Last week, I asked you for what questions you need answered to be able to move forward with your writing career. The big questions I received are below — there were a couple that were fairly simple, so I’ve brought them together into one.
- How can I better manage my time, both so I can pick up more clients and I can keep working on my own projects?
- How do I keep writing about the same topic regularly? How do I find new ideas?
- How do I find jobs? How can I go through job sites efficiently? How can I get pitches out of the slushpile and in front of editors?
- How can I make money off of my blog and my own writing without a client?
These are some big questions but they’re all questions that I have piles of information on. In particular, I’ve got some information that I think will be particularly helpful when you’re ready to move beyond what I refer to as introductory level freelance writing.
I’m going to start working on some help for each of these ideas, but I want to make sure that there isn’t one of them that you’d greatly prefer I start with. If there is, please let me know below.
I’m also starting to think about format. I’m generally inclined to write everything up, put it in a PDF and share it with you that way. I prefer to be able to read material, but I know that’s just me. How do you prefer to learn? Once again, let me know below.
I’m very excited about this and I can’t wait to get started on it!
