Why Authors Should Never Bin Their Accumulated Research

Glasgow, Scotland United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 08, 2006 -- It happened to this author just recently...

He was reviewing a mountain of files containing research material gathered over the years; years when he was churning out one book after another, articles galore for offline and online magazines, fulfilling his obligations on syndicated newspaper columns.

He thought about binning a huge chunk of it - but then he thought again - there was enough stuff here to fill a directory.

And so he set about creating one, splitting it into a myriad of sections, and sub-sections with stuff like...

  • Articles
  • Fiction
  • Non-Fiction
  • Poetry
  • Theatre
  • Film
  • Television
  • Contests

ARTICLES - He'd written himself and had published; articles he'd collected from other writers of note.

FICTION - Reams and reams of useful data that had contributed to his published novels and novellas.

NON-FICTION - Even more relating to the string of titles published under his own name since 1995.

POETRY - A genre he hadn't tackled so far but still have a yen to master.

THEATRE - His ongoing passion whether writing about it or not.

FILM - An even deeper passion that finally produced a book that has been accepted for publication in 2007.

TELEVISION - Masses and masses of material that resulted in an ill-fated televised sitcom pilot that bombed out of sight.

CONTESTS - Although he'd never personally entered a writing contest he had amassed a pile of data a mile high.

And so this author thought again...

He converted his bulging directory into his very first membership website.

Whether this accumulated bric-a-brac will be of interest to every aspiring author, playwright, poet, screenwriter, etc, the author has no idea - but that doesn't matter because he won't be charging for access.

Writers who would like to see how this author adapted his research into a membership website might want to visit the one featured in the resource box...
