Recently we’ve been dealt a rather large dose of life. From time to time we all have to deal with things that are out of the ordinary. Sometimes the life doses are small and other times they’re large. This time life dealt us a biggie.
The wonderful thing about being a freelance writer and dealing with what life throws our way is that if we planned it right, we still have a residual source of income that comes in whether or not we have time to write (do you hear a motherly lesson on the horizon?).
I know I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating.
- Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket
- Work on building a base of articles on several freelance writing sites that pay via residual income
- Spend a little time creating your own blog/website.
From the comments I receive on this blog I understand that Textbroker, Demand Studios and other pay for writing sites a very popular. I’m not advocating that anyone stop writing for those sites. Quite the contrary, keep writing for those sites, but don’t lose sight of the future. In addition to writing for those sites continue to build a foundation of articles on residual sites. This way, when the unexpected happens and you are unable to spend the time that you would normally spend writing, you won’t have to worry about whether or not you’re making money.
The Other Good Thing about Life’s Doses and Freelance Writing
Being dealt a large dose of life unexpectedly is a great way to find writing material. If written properly, your writing can serve as an outlet for you as a writer and serve as a learning experience for the reader. What better way to help yourself and others
As a result of this rather large dose of life that has been placed in my lap, my posts here may be a bit more sporadic than usual for a little while.
