it and it's back better than ever.

And when you visit my site, you'll also notice the new and improved design.

You see, I really have been busy because I'm serious about helping you to write more and earn more.

It's free to sign up to get your free ebook and learn how to write more, so you've got nothing to lose and so much writing to do.

And it all starts right now by clicking the link below.

Free Text Editor

For a few years now I’ve been using a free text editor called Grammarly, which I like very much. But now I also use another one that is useful in different ways.

Grammarly is great because it picks up on misused words and misspelled words and bad punctuation.

But now I’ve also started to use another free text editor that is just as useful as Grammarly but in different ways.

This text editor is called Hemingway, and the way it works is you copy and paste your writing into it, and it highlights what it thinks is passive voice as well as unnecessary adverbs and clunky, hard-to-read sentences. It can also word count and well as counting letters, characters, sentences, and paragraphs.

It’s brilliant at picking out passive voice which is always better to change to active voice, as in changing “he started running” to “he ran.” 

The ability for it to pick up on hard-to-read sentences is also extremely useful.

But the only downside to it is that it not only tells you to get rid of unnecessary adverbs, but all adverbs. Yep, it seems that the Hemingway text editor doesn’t like adverbs at all. 

For example, if you write, “blared loudly” it will tell you to remove the adverb “loudly.”

But if you write, “said jokingly” it will tell you to get rid of “jokingly” which is something you’d probably want to keep. Ironically, when I ran this article through Hemingway, it highlighted the words jokingly and loudly and said to omit them.

I could also say that another downside is that it may think some of your sentences have too many complex phrases or long sentences, but that all depends on what grade of readability your audience has. If you’re writing to someone who has a good understanding of the complex issue you're discussing, then there is nothing wrong with using long sentences, etc.

But you can use your judgment of your own work. Either way, the Hemingway text editor is great for picking up on errors you might not see in your own writing and it costs nothing to use.

The Complete Online Course is Now Free to Download

The Complete Online Course - Learn HTML Code - Free to download
The Complete Online Course is a huge ebook that teaches you how to write HTML code.

It’s a course I wrote years ago after having learned how to do it myself.

The course I learned from cost me several hundred dollars and I sold The Complete Online Course for less than $50 so it was a real bargain, especially considering that it also teaches how to make money online.

But now time has passed and things have changed so I’ve now made The Complete Online Course a free download so that it can help anyone who needs it.

And although some of the information in it is out of date now, most of it is still relevant and if you use it, it will guide you from idea, to writing your own HTML code, creating web pages and putting your own website online.

It’s great for anyone who doesn’t understand HTML code or how webpage design works.
It’s a huge PDF ebook and you can download it for free, with no opt-in required at http://cheritonhousepublishing.com/books/NOC.html.

And once you’ve downloaded it you can do whatever you want with it because I’m relinquishing my copyright of it too, so it’s yours to do whatever you want with it.

Enjoy.

I've Brought the Dead Back to Life - And It's Free!

Last year I began a free series of emails and free ebooks about how to write articles and ebooks quickly and how it could help you to earn more money.

I created them because I put links in them to a couple of writing products that I was selling as an affiliate.

I actually owned the products myself and really liked them so I agreed to help market them.

Everything was going fine until I hit a huge snag...

15 Best Places To Find Free High Res Images

image courtesy of stuart miles FreeDigitalPhotos.net
If you've got a blog or a website, you'll know how important it can be to find a good image for your post.

But even though you want to find free images you still want them to be high resolution so that they look good.

Well I found website that lists 15 places where you can find free high res images for your blog or website.

You can find free images by doing a Google search but Google doesn't always provide you with the best sites because they prefer to send you to websites that contain premium stock photography, at a premium price, so many of the free image sites probably won't show up in a search.

But the following website has a list of 15 websites that offer free images.

http://www.labnol.org/internet/find-free-images/24990/

The list also includes a bit of information about each website telling you what you can and cannot do with the images.

My personal place to get my images for this blog is FreeDigitalPhotos.net and my favourite image person is Stuart Miles (also on that website). I once subscribed to his RSS feed and found that he publishes about 50 new images a day so I had to unsubscribe to stop them coming so often. But he sure is a hard worker.
