If my email inbox is any guide, more and more freelance writers are turning to fiction writing as a way of increasing their writing income. They want advice and strategies — ways to make fiction profitable.
How to help? Initially I thought I’d create another blog. Neither this blog, nor the Just Write a Book Blog, seemed the right venue. Then I considered whether I even wanted to make fiction strategies public on the open Web.
I decided that I did… 🙂
We’re Living in a Golden Age for Writers
Writers have never had as many opportunities as they do now. Fiction’s a big opportunity. However, fiction’s a challenge for writers, both long-established writers, as well as new writers. Yes, there are many ways you can self-publish. You can even go the traditional route: literary agent, and publishing contract.
There are many ways you can market your books too. Additionally — what will you write? You can choose novels short stories, series, and serials.
You’ve got to make choices, and all the choices lead to confusion. This can mean that you’re paralyzed, as you wait for the right choice for you. It’s enervating. You end up writing nothing.
You CAN make money writing fiction… if you want to
I work with many writers who want to write fiction, but tell me that they have “no imagination.” That’s not so. Everyone has imagination, and ALL writers have more imagination than people who aren’t writers.
It’s simple to harness your imagination and make it work for you. In essence, fiction is just making stuff up. Telling stories. You can do it.
Find it challenging? That’s your inner editor getting in the way. Day dream. Imagine yourself as someone who:
- Won the lottery;
- Got a new job — in the 18th century, in your town;
- Woke up in the middle of the night, alone in the house. And heard footsteps coming up the stairs…
You have an imagination. Use it.
(Or if you’re still convinced that you have NO imagination, pretend that you do. :-))
