Article writing is very much like storytelling for business. When you tell a story you want your audience to pay attention to you. You hope they love your story. Read on to find out how to put your story into your articles. If you do people will read them.
You write articles because it’s one of the few ways to drive traffic to your website for free. It’s free advertising. Make sure you write them well.

If you have a nagging case of writer’s block there are several things you might do. Most writers have one or two methods that have helped them in the past.
Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t. Here are a few thoughts from several famous writers about that soulless malady.
“What I try to do is write. I may write for two weeks ‘the cat sat on the mat, that is that, not a rat.’ And it might be just the most boring and awful stuff. But I try. When I’m writing, I write. And then it’s as if the muse is convinced that I’m serious and says, ‘Okay. Okay. I’ll come.’” — Maya Angelou

How Many Stories Do You Have Saved Up?
You probably have written a few stories if you are reading this article. Do you feel good about them?
I know many writers who make and insist on sticking to their schedule and write at the same time. I’m not one of those. I meander. Not being ready to write keeps me from engaging. I just can’t draw the pen back, so to speak. Having so many interests saves me from those moments and keeps me busy researching and then when the time is right then its writing time.
When writing short stories, money comes up all the time for me. Should I sell my stories? What about you? Do you see your stories? Is it working well for you? Let us know with a comment here.
Does thinking about trying to sell or make a living off of your writing make you feel nervous? It does me. My stories are so personal. I put so much or myself in there and then I’m vulnerable.
There are a ton of websites talking about the many ways to sell your short stories. Many of the ways we can get them published pay little to nothing though.
Sometimes I Need a Little Help Writing Short Stories. Like a Voice Recorder.
I wonder if you are like me and have had what you considered to be a great idea for a story but you were driving, or in a place you can’t write or type, and by the time you get somewhere that you can, that thought is gone. Long gone. That lost thought might have been key to writing short stories that sell or give you what you need to complete one. But What if,,,
I feel like it is my job to do all the work of searching and testing claims made about writing short stories. I want to do that for you so you can learn and grow as much as you wish. I’m sure your time is valuable and or limited. I won’t waste it.
