I achieved the October Double O goal, but I’m entering November in a more reflective mood. While it was great earning over $3,100 in October, it came at a pretty high price. I wrote far too many articles for Demand Studios (78 in total). This month I’m putting Demand Studios on the back burner.
The DMS money (keep forgetting they changed the name from DS to DMS) allowed me to put some money away, get ahead on a couple of bills, pay for a few dinners out and buy some extra things for my daughter, but it took its toll on my creativity. I liked having the extra money, but I cannot keep up that crazy writing pace. Writing 77 articles for yourself on topics you enjoy is effortless, writing 77 different iterations on the same topic isn’t.
Switching Up for a Bit
I might write the occasional DMS article in November, but my focus is going to be on writing on topics I enjoy. I originally created an aggressive November writing goal, but I tuned it down quite a bit. That’s the beauty of residual income. If you work hard up front by putting in a nice foundation, over time you can fine tune your daily, weekly and monthly writing routine to accommodate your writing muse.
Quite some time ago I did a post on the money or the muse. Well, last month the money won out, but I don’ think it will win this month. I think it’s time to open the cage and allow the muse to come out to play.
How was your October and what’s on tap for November?
