Before I continue my series on Novel Writing I wanted to update you about Demand Studios. I just finished writing and submitting my first article to them and am now awaiting the editor to review it. Cross your fingers - I hope he doesn't find too many errors! Demand Studios have a very exact format they expect for their articles and it is different from other sites I am currently writing for. It can become very confusing when you are writing for several different sites. At Constant-Content I am free to write about whatever subject I like and use any style I wish as long as it adheres to the rules of grammar. Some people find the editor there to be difficult to get through, but I rarely have a problem unless I have made a small mistake or didn't proofread enough. At Associated Content the rules are very lax and almost anything can be published. Suite101 has a stringent format and they do not want the writer to write to using the words "you" or "your", which I find difficult at times when I am writing directly to the reader. Demand Studios, however wants a professional article but written to the audience, so I can use "you" and "your". Sometimes it gets very confusing!
I am looking forward to seeing what happens with my first article at Demand Studios and will update you on what happens. So far I do like that they direct you in detail as to what they want and how they want it written. It helps make writing for them simpler in a way, because you know what is expected of you. They seem like a very professional site, so far.
If any of you write for Demand Studios, I would enjoy hearing your comments. Many times people are afraid of trying a new site in case the place is not legitimate. It helps to hear from those who have had experience with the site.
P.S. I chose the waterfall picture, not because it is relevant but because I thought it was beautiful and I love tranquility in my life. :)
