One of the hardest things about being a writer is knowing what to write and how to make money.
Years ago, I used to be the same.
I wanted to be a full-time writer and earn all my income from my writing, but I just didn’t know how to do it.
So this is what I did, and it should help you too:
When I first began as a writer the one thing I knew for sure was that I needed a website. I looked around and tried to do it the easy way by buying software to build a website but it soon became clear that I needed to know how to build websites myself.
So I took a HTML course in how to create web pages and that gave me the freedom I needed to make all my own sites.
Next I took a course called Quick Cash Writing and started making money writing for on and off-line publications. I also used my website to advertise myself as a freelance writer and, without doing any marketing, I soon started landing clients.
But soon I realized that writing for other people wasn’t really what I wanted to do, even though it was very lucrative.
So I did two more writing courses:
After that, there was no stopping me because now I knew how to earn money from my writing in several different ways.
Over the years I’ve bought several other writing courses as well, including:
And through it all, one thing I learned was that when I was following a writing course and the work I had to do was set out for me, I was much more productive and my income grew rapidly.
The reason that these writing courses help me (I still use them over and over again) is because they keep me focused. They give me a goal and a way to reach it and so I always succeed.
Eventually I created my own writing course, The 12 Month Writing Challenge, but it’s not for the meek, and you really have to have complete determination to see the course through to the end (and it really does take a whole year of work) and you need razor-sharp focus to stay on course and not be distracted.
But, by the end of one year you will have achieved:
And best of all, for the next 12 months, you won’t have to even think about how you’re going to earn money from your writing.
You just have to work through the writing challenge month by month and the income will follow automatically.
The only question is, are you up to the challenge?
Or, put another way, are you as serious as you think you are about being a writer?
Are you ready for one whole year of writing and earning money?
Just think, once you download The 12 Month Writing Challenge, you can start writing and earning straight away.
