Before now, you struggled to make enough money to pay your bills as a new writer, but with time, persistence, and hard work, you managed to drag yourself out of that phase.
Now you want to do a lot more than just pay bills.
You need to increase your current revenue so you can put money aside as savings on a regular basis. You’d also like to give yourself and your family a few treats from time to time, without having panic attacks.
Not to mention, you also want to be able to afford that vacation you’ve been dreaming of so you can travel to exotic locations around the world.
Bottom line, you want to bring in more income as a professional writer and make a living from your writing, but you’re not sure if it’s possible or how it can be done.

If you have the ability to imagine something useful or interesting or generate ideas, then you are creative. Putting all these ideas down on paper is creative writing.
Creative writing is any form of writing that focuses less on journalistic, academic, technical, or professional forms of literature, but more on expressing ideas, thoughts, and emotions in an imaginative way. It is the bedrock of the world of entertainment and the media.

If you’re like many people, you need to learn how to write faster, which really means that you need to write smarter. When you’re a blogger, time is money. You can’t post once or twice a week if you spend three days fighting with the same post.Continue reading
Let’s start by stating the obvious: Writing publicly to an audience is a prerequisite of becoming an acknowledged writer.
Otherwise, nobody will know what the hell you do! You’re not exactly gonna get too far with your writing career if you don’t, right?
And I’m no mind-reading guru, but my guess is you want to earn a few bucks, too?
This means that you will have to write publicly in order to get noticed. This might require paid work for websites, publications, and magazines; quite a lot.

In addition to that, some entrepreneurial writers, like myself, write privately, too.Continue reading
