Freelance Writing For Results: Make $500 a Day

Freelance Writing For Results: Make $500 a Day

I wrote Freelance Writing: How to Make $500 a Day  over 18 months ago; I’ve just updated it.  Here’s why: I get email messages every week from writers who want to quit their day job and write full-time. However, life gets in the way.

Some of the messages truly touch me, because the writers are trying very hard. However, they end up writing for low-paying clients, and lose their confidence.

As I said in the article:

$500 isn’t a huge amount to make daily. Any competent writer can do this. However, in my work with my writing students, I find that many are not making anywhere near this amount. Let’s look at how you can make $500 and more, every day. With my students, I start by helping them to establish their mindset, then I tweak their workflow.

Both mindset, and workflow, are vital if you want to make $500 a day.

I added this to the original:

(Optional, but essential) writing you license: write and self publish, either fiction, or nonfiction.

In 2014, I wouldn’t consider works you license (ebooks and similar) truly optional. If you want a secure income, they’re essential.

Yes, it’s a challenge to find time to create ebooks. However, most writers leave money on the table, both when they write fiction, and when they write nonfiction. I discussed Draft2Digital adding Scribd to their distribution. You need to distribute as widely as possible. However, considering your formats is essential too.

Are you leaving money on the table? I know that I am. I could do much better with both distribution and formats. Believe me, I’m working on it. :-) More on formats here, in our new nonfiction program.

If you want and need to make $500 a day, and more, from your freelance writing, everything starts with your mindset. Happy writing. :-)
