10 Tips for Becoming a Better Writer
With these tips I’m not saying you’re going to become a great, New York Times Bestselling author but I will say these tips will and hopefully help you become a better writer.
- Read. Read everything you can read. Pay attention to the wording and how it’s written. Read books in the genre that you are going to write in. See how the words flow together.
- Take writing classes. There are some that are online and their cost is minimal to free. Some classes last from one week to one month.
- Join writing groups. Being able to bounce ideas off other writers can be a good tool.
- Get your work professionally edited. True, you can edit your work yourself, but even editors have editors. Pay attention to the comments and remarks that the editor makes. They’re not out to hurt you but to enhance you.
- Have someone not close to you read your work. Friends and family will be willing to read your work but will they give you an honest unbiased opinion? Sometimes yes, and sometimes no. Seek someone who is not close to you to read your work.
- Read writing books. The book, “Word Magic for Writers” is a good book. Make that book, the dictionary and the thesaurus your best friends.
- Don’t over use words. That’s where the thesaurus comes in. The thesaurus gives you another word for an overly used word.
- Don’t force your work. If the words are not there, go do something else. Step away from your writing; go for a walk; watch a movie; spend some time with family; read a book that is not in your genre, anything but force your words. All writers get writers block.
- If you need a muse, find one. It’s good to talk about your ideas or just talk about the genre you’re writing in with someone.
- In all, find fun in your writing. Enjoy what you do. Don’t let anyone deter you from your passion.
Intimate Moments by Jeané Sashi
Genre: erotic romance
About Intimate Moments:
What do you do when you have not one, but three handsome men vying for your affection and attention? The answer is not so simple for Tonju. She has to make a decision between two men from her past and one man that has currently wanted into her life and wants to be her future. The question is, "Which man will she choose?”Source: Info in the About Intimate Moments was from the press kit from the publicity team.
Trying to find love was not easy, especially when you're a successful, attractive lady in your thirties looking for a relationship of sustenance, after being divorced for five years. Tonju was torn between three men vying for her attention.
One was an unhappily married man from her past who was willing to let go of everything in order to be with her. The second man was her ex-husband; he never stopping loving her and has realized his mistakes and will do what has and needs to be done to get her back. The third man was someone she met on a girl's a night out. So far he has good qualities, but there's still an air of mystery about him.
Could either of these men be the love Tonju's looking for? She has reservations; some good and some not-so-good about the three men, she had completely broken all ties with one, was leaning closely towards another one, and was looking sideways at the other one. Could Tonju truly be experiencing love?

The J Spot by Jeané Sashi
Genre: erotic romance
About The J Spot:
The J Spot is not what you think it is. It's not the type of nightclub that is coming to your mind either. Once inside the club, you will see the maturity.Source: Info in the About The J Spot was from the press kit from the publicity team.
Kevin in the type of man that every woman that he comes in contact with want to take home, keep him and possess him. Does he let that happen?
Women flocked to him like bees to honey. They fall to his feet at the sight of him. As he handed them their drinks, they left their panties as a tip. Although he was aggressive he was still shy and flattered by all the attention he received from the ladies. He couldn't understand why all the attention, he was just like any average male with a large sexual appetite, and had his way of giving the ladies pleasure.
But, there was only one lady that seemed to have caught his eye. He couldn't seem to get her out of his mind. Her sexiness had him off balance. He saw other women, he had even gone on a date or two but his mind was gravitating towards one. Will she pay attention to him or will she tell him to go to hell?
What is it that he is feeling! Or is it he wanted what he felt he couldn't have? Was he out of her league?
