I’ve been reading a lot of blogs recently.
About making a living working from home. About being location independent. About writing.
And it just reinforces in my mind that I really need to get back to that. I need to get back to doing what I love full time. For my own sanity.
I’ve taken the first step. I finished my internship and I’m now a full writer at Inquisitr. But I have to do some work if I want to keep it because they do have guidelines and you have to stick to them. I need to improve on the performance of my articles. And part of that means I need to write more frequently.
Not that I don’t want to. I can write as much as I want so the earning potential is definitely there. But ya, there’s definitely some effort involved.
I also want to get my ass in gear and get more fiction published. I published something new for the first time in ages. New pen name, new genre. It’s meant to be a serial. And one of the keys of having a successful serial story is that you need to publish frequently. You can’t just publish one part a month – unless they are longer parts. But I’m aiming at 10,000 words or so per part so I really would like to publish one a week.
I was planning on publishing part 2 of this serial last Friday. I’m only 1000 words into it, so that didn’t happen. 🙁 But I know if I’m working from home full time again I can do that. And I think this series has the potential to do really well. It has great characters and a great cover (I think) and a great story.
My goal is to get back to this writing full time business by September. And if I can just pull myself together and start writing more I know I can do it.
I have to – for my sanity!
