• Looking at Other Industries to Predict the Future of Publishing One of the things that makes Mark Cuban such a good business man is that he has not siloed himself into any one form of entertainment. He owns Magnolia Pictures, the Dallas Mavericks, and Landmark Theatres, and appears on Shark Tank as an investor in potential start-ups. With hands in many different pots, including Hollywood, […] Monica Leonelle 4 responses February 6, 2013
  • How To Consistently Write 900-1200 Words Per Hour Note: Since writing this post, I have made additional tweaks that have taken me to 4000+ words/hour on some days. On an average day, I easily write between 2800-3400 words per hour. One of the best ways to get your book done is to improve the number of words you can write per hour. While […] Monica Leonelle 6 responses March 12, 2012
  • Digital hoarding, emotional clutter, and the consequences of not moving on “I gave him the wedding album,” my mom tells me anxiously over the phone, like a child who’s about to get a scolding. “You did what?” I stew in silence for several exasperating minutes as my mom explains. At the end, she sighs with frustration. “Are you mad at me.” It’s not a question, but […] Monica Leonelle 5 responses July 11, 2011

  • Exposing the Hidden Truths and Empty Promises of Blog Networks There are many resolutions I have for Twenty Set for 2009, but the first was to quit all the blog networks I was in. I belonged to two blog networks and was allowing one other site to syndicate my content, and the truth is I'm just not getting value from any of these websites anymore. In fact, I probably never was. So the first point of this post is to tell you that for 2009, the only place to read my content will be right here on Twenty Set, with a select number of guest posts on other sites. The second point of the post is to start a conversation about how blog networks actually add value to individual writers. My argument, having belonged to blog networks and then worked at a company whose main product was a blog network, is that they don't add value to the writers. Many Twenty Set readers belong to the blog networks that I just quit (and maybe other networks), however - so I'm curious if I'm missing something. I'd really appreciate the feedback in the comments section on the following points. Monica Leonelle 64 responses January 9, 2009
