In order to give you some insight about writing I thought I’d start writing articles about the process of writing novels as well as offer information about my experiences. These articles are not meant to be anything except a glimpse into how I approach writing.
As you know, we all have different styles and methods for accomplishing our goals. There is not usually only one right way. Our roads towards our goals are unique and writing a novel is different for everyone so what works for me, may not work for you. That doesn’t mean you won’t accomplish that goal.
I am also a copywriter and will be writing articles about copywriting as well. There are so many ways to become a writer and my interests are so varied that when I’m not working on a novel, ebook or a copywriting project, I am learning new things. I enjoy sharing what I have learned and do that by writing articles.
This is just the basic process of writing. Whether you are writing articles, writing novels, writing stories, a business brochure or a newsletter, you’ll want to include these basic steps.
Of course, some projects require more of one or more of the steps or even additional steps. Don’t be afraid of it. It’s a process and it should be challenging, invigorating and satisfying. If it is, then you know you’re doing it right!
"A cardinal rule of writing to follow is, never write your own back cover copy. Why? You’re too close to the work and can’t be objective. Enter Maria Pease.
I contracted her services to write the back cover copy for my upcoming novel, Crossing Lives. The only caveat was, my manuscript was nowhere near finished. Despite this obstacle, Maria took on the project.
Most copywriters won’t touch this type of project unless you can furnish them with a copy of the entire work to be summarized.
In a span of three weeks, with just a few chapters and handful of character sketches to go by, she was able to craft a masterful blurb that captured the essence of the story I’m trying to tell.
Maria communicated with me on consistent basis and took a personal interest in my project. This was a pleasant surprise. Most “work for hire” is cold, aloof, and distant.
I highly recommend Maria Pease for all your copywriting needs."

“Thank you very much for the job well done! I hope we will have an opportunity to work together again in the future."
Timo Kestrel - Website Owner, UK
"I needed a website for my new practice and I had no time or skills to do it myself. Thank goodness I met Maria through a business associate.
She had my site up and running in no time. She even gave me some suggestions on how to make some affiliate income along with the service I provide.
If you need a writer who listens to what you want and gives great ideas on how to improve it, call Maria. You won't be disappointed."

"Maria has developed a business brochure and numerous newsletters and has been able to interpret the information I give her into professional writing pieces that communicate to my clients the value of my product.
Maria’s professional knowledge has played a large part in portraying my
company in a professional light.
Maria Pease has been a pleasure to work with and I feel she would be an asset to any company in need of a commercial writer."
Lisa Beach -The Box Wrap Company
"I needed to update most of our marketing and sales materials including a brochure, a couple of sales letters, tips sheets and some in-house communications. Maria took care of it all and did a beautiful job on all of it. If you are looking for a capable, and enjoyable copywriter to work with, you can stop looking, Maria is your girl."

Maria is a pleasure to work with, always energetic and enthusiastic about the task at hand. She continues to come up with fresh, new, innovative ideas to help move my business forward.
