Little Ray tried again and again on that day.
Just when it seemed there was no way
for him to stay very long in the air,
he disappeared from sight up there!

How to build professional book writing websites through writer perseverance with the learning of HTML and CSS standard website design elements.

Golden Hour? Writers can work at home, without a commute. Alarms rarely jolt their workdays to start. Time management and organizational skills drive disciplined habits, build safety nets and establish careers.

Current Affair? Writers should consider writing a blog to drive traffic, invite comments or get content shared on social media. These informational or diary-style discussions can operate independent of websites.

Shore Leave? One or two social media accounts should be maintained. Invaluable contacts can be made in virtual networks. They offer perfect hunting grounds for mentors, clients, work assignments and trending options.

Trust Factor? Others own and operate social media. They may determine profiles, posts, videos or images are offensive, without reason. They can boot anyone off. They can render pages and profiles totally invisible.

Crash and Burn? Websites can be privately owned and controlled. Trends can be monitored. Adjustments can be made to accommodate changing needs in online and real-world communities. Technology provokes most upgrades.

Road Signs? Augmented reality, virtual reality, voice commands and mobile or wearable devices drive today's audience to unique platforms of value. Trying to hawk books does not work. Hard-sell tactics kill careers.

Just Dessert? Longevity of effort lends credibility. Most writers work alone. People, things and actions quietly evolve and mature to earn respect. Development of a content marketing strategy is not instant or immediate.

Directors: Cut! Every type of publishing house expects writers to participate in promotional and marketing efforts. To earn attention, writers must be tech-savvy. Cheap, paperless productions may no longer be effective.

Powerplay? Tech is a critical rung in a writer's climb to publishing success. Writers have literacy to research, study and develop necessary tech understandings. They are the best source of content for their own promotions.

Color Guard? Everyone is vying for attention. Imaginative creators apply trending technology to marketing. Writers must be nimble and quick to build names for themselves with colorful delivery of relevant, quality content.

Takeaway? Writing must extend to trending technology. Publishing, writing marketing and promotion require automation and optimization techniques. It is costly to hire talents to design and regularly update computerized systems.

Everyone Seems to Ask: Why Build Professional Book Writing Websites?

Owning Up? A writer's website is an individual, online store, offering command and authority. Purchasers looking to buy, check out the website first. A competitive domain is less at the mercy of outside control.

Creative Class? Writer perseverance brings books to completion. Building professional book writing websites, blogs and social media accounts are further tests. Determined writers acquire digital-age tech skills to thrive.

High Tide? Attention is on the latest developments in technology. Writers must harness technology to compete for notice. Few people are interested in books. HTML and CSS are the next rungs in publishing professionalism.

Sharp Note? Do-It-Yourself Book Promotion centers around a website. Tech literacy is an expansion of a writer's already advanced skills with human language. Writers are natural builders of professional book writing websites.

Uniform Look? HTML sets online standards. It is widely used in web-writing applications encountered in book marketing and promotional activities. It forms online book selling sites, catalogs and detail pages.

Net Worth? Writer perseverance with HTML extends beyond the architecture of professional websites. This technology is compatible with the self-publishing POD industry and with traditional royalty-paying houses.

Sand Castles? Rankings of a writer's sites can soar above the competition. Content carries keywords to the first page of the Google Web Search Engine owned by Google Inc. These successes often come without paid advertising.

Measures? Search engines weigh search priorities and change algorithms daily. They catch trends and tricks far before humans. As toxic links become more prevalent than healthy ones, analytic screening of backlinks may end.

Detox? Finding, disavowing and removing unwelcome parasite links is costly and time-consuming for people and bots. It takes time away from development and curation. Any end to this nightmare should be win-win.

Beach Day? Readers continue to evolve. Reading is pivoting away from text. Audio-book listening, e-books, graphic novels, interactive and online resources seem to be on the increase. HTML guides browsers to content.

Master of Suspense? Staleness hurts writing career rankings. Without regular content revisions, websites cease to receive visits. Referral traffic stops from major search engines. These sites fail to reach surfers' screens.

Walk to Remember? Launches into the real world can start with a simple website, then incorporate blogs, testimonials and reader reviews into Book Promotion. Local and virtual networking can add connections and content.
