Editorial: Fab Freelance Writing is a paying market

Hi, thanks for subscribing to Fab Freelance Writing Ezine, and welcome to our first issue.

I hope you enjoy the ezine, and that it helps you to writing success, and of course, to monetary success as well. :-)

Fab Freelance Writing is a paying market. I welcome contributions both from established freelancers AND freelancers who've yet to make their first sale.

The payments are USD $10 until we develop a readership, but in the spirit of writing for money, I can't ask for contributions without paying for them. As we grow, payments to contributors will increase.

Your contribution can be a writing tip, a freelancing experience, or a how-to guide - anything you like. Keep it short, under 500 words. The copyright belongs to you. Fab Freelance Writing buys the electronic rights only.

See more details in the "writing for Fab Freelance Writing" notice at the end of the ezine.

** Struggling To Find Writing Gigs? **

Freelance writers just don't realize how much money there is to be made by writing for the Web: many writers use the Web as a research tool, they don't see the Web as a mass of millions of markets. They don't realize that Web sites are STARVED for good writers.

* Article: Just Write It, Whatever The Consequences

by Angela Booth

Want to transform your writing career? Here's a tip that took me 20 years to learn - I trust that it won't take you as long.

Here it is: whenever you get an impulse to write something, write it.

Your spontaneous impulses ALWAYS help you to take another step forward in your writing career. I've had impulses to write a book or an article, and my immediate response was: "No, it will take too long/ be too difficult/ I've got no time/ I don't know how..."

Unfortunately, I often listened to my negative mind-chatter, rather than following through, and doing it anyway, whatever the consequences might be.

I've missed many opportunities.

There are three reasons you should always Write It, Whatever The Consequences: you don't know what you don't know, you can't see around corners, and every rejection is a new opportunity.

Reason 1. You Don't Know What You Don't Know

You can't take a step forward in your writing career without facing the unknown. Don't let the thought "I don't know how" faze you. If you get the impulse to write something, you will always learn what you need to know to write it in the process of writing, there is no other way you CAN learn.

Whenever I'm given a new opportunity, if I feel that it would help my career, I grab it with both hands, because I've learned that I don't need to see where the path leads. I just need to see the path.

Trust the impulse. Go forward - write it anyway.

Reason 2. You Can't See Around Corners

When you get an impulse to write something which is scary, and you write it anyway, even if the result is woeful, the writing will lead you to an opportunity which you could have reached in no other way.

The birth of my copywriting career is a great example of this. When I began writing copy, it was out of necessity. I was managing a dog training business at the time, and writing novels. I was spending huge amounts of money advertising the dog training business. It was a chunk out of the budget that the business couldn't afford. I decided that there had to be another way to make people aware of us, so I started to send out news releases - even though I new nothing about writing news releases.

As I continued to write news releases, I got offers of copywriting work, and this opened a whole new business writing career to me. If I hadn't followed the original impulse to write news releases, copywriting would have remained a mystery. Not only would I have missed out on a lot of fun, I would have missed out on a lot of money, as well.

Reason 3. Every Rejection Is A New Opportunity

Rejections are EXCELLENT. Think I'm crazy, right? Not so. Every major sale that I've made as a writer, I gained via a rejection.

My first novel sale came about via a rejection - an editor at one publishing house declined my book proposal, but recommended that I send it to an editor at another publishing house who purchased not one book, but several from me.

I've made dozens of article sales via rejections. The process works like this. Rejection/ rejection/ rejection... followed by the offer of a contract to write an article. Those "rejections" let editors see my name, and get an idea of my interests, so that when they need an article that fits my style, they offer the gig to me.

As a freelance writer, your intuition is your most precious resource. So when you get an impulse to write something, ignore the negative mind chatter, and write it. You'll be amazed at the opportunities which will open to you.


** The More You Write, The More You Earn **

What if you could WRITE MORE - effortlessly?

It's possible to write more - to write at least a thousand words an hour, easily and effortlessly.

It's possible to enjoy writing, and to look forward to writing as the best part of your day.

It's possible to plan your writing career, or if you're a hobbyist, to get real joy out of your hobby.

What if the words flowed from your fingertips as soon as you sat down to write? What would your life be like then? What could you achieve?
