Boost Your Writing Income

email to ask if I think they should write fiction or non-fiction. My answer will always be both.
When I was starting
out, I was only interested in fiction. What I later discovered is that I’m good at writing both, and enjoy both, so
why not utilize each form of writing? From my own experience if you are able to work in more than one area, you’ll sell
more of your work, more often.
This year I decided
to do more report writing and copywriting etc., and have boosted my income considerably by doing so.
The bottom line
is, we’re writers, and like other professionals, we can easily multi-skill. If you want more income from your writing,
learn as much as you can about different areas of the craft.
I know loads
of writers who are multi-skilling, but they don’t have their services listed on their websites. When I’ve asked
them why, they’ve told me they simply didn’t think of listing their services. Why not? How can editors, publishers
and/or employers find your services if they don’t know they exist?
not sure what services you can provide, brainstorm. Write a list of all the writing-related things you can do. For instance:
Letter head design
There is so much
scope for your writing services, and so much money to be made.

can easily tailor your services to suit your expertise and/or qualifications, go to http://www.cheryl-wright.com and click
If you want to
sell a particular service but don’t have the knowledge or expertise, educate yourself and monetise your writing business.
What are you
waiting for? Get writing!
