Although ghostwriting has been the initial focus behind this Samurai Writer’s foray into freelance writing, I’ve also been active as a copywriter for both my own products and services, as well as for a small number of clients.
Probably at some future point I will specialize in a particular ‘writing area’ but, for now, there’s a lot to enjoy and learn in ghostwriting and (direct response) copywriting.
And, as with any intention to reach a level of mastery in selected subjects, it often pays to hang around those who have been there and got the t-shirt etc.
That’s why I’ve tonight joined this
copywriting discussion board (2016-12 update: broken link. Site down?)and plan to ramp up my knowledge and contribute where appropriate. The Internet’s a beautiful tool when many minds can share and discuss on common, friendly ground.
So if you’re a new copywriter, or even a business owner curious about what copywriters get up to (and look like haha!), come on over and check out the
copywriting board (copywritingboard.com ; broken link as of 2016-12-13).
Education is truly a never ending path towards Mastery.

PS – Oct 2011 Update:
The ‘Copywriting Board’ site’s still up but I haven’t visited for a while. My focus is on writing b2b case studies and white papers for the computer networking industry.
