The Writer Runs This Show [SlideShare]

We have the technology.
We have the business skills.
We have virtual ink by the barrel.
The writer runs this show.
We’re the ones who command the attention.
We’re the ones who create the engagement.
We’re the ones who influence what people think and do.
The writer runs this show.
We won’t toil in obscurity waiting for a green-light.
We won’t submit to “creativity” by committee.
We won’t accept meager pay while others cash in our copyright.
The writer runs this show.
If you won’t read until your eyes blur.
If you won’t write more to write well.
If you won’t invest the blood, sweat, and tears . . .
Then you’ll have to work with real writers.
And pay those writers exceptionally well.
If they have the time, that is.
Because the writer runs this show.
Your words are the foundation of all online content
The words you write form the foundation of all online content, whether those words become a blog post, podcast, or video.
