2018 is just around the corner — by the time you read this, it may already have arrived.
Whether you’re a freelancer, a commercial writer, a ghostwriter, or a self-publishing author, I have good news, and bad news, about the environment for professional writers in 2018.
Writing success in 2018: while there are definite challenges, there are also wonderful opportunities.
Here’s the good news…
The good news: 2018 offers unlimited opportunities for you
The bright side of 2018 — truly unlimited opportunities.
You’ve got LinkedIn to help you to get gigs, and Facebook’s two billion (yes billion) users to whom you can sell services and books.
Moreover, there’s a HUGE demand for competent writers — the biggest complaint I get from clients, and from editors, is the misery of finding competent writers who’ll do what they say they’ll do.
That demand for writers isn’t likely to fade in 2018.
When you get clients who love your work, you’ll get lots of repeat business. And they’ll help you to spread the word — they want you to stay in business, because they need you.
For self-publishers, the outlook’s bright. People are buying books, and more readers are discovering the joys of indie author’s voices. Some indie authors have established seven figure businesses — with effort, you’ll thrive in 2018.
