When we think of the Internet, we admire the advancements in technology and how life has been made so much easier. We surf the web with ease because in this Information Age, everything is just a click away. It's had advantages and disadvantages. Many have gained employment and shared good information. Unfortunately for Shirley Sherrod that wasn't the case.

The Obama Administration denounced Sherrod and within 48 hours became apologetic along with Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsak.

A quick google search for writing help literally yields millions of results. There are many self proclaimed gurus ready to sell you their “secrets” to success. Of course, these gurus charge a hefty fee. For a new writer the publishing world may seem like Goliath. Spending wads of cash to learn a craft might seem rational. It is not. Writing is indeed a craft. Is it possible for someone who was once unpublished, like yourself, to teach you the craft? The answer is debatable. But writer Julia Cameron offers new comers something special in her book “The Right to Write”.
