Who Wants to Win This Ray Bradbury Mug?

Coffee Mug

I don’t know about you, but this is one of my favorite quotes from a writer. While I have to be honest and say that I am not a huge Ray Bradbury fan (not because I don’t like his work, but simply because I haven’t had the chance to read much of it), this line just hits home at times. When I saw this mug on Etsy, I had a feeling that some of you guys might want to get your hands on it as well. Not only is the design something we can relate to as writers, the mug [Read more…]

Win Codes for miTypewriter App for the iPad

miTypewriter

I am sure that I am not alone in feeling nostalgic about the entire experience of putting words on paper (literally) using a typewriter. As a kid, I would alternate between the desire to daintily tap on the keys and the urge to pound away like a crazed writer. It might be a difficult thing to find real typewriters nowadays, but for those of you who have an iPad, here’s the next best thing: miTypewriter. This app turns your iPad into something like the typewriters of old, and while you won’t have the tactile experience, the looks and sounds certainly [Read more…]

Corridor Robin Parrish

I believe that writers need to continue to improve themselves, and one way of doing that is to read, read, and read some more.

And speaking of fiction, did you know that we have a published fiction writer in our team at Splashpress Media? Robin Parrish is a journalist, blogger, and author. He contributes to our sister sites ForeverGeek and Apple Gazette. He has been so kind as to offer an electronic copy of his latest novel, Corridor, [Read more…]

Win Codes for Chapters – Notebooks for Writing!

iPad App for Writers

What is your most important writing tool? Many years ago, the most common answers would probably have been “notebook” or “notepad” and “pen” or “pencil”. I wouldn’t be surprised if majority of modern answers include laptop, desktop computer, and iPad (or any other tablet for that matter). This is especially true for those of us who use the Internet as the main means of carrying out our work, isn’t it? If you own an iPad, and you would like to have a handy app that will help you write down your thoughts in a more organized way, we have something [Read more…]

Take a Break From Writing [Dr. Seuss Alert!!!]

As freelance writers, it is very easy to get caught up in our own busy worlds schedules. I am sure that you have, more than once, spent more than 10 hours without doing anything but work in front of your screen. While work is good, we also need to remind ourselves that there is more to life than sitting in front of a computer screen. A break every now and then is always a welcome thing.
