I just received my sixth Editor’s Choice award in Suite 101’s Writing & Publishing section. It’s for an article called “Complex Scope of Writing a Novel: Motivation, Intimidation and the Dreaded Writer’s Block” that I posted last week. It’s based partly on what I’ve been learning from the fiction workshop I’m taking and the freewriting I’ve been doing for the class, and partly on my six-month experience with intimidation-caused writer’s block after a major conference I went to when I was first starting out.
The Editor’s Choice Awards are given to one article in each major section each week, for an article that “exemplifies the quality content, excellent presentation, and high standard” that Suite 101 is looking for. Good writing, hopefully, but also good content and good Search Engine Optimization so Google and others can pick it up. SEO has been interesting to learn, and makes for very different articles and especially titles than I’ve been used to. They’re spotlighted by a circled green checkmark wherever the article title shows up on Suite 101. Click here if you want to read it.
