So You Want To Be a Conservative Writer......?
« on: February 02, 2018, 08:34:08 AM »
I'm not a writer as some or most of you are well aware. Matter of fact after you read my portion you will agree with me....LOL. Some of you guys are very talented conservative writers that have a lot to share with the world. I thought the article below will interest you.

I thought this article has some interesting points and views. Especially the different forms, ideas, or views of conservative writing which lead me to .....who or what in the world is a "conservative".

Are the #nevertrumpers conservatives like the ones at The Right Scoop....? How about the Trump supports from the beginning like the ones at Breitbart, are they the conservative ones. Has the "conservative" name been hijacked because the "republican" name is now so associated with the democrats......?

I always wondered why the folks running for office under the republican banner always start and finish their campaign as being "conservative". Then when in office their votes tell otherwise.

With all these political views being tagged along the conservative line I myself explain to people when asked what is "conservatism". It's a way of life for me. I live it, breathe it, and I run my life by it.

IMO....this past presidential election really narrowed down what a "conservative" is. Although I do agree with the writer you should target your audience when writing but some of these site he states are not "conservative". They are big government republicans at best.

I know when I post this I'm going to find a crap load of writing mistakes......but what the hell.... :thumbsup:

So You Want To Be a Conservative Writer......?

After three years of writing at the Andrew Breitbart-era Breitbart, then over five more at Townhall, plus some books and freelancing from the 1980s to the 2000s, aspiring writers will ask me what they need to do to be a conservative writer, and I get sad. I get sad because I know the answer is the one answer they don’t really want to hear.

You have to write. As my friend Michael Walsh says, it’s “Behind in seat.” Except he doesn’t say “behind.”

Get the “writing” part down first. Then you add the “conservative” component to what is already hard work. No, it’s not hard work like doing construction or carrying a rifle and rucksack are, but if it was easy everyone would do it. And only a few people are so inclined to take on the challenge. Most people have more sense.


People sleep peacefully at night because there are a few tough men prepared to do violence on their behalf.

Thanks for posting. I left a reply. As follows.   :laugh:

So, you want to be a Conservative Writer?
First and Foremost, you have to be an actual Conservative, not one who only recently discovered Conservatism, no, you need to have lived it for decades.
Sure, there are many converts from the left, and they have a unique poerspective, but they also have a small audience of targeting leftists, the rest of us see it as preaching to the choir. (Boring)
I, myself have been a Conservative as far back as I can remember, your typical all American, Boy next door, the one that was always doing the Right thing, whether anyone was watching or not, (you don't do it) because you're in search of accolades, no, you do it because this is the way you hope everyone else thinks.
Anyway, I digress.

If you have a talent for conveying your message in a susinct sort of manner, then feel free to submit your work to: or:
In care of Solar or Taxed. We will review your submission, and if good enough, post it at both sites, or we may suggest corrections.
But before you submit it, please take the time to run it through a grammar/spellcheck prog. So as to spare us the headache of spelling errors, and distracting from your real point.

All submissions will be taken seriously, all will receive a response, and no, we won't chastise you for anything you write, though we may make suggestions as to how you can improve your skill.
Please, feel free to visit either site so as to get an understanding of what and who we are.
What we are not, is racist, there is no place in Conservatism for racism, pure and simple, that is a Marxist creation started and perpetuated by the left, as in Hate for the American Culture.

OK, as usual, I got longwinded, so I'll stop here and hope you all consider pounding out your thoughts. If anything you will have accomplished something few ever do, and only dream about, being published and having others glean knowledge from your words.
Thanks, Solar.
