Caine Writes http://sett.com/cainewrites Fiction - Comics - Audio Dramas en-us Tue, 12 Dec 2017 01:09:01 +0000 http://sett.com Sett RSS Generator Franchise http://sett.com/cainewrites/franchise I've been thinking about franchises lately. I'm talking about characters like James Bond, Spenser, or Elric. In this day and age of self publishing, the Kindle, Amazon, and Create Space I'm wondering if its not better for a few writers to gang up and create content all featuring a single character with multiple adventures under a single creative license. This would potentially allow for more over all content, shorter turn times between projects, and better over all content with an aggressive quality control system in place.

These authors could additionally pull together and share in promotion, blogging, social media and other skill sets as well as creating fiction content. Can four to six people make a bigger splash then just one? I wonder...

Writers Write http://sett.com/cainewrites/writers-write That's the most common advice given by writers to those asking for the advice. You have to sit down and do the work. It doesn't matter if its: only 15 minutes a day; only one day a week; a word count; or a page count. Writers write.

Those who want to write...well, are wanna be writers. I know, I've been both.Today marks a new year (my birthday) and with it a renewed commitment to getting in and doing the work necessary to transform my self from a wanna be back into a writer.

There are a ton of reasons, such as me being in a much better place in my life (true by the way), but this is not really the place for that. I'm sure every writer has reasons as to why they can and do write just as every wanna be writer has reasons why they can't and don't write. Mine, I'm sure, are not unique.

What is unique is my voice and the content I create. That's what this blog is about. If you'd like to know more you can look me up all over the internet (my name is pretty unique). I have an author's page on Amazon. I have a Smashwords page. I have a podcast as well...although its being re-branded as I prepare to release new and improved content (more on that later).

Hey, Check Out this New SETT Blog! by Tynan http://sett.com/cainewrites/uid/63276 Hello, and thanks for choosing SETT! The entire staff (all two of us) are now hitting refresh compulsively to see what amazing things you'll write here.

To get you started on that...

This is a sample post, just to show you how things will look. It won't self destruct on its own, so go ahead and delete it when you're done with it.

Creating Posts

To make your own (much better) post, click the "Create New Post" button on the main screen of your blog. If you can't see it now, just click Front Page on the SETT bar at the top.

Customizing the Look

You'll probably want to spruce up your blog a bit-- change the title, description, fonts, colors, and images. To do that, click the gear icon on the SETT bar and choose "Look and Feel".

Your Community Section

The community section is essentially a forum built right into your blog. Your readers can ask you questions there or start their own conversations. If they post something great, you can promote it to the front page by clicking the "Promote" button on it.

To get to the community section, click the Community link on the SETT bar. In our experience, you'll have to explain what it is to you readers a few time before they'll start posting. But once they do, it's really cool!

Speaking of Promoting...

Promoting is a semi-fancy word for moving or copying posts. If you see something on someone else's SETT blog that you like, and they haven't disabled promoting, you can promote it to your own blog and it will look sort of like a guest post. SETT will automatically put a link back to the original site in the byline and make sure that Google gives the original site the credit.

Get started!

That's probably enough yammering for me. Go ahead and play around with your new SETT blog. We hope that you'll find a lot of amazing features that we haven't mentioned in this short intro post. If you have any questions, just email us at service@sett.com.
