 25 Ways to Write for Money


As writers, we limit ourselves with our writing income by sticking to just one form of writing. From the word go, I only ever wrote fiction. And I found it incredibly difficult to make more than pocket money because of it.

I’m a bit slow off the mark sometimes, so it took a few years for me to realise the error of my decision. An online writing friend told me she had constant work writing non-fiction. And she’d found it easier to break into that arena.

So I began to do the same. But for a long time I limited myself to just one area – writing articles. After a while I started writing non-fiction books, and every now and then added to my repertoire. These days I’m constantly juggling projects, whether that’s articles, copywriting, ghostwriting, short stories, web content, etc.

Sometimes I’m lucky to find time to take a break during the week, because I have so much on my plate.

What has always surprised me the most is the fact no one has ever written much information about this widely unknown blueprint to writing success.

Until now.

David Goldsmith has put together an incredibly informative ebook called 25 Ways to Write for Money. What this book won’t do is teach you how to write.

What it will do, is show you 25 different ways to use those skills to earn income from your writing.

In most cases, there is some additional education required, but not a huge amount. For instance, number one in the book is copywriting. As I’ve told you before, copywriting is a very lucrative form of writing.

Just last week I undertook a very small project which took less than thirty minutes from start to finish. The completed project landed a fee that – with less lucrative forms of writing – would have taken at least two hours to earn.

Each section of the book provides a brief outline on the form of writing (copywriting for instance), then tips of how to earn from it.

Let’s look at the section on Resume Writing. It provides information about how long it may take to write a resume, and also mentions that you may need to do this over a week or so depending on additional questions the client may need to answer. It gives an indication of the earning capabilities for resume writing, and some ideas of ways to find work in this area.

It also talks about the format types used in resume writing, and gives some suggestions for further education. Goldsmith provides some tips and talks about common mistakes made with resume writing.

I found the book to be very informative, opening my eyes to a variety of ways to make money from my writing skills - many of them previously unknown to me.

If you want to learn about 25 different ways you can use your writing skills to earn money, some not so well known, then this book will suit you perfectly.
