I just sent the first lecture and assignment for my Article-Writing Course to the students who have signed up for this session. It’s not too late for you. There’s still time to join in. Sign up at http://www.matilijapress.com/course_magarticles.htm
Make the $125 investment in your career and this time next year you could be writing for a variety of magazines and earning in the thousands of dollars. Of course, it won’t happen if you don’t put in the time and effort. Success as a freelance article writer won’t come to you just because you sign up and read the lectures. As with anything that’s important, you must show up and participate.
Have you ever won or succeeded without trying? I don’t think so. Those of you who are enjoying any measure of success with your freelance writing or your book sales, have paid your dues. And you continue to pay for as long as you want to sell articles or books. Anyone who is no longer experiencing a measure of success is not making sacrifices, is not participating and has stopped showing up. Am I right about your situation?
If you’ve been slacking, maybe this is a good time to jumpstart your career by making a new commitment to it. If you want to start earning money through article-writing:
• Sign up for my article-writing course.
• Join SPAWN and read the SPAWN Market Update faithfully each month.
• Purchase the 2010 edition of the Writer’s Market (available now).
• Schedule time every day to study the markets and send queries.
If you want to sell more books:
• Set up a few speaking engagements to promote your book.
• Get some book reviews in appropriate publications.
• Reserve a booth at a few book fairs.
• Take my Book Promotion Workshop
I’d like to hear about the steps you decided to take on behalf of your writing project or career.
Me? I just this minute ordered the 2010 Writer’s Market. I’ll be selling books and speaking tomorrow (Saturday, July 25, 2009) at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ventura, CA. I agreed to speak at a meeting of the California Writers Club in Canoga Park August 15. I have had several articles accepted by writing/publishing-related magazines this month. And I am writing a new book for authors. (More about that later.)
