You Won't Make Money From Writing If You Don't Get On With It

Living The Laptop Lifestyle: How To Start & Grow A Profitable Online Business So You Can Quit Your Job
One of the questions I get asked the most is how do I earn money from writing?

And I keep giving the same answer.

I write.

You see that's the big secret about a writing income. You have to actually do the writing. Not just once or twice. But all the time. Every day.

But there are some people who don't have a clue where to start. And so they don't.

There are others who have a multitude of excuses as to why they can't earn money from writing - no time (always the favourite), have kids, have a job, far too busy already, don't have any spare time to write, and on and on it goes.

I say, go tell your excuses to Stephen Hawking style=and see how much sympathy HE has for you. He writes books all the time despite his inability to move. So what's your excuse for not writing?

How and Where to Start

Asking the right questions can help you get started because it helps to know what you want so that you can figure out how to get it.

So if you're not writing enough, or your not writing at all, ask yourself these 3 questions:

How much  do you want to earn from your writing? This needs to be a liveable amount of money for you.

How do you want to earn it? Blogging? Writing books? Freelance writing?

How much can you write every week? This is where you need to be honest with yourself and make a decision of which unnecessary activities you're going to remove from your life so that you have more time to write or where you can find pockets of time to write. J K Rowling wrote her first Harry Potter novel for 2 hours every afternoon while her baby daughter napped. As a single mother, it was the only free time she had so she made the most of it.

And if you need more help there are plenty of ebooks and courses for writers to help you get started earning money from your writing straight away.

But to get going, you don't need to know how you're going to earn money from your writing, you just need to know what you want to do.

Then get on with it.

Don't make any more excuses.

If you're not earning or not writing enough, then change what you're doing.

Get out of your comfort zone.

Get uncomfortable, and soon it will be your new comfort zone.

And it will be profitable.
