Ron’s Tip of the Day Coronavirus vs. Writing

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Throughout the week I will share a tip with you. This is an experiment in microblogging. Let me know how I’m doing. Today I am looking at Coronavirus vs. Writing.

How has the Coronavirus altered your life? Did you change your writing habits? Did you stop writing? Let’s take a look at our response.

  • Did You Change Travel Plans?

We took a mini vacation this past weekend but curtailed our traveling after Tuesday. Our travels now consist of stores and doctor’s offices.

  • Did You Change Where You Write?

I get a lot of my ideas for writing sitting in a restaurant or fast-food place or sometimes in my wife’s doctor’s Waiting Room. Today was a Waiting Room. But most of the time it has been a fast food place like McDonald’s. But they’ve closed Dine-in, so that is out.

Part of writing is research, so no I do that at home instead of the Library. But I still research and I still write.

  • Did You Stop Writing?

No. I adjusted. And that is my advice to you. Adjust, don’t stop.

  • What Are Your Future Plans?

Going forward we will be staying informed and calm. With the media in panic mode and emphasizing worst case scenarios, it is hard to remain calm. But as the President said, this too shall pass.

So, going forward my Tip of the Day is Keep calm, Keep informed (use government site not TV), and Keep Writing.

Ron’s Tuesday’s : Tip Using Video

Welcome to Ron’s Tuesday’s Tip. Every Tuesday I will share a tip with you. This week I am looking at Using Video.

I am new at using videos to promote the business. While I’ve developed videos over the past several years, I have little experience using them. So this is not a How To. I’m still learning.

Today I am discussing with you what I am thinking and doing with videos in regard to my writing career and TR Writing Services.

Writing Career

Over the years I’ve looked at YouTube and FaceBook video ads. These are powerful tools and I’m still looking at them. Also I am now taking a closer look at them and one other venue.

This other venue is our website at TR-writingservices.com. Under our Services tab I have just today (March 10, 2020) put out a series of videos entitled It’s Your Business. You’ll find more information below.

My wife and I have discussed me interviewing her about her debut novel Haney Place Secrets. I’m also considering doing other videos about my books. It is all tentative, but I’m a little excited.

TR Writing Services

It’s Your Business is now available on FaceBook and our website TR-WritingServices.com. Located in Videos on Facebook and  under Services on the website. I’ve also uploaded to YouTube, but that needs work.

What’s Next?

I already mentioned our plans. I will be moving slowly to avoid major mistakes. Plus I plan to emphasize Local Marketing as much as is possible.
