Writing Tips by Gary Speer

Tips for writers, musing about writing and life


Hi. I’m Gary Speer. I’m a writer. At this point, most of my writing has been religious journalism and “regular” journalism. Specifically, I spent seven years as news editor of a weekly denominational magazine, and before that seven years as a newspaper copyeditor. Oh, and I’ve spent most of the last 35 years or so doing freelance writing/editing for religious publications. (Yeah, I guess I’m gettin’ old. *sigh*)


That was all then and this is now. Now I’m striving to discern and fulfill just what the Lord has in store for me as a novelist, an online marketer, and a blogger.

Harumpf! Yes. I know that sounds terribly pretentious. Nevertheless, that’s the plan.

Another part of the plan involves much more mundane activities: How to make a few bucks to live on until the great novels are finished and published. So you will find a few marketing links here to Internet merchants. I encourage you to look around and take advantage of any products and services you may find useful on my site. You’ll find some excellent bargains in gifts and collectibles, sports gear, quality furniture, and all-around fun. Just look around and make yourself at home.

I welcome you to this site, and I encourage you to join in the fun — as it develops.
