Still more to add.
Just trying to keep the momentum.
Posting these helps make the project more ‘real’.
Just came across another writing-to-help-others site:
And in the meantime, here is a nice piece entitled: 7 WAYS TO SUPPORT OTHERS DURING TOUGH TIMES
Plenty more to post.
The project has also spent a bit more time at Letters to Strangers, whose guidelines discourage online images outside of the site itself. (At least, that’s how I’m interpreting it.)
Click here or on the above word cloud for a 90-second run-through of The Hemingway App, an online pair of eyes [creepy, I know] that points out [without browbeating] a writing flaw or two.
Here is an opening sentence I used on another blog…and Hemingway’s feedback. [That hack…I’ve heard he claims to have written The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms.]
You just paste in your masterpiece and out comes the quick but helpful evaluation.
Note: Thanks to websiteplanet.com for reminding me about The Hemingway App and a few other helpful tools.
I never fail to learn new writing strategies when I visit Copyblogger. Just as valuable is the writers’ acknowledgement that writing is hard…followed by helpful approaches to mindset mixed in with a few hacks to jump start our efforts.
The graphic is just the outline of a post by Brian Clark that’s well worth saving. Check it out.
Hope it helps. It should…
When I clicked over to their website, I signed up for the free revision course (see above).
Am hoping it will A. offer some helpful strategies B. nudge me to open some work that needs my attention [i.e. is collecting digital dust].
Hope this help, writers.
Another gem. This one from Alice Florence Orr of podcastreview.org.
I’m most intrigued by Writers, Ink.
Orr’s description: Hosted by three bestselling authors, Writers, Ink will make you feel better about that unfinished manuscript on your flash drive.
As I finish this post, I’m listening to the episode The Benefits of Writing in the Morning.
Hope this help, writers.
Click the above word cloud for a two-minute curation of Stefanie Flaxman’s Be a Bad Writer to Be a Great Writer post on Copyblogger.
While this site is directed at entrepreneurs and content marketing, it is filled with solid advice and strategies for all writers.

Am way behind on adding updates to my ‘goodwill words’ project. Here is today’s contribution. (It’s one thing to write the notes and letters. Posting them is a whole other ballgame. 🤔)
Thanks for visiting.
