How to Make Writing into a Full Time Job

By Edited Aug 8, 2015 2 1

Writing can be a job like any other. Some people feel that writing comes naturally, and this is a good thing, but sometimes people can get bogged down when it comes to writing. If you want to make writing into a full time job, but are finding it hard to always know what to write and how to stay disciplined, here are some thing that you should keep in mind to help you on your way.

In order to make writing into a full time job, you have to set up a schedule and you have to stick to it. If you do not, you will find that your mind will wander and you will lose focus on the task at hand and will not even know what to write about when it comes down to it. A job is a job and writing is no different. If you have a desire to share information, then writing is right up your alley, but you have to be educated on how to do it, to be successful.

To make writing into a full time job, you have to set a pace. Writing requires a certain amount of discipline like no other job. It requires a clear mind and a clear heart if you are going to do it properly and attract a lot of readers. People do not like to read cluttered thoughts and information that does not captivate them or make any sense. If you are going to write, you need to be consistent and consistency comes with a set schedule and a balanced lifestyle. If you find that your lifestyle is hectic and you do not have a lot of time to sit down and write, writing is probably not something that is going to work for you. If you have a lot of distractions around you, in your home or just generally, then writing definitely will not work. You can make a substantial living off of writing, but the only way that is going to happen, is by you building your knowledge bank over time and by not letting it go stale. These are the basics for knowing how to make writing into a full time job. There are many resources on the Internet that can help you make money writing, but that should not be your sole objective. Your top priority should be a desire to write and to share information on what you believe is important in today's society.

Full-time writers should also consider correct Web 2.0 Freelance Blogging techniques. It takes time and effort, but the end result is enough AdSense revenue to subsist from while sitting in front of a laptop: * Blog often. * Write separate articles about your topic to submit to sites that accept articles (like GoArticles.com, etc.; the articles provide important back-links to your blog). * Quote and link to subject matter experts from within your blog. *Also post comments at blogs that allow comments (like this one), specifically for the additional back-links. * Lean toward maximizing AdSense placement, without overkill; AdSense placement at top of a blog post between title and text maximizes exposure. * And don't give up because it's not a scam and it actually works over time.
