I wrote this article many years ago for Associated Content (in its heyday). In those days, it was number one on Google and it drew quite a bit of traffic.

The trouble with Hubs (or blogs) about writing is that it's a heavily saturated topic so it's tough to get traffic no matter how good the article.
