What’s stopping you tripling your writing income this month?
Do you enjoy writing? I assume that you do, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this blog.
So, since you’re a freelance writer, you enjoy writing, and you want to make money at it, please understand that there is NOTHING preventing you from tripling your writing income this month.
You don’t need anyone’s permission or validation
A recent message from an ezine subscriber prompted me to write this post. This message was similar to dozens of others, it was a typical “what should I do” message.
This kind of message always starts off by giving me a potted bio of the writer, and then goes on to ask me what the writer should do, or in some cases, why what the writer has done isn’t working.
The subtext of the message is always a plea for permission to write, and validation.
I know what prompts these messages of course – it’s fear and a deep lack of confidence.
You’ll grow out of your fear, IF you write
I understand the fear. When I sent off my first book proposal to a book publisher (heck, 30 years ago) I thought I’d have a heart attack from sheer nerves.
Trust me on this: just keep writing and sending your material to the people who can buy it. You’ll grow beyond your fear, much faster than you can imagine. But you must send your writing out to people who can buy it.
In my case, I decided I’d send out a book proposal a month, for a year, and would see what happened. Well, around the third or fourth month after my decision, I received a multi-book contract.
That taught me a big secret about writing: it’s good to be scared, it means you’re doing something new, and if you keep doing it, the rewards will come.
So DO MORE of whatever you choose to write. Your reward is close, as long as you keep writing.
