Guest Post Guidelines
Procrastinating Writers has been growing every day, and with growth comes change. There are so many unique voices out there, and I want to share them with the world.
Rather than write everything myself, I’m looking for guest posts.
Do you have a writing productivity process that works for you? A motivation tip? A writing tool you love? A piece of writing advice to share? Then I’m looking for you!
If you’re interested in writing a guest post, shoot me an e-mail, or send me a pitch on Twitter (@ProcrastWriter), with your idea and a link to something you’ve written (if you can).
There are some guidelines your post should follow:
- It has to be helpful, informative, educational, etc.There’s no room for posts without a point on this blog. I work very hard to create content that is useful, and relevant to creative writers who are trying to overcome procrastination; I’d appreciate if you’d do the same.
- It has to be proofread. We’re human, so of course mistakes will happen. But what I don’t want to see is a post with typos, missing words, misspellings, etc. Proofread your work. Use spell check. Read it aloud. Have another reader look it over if you can. The occasional mistake is allowed. Poor writing is not.
- Use your voice. As the great Oscar Wilde said, “Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.” Readers want to hear from you, not from you trying to imitate someone else. So use your voice. Write a post that shows how unique and creative you are.
- Be positive. I believe that a positive outlook in life makes all the difference. And that philosophy also spills over into this blog. You’ll never get anywhere as a writer with a negative outlook or attitude.
Guest posting is for you as much as it’s for Procrastinating Writers, so be sure to send a short bio of yourself with your post and feel free to include links to your blog and social media sites. Just please DO NOT include any affiliate links.
I reserve the right to edit any submitted guest post for content, length or format.
I very much look forward to hearing from you and using your guest posts to help creative writers overcome procrastination.
