How can I earn money as a writer?
How much money can I make as a writer?
These are questions that I get asked all the time.
And do you want to know the answer?
It all depends on one thing - YOU.
It depends on how well you write, what you write and how much you write.
So someone who writes useless blog posts once a month isn’t going to make as much money as someone who writes in depth, weekly blog posts that get read by hundreds of thousands of followers.
But now is the best time to become the successful writer you’ve always wanted to be - as long as you’re prepared to work at it.
This is the time of year when everyone is thinking about plans for the New Year.
And you can do it too by making a 12 month writing plan and thinking about these 3 things:
How much can you realistically write in 12 months? You’ll be surprised just how much is possible. for instance, writing for just one or two hours a day is enough to write a 50,000 word book a month.
What will you write? do you want to write ebooks? Novels? Or do you want to be a blogger? A scriptwriter? A copywriter?
How much will you need to write to earn enough money? This is where it becomes a bit of a guessing game, but it is possible to come up with a winning strategy of how much money you need to earn plus how you’re going to do it (it’s math, people).
In the end we’re all different so you need to come up with your own writing plan.
But the advice I can give you is that you shouldn’t wait till next year.
Make your plan now and start writing.
Don’t wait till the New Year.
