Writing is 3/4 of the Game Today

The Vision Forum’s No-Hate event was featured in The Dallas Morning New’s NeighborsGo section. If you want a feature, you’d better be able to write it!

Sunday School Isn't What It Used to Be

My many years of torturously boring Sunday School lessons made this story a joy to write, “Sunday School Isn’t What It Used to Be” on NeighborsGo.com, www.neighborsgo.com/index.php?page_id=1000&site_page_id=5&post_id=70628

“Eat Your Vegetables” of professional skills

Good writing and proper spelling are the “eat your vegetables” of professional skills. Job search hints always emphasize writing and spelling and college applications require excellent writing skills, but I think they are tremendously undervalued in the general culture. Schools want math and science teachers, not writing teachers. Winning the Spelling Bee [...]

Thinking with Words

My son’s teacher recently told me that my son’s ability to “think with words” was outstanding. My knee-jerk immediate thought was “How else would one think but with words?” But there are several ways to think – spatially like engineers and architects, visually like painters, aurally like musicians, emotionally like most [...]

Martin Luther, The Reformation & Other Everyday Things

It’s not every day I have the chance to write about Martin Luther, The Reformation, and the organ building tradition in Northern Germany! Writing this story about The Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration’s new organ was a treat.

Network in the morning, client in the afternoon!

Network in the morning, new client in the afternoon!!!   I know networking is the way to go, but rarely does it pay off so quickly.  I have to remind myself every day that networking is a system, eight to ten calls every other day is my goal. Sometimes it can seem like a long [...]

Working with Photographers

Coordinating a photographer with your story idea or event can be key to receiving coverage in the media. Good pictures help tell the story and interest the readers.

Hire a photographer if you can. If not, recruit a volunteer, or learn how to take decent pictures yourself.

Writing the editorial

Writing editorials and opinion columns requires several skills at once – the ability to write succinctly, maybe even entertainingly, tightly structured, and in the voice of your client. This leads us to perhaps the most important skill after basic writing skills, being a careful and intuitive listener.

I Do Sports, Too.

I do sports, too.  As a girl, I lived in West Texas where football is King, so football is ingrained in my soul.  I still have my Rankin Red Devils memorabilia.

Capital Campaigns – Collateral Development

The Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration launched a capital campaign to raise funds for their new South Building.  Miller Consulting, in partnership with Global Images Design, developed a Campaign Communication Plan that communicated key messages through a series of postcards mailed to the parish members and posters mounted throughout the campus.

Feature Writing

Feature writing offers a chance to more fully explore an issue and to tell a compelling a story. It’s also a chance to bore the reader after the first page if attention is not paid to story arc.

Interviewing and Article Writing

Newsletters can help cement team spirit within a company, an organization, or among its constituents, but only if the newsletter communicates news people want to read. People want to read interesting stories about other people. Interviewing and writing these stories is time-consuming and often gets shunted aside for more generic content. [...]

Communicating with the Donor

An organization’s good work can often be best told through individual stories. Finding these stories and communicating them to prospective donors and current donors is key to ongoing and successful fundraising campaigns.

Editing

A skilled editor can ensure a readable, informative, and useful written communication, helping to turn good writers into even better ones and weak writers into stronger ones. Even the best writers benefit from good editing..

Or, we could end up with sentences such as, “As a matter of fact, to tell the truth and [...]
