Created by David Whitley, a successful freelance travel writer with articles published in magazines and newspapers around the world, 1001 Travel Writer Tips looks to be a great resource to anyone considering a career in freelance, and in particular, travel writing. Actually, it looks like it's going to be a great resource for freelance writers at all levels of expertise.

It's a new blog, so there are only a few posts so far:

#2 Know Your Competition

#3 Know your place in the greater scheme of things.

#4 Don’t get too precious

#5 Find the editor’s real e-mail address

#6 Spell the editor’s name correctly

#7 Exchanging contacts with other travel writers

#8 Writing about where you live

Only 993 to go...

You can be sure I'll be stopping by every day to get my travel writing tip of the day. Sure hope you'll join me...

In fact, I'll make it easy for you by posting a link each day to the latest tip over on sidebar under 'Daily Travel Writing Tip'.

David, by the way, was the very first travel writer that Write to Travel interviewed.

Thanks Liz. Much appreciated - I hope it comes in useful. The main reason I started it up was so that I didn't have to write the same lengthy missive every time someone asked for tips :)
