Everyone at one single time must have been a writer of some kind. If you have not written a big academic presentation, then you must have at least written a simple letter either to a friend, member of your family or your beloved one.I am sure that, the one on the receiving end reading your letter, must have understood its intent quite clearly simply because of your unique way of presenting your points. It is this ability of being able to express yourself explicitly with either an individual or a group of people in writing that is what is called writing skills. The proper use of these writing skills enables you to communicate efficiently and effectively.
There are many people out there who possess this writing potential yet they have failed to pursue it further and explore it to the fullest either due to their lack of interest or to the realisation that, writing as a career will not bring in much in return.
So the role of these series of articles, is help you nurture your once discarded writing talent and explore it to the fullest from the social marketing point of view. Gone are those days whereby people would sit down and start writing purely for entertainment purpose only to receive nothing at the end of the day from the readers’ end but just mere compliments. The twenty first century is an era that has seen good writers and great authors getting big rewards for their fine writing.
Part of the series of these articles are therefore going to help you take a step-by-step writing process and teach you what and how and more importantly when to write, and finally teach you how to research market your work and finally sell your work and get paid for what you have sweated for.
Remember, your writing can be done either on full time basis or short time basis; it all depends on your convenience and time flexibility, all is flexible to suite your requirement and time availability that go alongside with any of your engagement.

You too as a writer, you have your own tools that you would need to carry with you, and among them all, the most important one is your language command-your ability to express yourself, either verbally or in written form.
