As you toil away, writing whatever it is that you write, are you getting paid? If you’re not getting paid to write, but you want to get paid to write, what are you doing to get that cash for words flowing in your direction? Perhaps you do get paid to write, but what you write is not what you really want to be writing. So again, I ask you, what are you doing to progress your goals?
Most published authors have a story about what they had to do to keep a roof over their heads and clothes on their backs while making progress towards the dream of living off income from published works. The point here is that with regularity and dedication, they were doing something every day that progressed the achievement of their publishing goals.
If you are hoping for freelance work but don’t know where to actually look for it, I’ve got some great news for you. Click over to the FWO’s Jobs and Searches area and you will find a list of useful tools and sites that will directly connect you with freelance opportunities galore. Of course, you still have to submit and apply yourself to acquiring the gigs, but Rowdy Rhodes, our site manager, has made it easy for you to find the openings. These sites and services will get you moving in the write direction.
Also, if you haven’t already, get signed up for Writer’s Site News (WSN). Rowdy delivers markets to your Inbox via WSN along with helpful news and more articles about writing. I recommend WSN as the perfect compliment to IN. It will keep you up to date with the happenings around here and let you know when a new edition of IN is available too.
Great content about writing, the writing life, and how-to write and get published is what INis all about.
