What Can I Do For You Today?

25 Jul

book coverHappy Friday my peeps!  How ya doing?  All is well here after a pretty busy week.  I managed to somehow write about 3,000 words in my new novel, which is now on its third working title.  And I kept customers happy and managed to support a few of you along the way. Not a bad week any old way you slice and dice it.

What can I do for you today?  That’s not a rhetorical question.  I want  to help you…but first…the quote of the day to get us started.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

Unity is strength… when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.

Mattie Stepanek
I believe those words, and if you are a writer, you should believe them as well.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY

There are only a few million of us who do what we do.  That number may seem large, but compared to 7.2 billion, it’s a drop in the ocean my friends.  We need each other.  Only another writer can understand what it takes to keep pouring out our heart and soul with no promise of reward….just doing it day in, day out, because you love what you do and you have a voice inside your head spurring you on.

I cannot make it without you, and I’m telling you right now, you can’t make it without your other writing friends.

So, what can I do for you?  Would you like me to guest blog for you?  Would you like me to highlight your work on my blog, or interview you for an article?  Can I link your work to one of my articles?

We build this business one contact at a time, and hopefully those contacts will spread the word to others, and so it goes.  Word of mouth advertising is the best advertising there is, and if we all support each other our businesses will grow.

So…what can I do for you?

WRITER OF THE DAY

I can never remember who I’ve highlighted in the past, but I’m going to give a shout out to my friend Mari because I just love her blog and her sense of humor.  You can find her blog right here following this link. I encourage you all to give her support.

CONTEST OF THE DAY

Another poetry contest right here.  Submission fee of $25 with first prize of $2,000 and a deadline of October 15th.

THAT’S IT FOR THIS WEEK

I’ll be guest blogging on my friend Cyndi’s blog next week and I’m excited about it.  Remember what I said…what can I do for you…and what can you do for other writers?

Have a great weekend. You earned it.

    Today I turned the last assignment needed to finish my BA in Liberal Arts! I am so excited!

    I look forward to your guest blog, Bill. What can you do for me? Keep me in mind when someone is looking for an editor or has too much of a work overload or can’t take on any more clients.

    I’ve been helping a friend I made through LinkedIn who is trying to launch a freelance career. His writing needs some work, so I’ve been giving him tips, critiques, and pointing him in the right direction to learn about SEO, online writing, etc and he’s very grateful. It feels good to know I’m of value to an aspiring writer.

    Now, I’m going to throw it back atcha. What can I do for you, Bill? 🙂

    • Billybuc July 25, 2014 at 4:22 pm #

      Sha, you do it every single day. Your support and friendship is all I need. Thank you my dear and I will keep you in mind for sure.

    One of the most powerful principle concerning men in this orbit, “unity, teamwork, collaboration ” – given to be taken advantage of. How often is being applied seriously? The greatest ‘philosopher’ ever walk on this planet of ours made ‘ unity ‘ statement even more exclusive ” … that if two of you will agree in the earth about any matter which they will request, it will be done for them from the presence of my Father…” What do “we” do by knowing them besides being rhetorical ? I am guilty of it- perhaps only me; you want to help, I need to be helped…and tomorrow will be just the same… except for my fellow-warrior, a friend of over 4o years, whose hand I was holding two days ago while the nurse softly spoke the words ” he is dying”, and she was so right , my friend is not with us anymore…
    It has taken me by surprise ; we have planned to spend at least a week this Summer together, working on long-terms plans… He was speaking the same native language of mine, and he got me involved with HP…
    You my friend has just ask me a while ago if I am relaxing a bit from time to time ?! Not enough, however yesterday my statement , ” this is my last Job”, stands. I have to quit this nonsense , and learn to relax, because many people can do what I am doing now, while what my mission’s assignment is no one ever would be able to accomplish,- the voices in my head are…
    Well, good night Bill, and have a blessed weekend.

      Michael my friend, your pain shows in your words, and I am so sorry for your loss. Sending you a hug of friendship across the miles. I wish you peace….and perhaps this is a time of reflection, and from that reflection perhaps needed change will come.

      Peace be with you my friend
