For a few months I have been following a blog wrote by Carol Tice called Make A Living Writing. What I have learned from her is genuinely priceless.
She has tips and tricks on what to charge and how to get new clients. She discusses ways to sell yourself. She is honestly an amazing writer and she has given me the confidence I needed to follow my dreams.
My favorite post from her lately is ‘Can You Really Earn A Living As A Freelance Writer?’ , in this post she discusses how some people think that freelance writing is a joke and not a read job or career. She has been a freelance writer, earning a living doing so for more than 10 years. She has over 500 posts that tell you how to earn through magazines, articles and how to gain clients.
This amazing woman leaves absolutely nothing out. She discusses the good, the bad and the ugly. You can follow her blog for free but she also offers a private place for the serious writers to gather and learn, share ideas and hang out. This is called the ‘Freelance Writer’s Den’.
The ‘FWD’ cost $25 a month, with no obligation and you can leave at any time. NO STRINGS ATTACHED!
The ‘FWD’ offers; E-courses so you can learn at your own pace, access to previous live events; quarterly 4-week intensive boot camps such as ‘How To Make Good Money Writing Online’ , A chance to get advice from freelance writer’s that are successful such as herself and ‘Renegade Writer’ Linda Formichelli, live events with Ed Gandia and Peter Bowerman, a junk free job board where you will not find cheesy low paying jobs and MUCH MORE!
The ‘FWD’ is a place for serious writers only. If you are writing as a hobby then this may not be the place for you but if you want a career in freelance writing the you are only hurting yourself by not joining.
At the very least visit her blog, read her posts, take what she says and implement it. I promise you will see your business grow, you will gain confidence that you need.
She also replies to all comments and questions. I can not say enough wonderful things about Carol and what she is doing for the writer’s community as a whole.
