I've just started to write again on Wizzley and I would love to know what I can do to improve.  My latest article is

success in writing is up to you  Anything will be valued.

Hi there, It's so good to have you here. The one thing I noticed that I personally would change is one a bit unique to Wizzley. That being the AdSense ad placement a top the page. The text module to the left of the Ad flows much better and makes for an amazing looking page if it contains enough information to eliminate a chunk of white space before the following content below the ad and text module. 

I try to balance the my text content to match the size of the ad which is consistent. 

Taking advantage of this layout really leans in the favor of the writer giving the page the look and feeling of a blog or site in itself. 

Again, It's great to have you here.  Laughing

I really like the overall message with this page.  I also think the ideas of success and failure are subjective, and I think it's important that, if you use these concepts at all (I prefer to not think about them at all) that you define them or think about them in ways that are constructive and empowering for you.

I see a typo or awkward grammar at the top of the page, "your success is by selling book".

Besides this, my main comment on this is that you seem to be talking a lot in generalities, and I think I'd really like to see you share more specific experiences.  The page also seemed short--especially for a writer.  People interested in writing probably are also readers, and if they're like me, they'll probably want more.

You just piqued my curiosity but I don't feel satisfied!

In particular, I know people can be shy talking about specific figures, but if you're going to talk about money, I'd like to hear some specific figures...even if you don't want to share every detail.  I just think this makes the story easier to relate to and understand.  I also think it would be useful to talk about more details...did you self-publish a book, or did you go through a mainstream publisher with a contract?  Have you done any freelance writing?  What other websites (if any) have you published on?  Link to them if your writing is out there.

I feel like this would create a richer, and more specific page that would be more useful and interesting for me to read!
