always encouraged writers to start with article sales. Although some people start out with aspirations
to write a book, I think that is usually a mistake. There is much about writing that you only learn by
doing it, and writing articles helps you put the things you have learned into practice with a quicker
chance for feedback. You learn much about structure, organization, and simply how to put the words
There are many types of articles, and as a writer you need to recognize and understand the different types, and not limit yourself to the obvious. When an editor says they want a feature article or survey article, you will want to know what they are talking about without having to ask. In following blogs you will find a list of different types of articles with a simple description or explanation for each. If any of them catch your interest, seek out some books that will give you more in-depth information on that type and watch for good examples in your reading.
