Getting GOOD writing jobs is challenging. There are wonderful gigs out there, and they’re plentiful. However, from my chats with writers, and from working with my students, I know that many writers are getting trapped into junk gigs.
You’re writing for long hours, for peanuts.
It used to be easier. When I started my writing career over 30 years ago, everyone with whom I worked was a professional. They were creative directors, editors and marketing managers who were used to working with writers. Looking back, I now realize how lucky I was. It’s much easier to write when you have proper direction.
Nowadays writers usually deal with people who are just not used to working with writers. They want to pay as little as possible, and have no idea of how to help writers — or even of what they want. You’re on your own, with zero guidance.
So if you’re stuck getting terrible gigs, please understand that it’s not your fault. Moreover, there IS a lot you can do to ensure that you get better gigs.
This article, “3 Reasons You’re Not Getting the Writing Jobs You Want” will help.
In a nutshell: market, position and plan, and you’ll be amazed at how quickly you get great gigs. The great jobs are out there. The benefit of getting great jobs is that you’ll work with great people.
