The difference between success and failure often boils down to these two words. You will find these to be the toughest to maintain throughout the journey towards a successful writing career.
Not just writing careers, all careers and goals. While you my get lucky and find a superstar level paying client right from the start, it won’t just happen overnight. If it does, please get your behind on here and let me know where it came from.
It is quite possible to make a living as a paid writer. If you are just starting out in this career choice and still have a full or part-time job, KEEP YOUR JOB UNTIL YOU HAVE THE REGULAR CLIENT BASE TO PAY YOUR BILLS TWICE OVER!!!! I have spoken with many paid writers over the years and that is a recurring theme of advice when the inquiry was made.
Most clients will come and go quite regularly. If you are fortunate enough to find top paying, high quality clients, do whatever is in your power to keep them satisfied. Therein lies another problem. When your starting off you will likely be on a piece-by-piece basis. I much prefer the long-term and repetitive requests from the fewest amount of prospects possible.
It will take a persistent and continuous effort on your part to find clients that you can rely on to there. You will succeed if you keep the efforts and drive going. I wish you the best of luck and I’ll be cheering for you.
Less than a week away from a completely new design and layout on the site here. I absolutely cannot wait to make these changes. I am still having issues with the usability and lack of layout control of the site. Fingers are crossed that I don’t rip what little hair I have remaining on my head, out between now and then.
Keep your head up and your goal sheet handy. Toodles.
