Find A Writer

If you can’t write, have tried over and over again and yet your efforts end up in the trash can…..don’t jump off a cliff ! Chill. Relax, take a walk, get some fresh air and decide how to move forward.

  Most People Aren’t Great Writers

Great writers are much like great anythings people do. Some are natural; not many. This is true in every field. Doctors, dancers, actors and landscapers all need to work at their craft to become proficient and maybe great. Writing is no different.

I dance like an avalanche and no amount of training or instruction has or will help me. I am certifiably dangerous on the dance floor. No kidding. My wife loves to dance; has long been a member of a dance team – Studio 34 – here in Rhode Island and SHE IS GOOD!

Over the years I have learned that it is best to insure that there are an abundance of non-dangerous dancers available when we go out and I will, on occasion, volunteer one of them to dance with my wife. You should do the same ….not dance with my wife but rather hire someone to do your writing.

If you have tried and struggled, been repeatedly frustrated by an unco-operative keyboard, then I suggest you do what you do well and farm out the writing. Self torture is ugly and unnecessary. There are plenty of good to great writers ready and able to help you.

AWAI – American Writers & Artists Inc  – of which I am member, has so much to offer! Whether you want to improve your skills or simply leave the frustration behind, AWAI can make your life easier and more enjoyable.

They offer many programs from the beginner to the accomplised level and everything in between. If you want to be a better writer they truly can help. Emails a problem ? Short content a misery and long pieces tortuourous?

You have to choose – either get better or get out of the way and hire someone to help. If your kidney is infected are you going to try over and over again to repair it yourself or maybe you should use a professional kidney repair service (ie a doctor) ! And then move on and do what you do well.

If all else fails and the level of angst is high then reach out to me and we can see if I can help you…..and you can dance with my wife !

    Not everyone is born with a skill to write efficiently. Some people can groom their skills and become better but some don’t just have it in them. One of the best options on how to overcome this is just to hire a professional writer and save yourself the trouble of trying to put your words together in order to form a really good sentence. Why not just focus on what you are good at and leave the writing to those that know how to write. It would save you a lot of time and trouble in the future.

      Hi Jay – My point exactly.  Why wrestle with writing if it’s just not your thing?  Spend your time doing what you do well, hire out what is distasteful or annoying and move forward.

      Thanks Mike

    The American Writers and Artists Inc sounds like a wonderful organization where you can learn and commiserate with other writers or struggling writers. None of us is a born writer (well, maybe there are a few) but we can all learn the basics and with practice get better at it.

    I think you can become proficient through writing and having critiques from others. This is how I learned many styles of writing over the years. Contract writing is much different than writing articles for newspapers, and copy for sales pages is different than email copy.

    Most people are more comfortable writing in one style over another, or perhaps they were only focusing on one or two styles with their work. But no matter, it is a simple adjustment and practice to get skilled at another style of writing. Video script writing is yet another style that online marketers need.

    In my case, I had only written a script a few times while in the military for some promotional videos that we shot for our work, and that was a learning experience. It came down to learning by doing in most cases for me, although from school I did have a good foundation.

    This organization is one I will likely join, as I am not done writing yet, and need to continue to hone any bit of skill I may have at the moment to be more effective in my online business. I do not mind taking some additional courses either. You mention that there are some good ones that AWAI offers. Thanks for the tip!

      Hi Dave – Your reply is appreciated.  You have proven, in your reply, that you are an accomplished writer.  It is a great skill to have and I agree with you, one that can be improved upon with practice.  

      I have enjoyed my association with AWAI and I feel any time spent there is time well spent.

    The process of writing starts in your head. You start thinking, then you try to express this thought in words and finally put these words on a paper. So, if you are able to think about any topic, most probably you will be able to put the thought on a paper. I have done many types of research online on writing. Of course, it is important to know the structure of the sentence, the proper grammar, style, etc. but the most important part of successful writing is delivering the right message. Even if not structured well, if the message is delivered, you made it. Deliver the message the reader will love to read. Evoke interest. You can write online literally about anything you could think of. It is up to you. So, do a little brainstorming, read your words, put them on a paper and .. voila! Your written piece is in front of you.Thus, starting writing is about starting practicing. Write a lot, Practice. Deliver message. The readers will know how to thank you!Bes regards,IgorStay well, market better, convert best!

      Hi Igor – The difficult part of writing for most people is simply to get started.  So I do agree with you that delivering your message is key. It is much easier to write about what you know.  Things tend to flow more naturally when you are comfortable with your subject.

      Thanks for responding – Mike

    Finding a writer is a good opportunity for those who want to outsource this job. Writing for money if you are good in it, another good thing. 

    I don’t have to write long articles on my blogs because these are not that kind of websites, but I received many offers in e-mail and through Fiverr from writers about article writing. I checked AWAI and I will probably use them if I will need help. I bookmarked the site.

    • admin says:

      Thank you for responding.  Awai is a quality group and you’d do well if you use them.  If content is too cumbersome people will give up on the blog and the site.

  5. Igor says:

    Hi there, I read your article and I can totally agree with the statement, that most of the people are not great writers. That is more than true. On the other hand, a lof of people can be copywriters. In the end, rules of SEO will make them successful. I didn’t know about the existence of AWAII. I have to check it, and try to nail my skills 🙂

    • admin says:

      Thanks for replying Igor. – I agree with you that there are many ways to improve one’s posts but if the wording is choppy and uneven you’ll lose your connection with your audience.  

      If it’s worth doing then it’s worth doing well.

      Thank You – Mike

    Great post and good info.

    Luckily for me I don’t need a writer, since I’ve found out that is actually my talent. 

    Now for some people it is understandable that they need one. 

    I know that you can use platforms to find one, I would suggest trying Fiverr, they don’t ask much and I think there are good ones out there. 

    Anyway, you give good tips and you will help people! 

    • admin says:

      Hey Emmanuel – If you got it, you got it!  It’s kind of like a guy that is great with auto repair; if he has engine trouble he knows what to do and can fix it. Not wasting his time or money on outsourcing.  If, however, if my car breaks down it would be foolish and dangerous for me to try and fix it.  Call a pro, make sure the brakes work.

      Same with writing.  Thanks – Mike

    I always wanted to be a good writer and I have been seeking for posts and reviews to which I can go through to learn how I can improve my writing skill, English is a language I learnt from school so it becomes somehow difficult to express myself while using this language, but I believe that I have to enroll to the American writers and artists Inc to learn more on writing skills. Do they charge to be a member?

    And if they charge please enlighten me about the procedures to follow, I don’t want to miss such a great opportunity that may help me in the rest of my life. Looking forward to learn more from you post.

    Thank you,

    From Joy.

      Hello Joy – Thanks for responding.  I admire anyone, like you, that can communicate clearly in two or more languages.  

      As for AWAI please follow the link in my piece and visit their site. I can’t tell you about them nearly as well as they can themselves. They have so many offerings, many on a trial basis and all are 100% satisfaction or money back. 

      If you have specific questions or areas you need help in please reach out to me.

      Thank You – Mike

    This is a wonderful article! 

    I do get writer’s block and at times a complete lack of interest in writing, and owning my own website, that does not bode well. Thats like going to your doctor and finding a note on the door, gone fishing. lol

    I adore your analogy of your dancing to an avalanche, that is priceless! I would tell you to hang in there and keep practicing, but it sounds like someone could get hurt lol.

    What is the membership fee for AWAI? This sounds like a platform that would be very good for me to be a part of. I learn new things every day, and am open to learn more about writing, and having writers to either hire or bounce ideas off sounds like something I need in my life and for my website.

    Thanks for this great article, short and sweet and to the point.

    Stacie

      Hi Stacie – Thanks for responding and if we meet, I’ll not ask you to dance!  Writers’ block is so common and very frustrating.  Getting away from the project for a while is usually a good remedy or if it just keeps eating at you – hire it out or ask a friend to help.

      I’ve been asked more about AWAI; what and how they do things.  I think it best to refer you back to my link in the piece I wrote as they can best tell their story and explain their many programs. I know they offer free trials, and every program they have comes with a 100% money back guarantee. I am a member of two of their programs – $49 and $19 monthly and am very happy.

      Since being with them I have actually made some money with my writing!

      Thank You – Mike    ps-  For anyone reading – get Grammarly – it’s free and makes us all look smarter!

    Hi

    I am totally agree and have same opinion with you about writing issue. Every writer needs a passion and a lot of patience for writing quality content. In this modern digital trend, there is no alternative of writing quality content. But since there is no instant result of writing, many people are not taking it seriously. More over, all are not capable of writing good content. I believe your article will help them. I think hiring professional writer is a good alternative for busy people. Thanks for sharing this helpful tips.

    • admin says:

      Hi Mzakapon – We are in agreement. Using a copywriter not only removes the task from your to-do list but should, in fact, do for you exactly what you had hoped for – increase traffic.
