    First of all, great to be here - looking forward to reading back over the tons of valuable advice here, and hopefully offering some of my own!

    I'm a writer with fourteen years' fiction experience, originally from England but glad to be among the lochs and mountains! I'm making the move into copywriting with an eye on product descriptions, brochures/catalogues, infographics and maybe even VSL's if they're a good fit. I'm really interested in direct marketing and figuring out why some junk mail isn't as - well, junky, and over the next few months I want to try my hand at writing real copy for real businesses.

    Overall, I'm mainly here to learn, to help where I can, and offer advice and tips I've dug up in my copious spare time that you busy guys might not have had a chance to get to.

    Thanks for having me!

    P.S. The weather in England sucks. SO much better up here.

    LOL, I'm on the west coast of Scotland. Claiming the weather here is better than down England way is just crazy, like square pancakes.

    Each style of writing demands a different skill-set. If you want to know how to write copy that sells product, read 'Ogilvy on Advertising'.

    As for the weather - the East coast of Scotland has (according to the various weather maps) nice weather and sunshine right now.
