I never had any doubts about my abilities. I knew I could write. I just had to figure out how to eat while doing this.
For me it’s been a struggle making a living as a writer and I don’t think I’m alone. But one thing I’ve learned over the years from writers who have cracked the code is reselling your articles. Selling reprints is one way to make money while you’re working on your new work.
Today, find a market for a piece you’ve already sold. Where do you start? If you have written articles I like Moira Allen’s article on selling reprints. Read it, do a little research and spend an hour submitting. Now get to work on your new writing.
The Writing Nag
I just found you from Lauri (http://laurireflections.blogspot.com/), and I’m so excited for some daily encouragement and writing tips! Yay! I’m going to go directly out to buy a notebook for the morning writing you posted about in your last. What a great idea.
It’s a great way to start the habit. I’d love to know how it goes for you.
It went great this morning . . . I think I’m in for it. 😉
