Love Your Work

30 Jun

Have you ever cold-emailed a publication — either online or in hard print — to pitch your writing to them? What kinds of writing contests do you enter? How many agents and publishers have you contacted about your writing? Have you self-published anything and, if so, how do you market your work?

Have you ever thought about making a living off of your writing, or do you write just for the pleasure of it?

Writers write because we need to write like we need to breathe air. We do it because we need to in order to live. It may be a slight exaggeration, but writers that I’ve encountered tend to share a similar feeling. And, while we don’t want to write just for money, many would like to make a living doing what they love.

Unless you’re, say, J.K. Rowling or Stephen King, writers don’t tend to make much money, but if they persist and continue to work to hone their writing craft, I don’t see why writers can’t use their skills to pay the bills.

And, hey, it won’t seem like such hard work if you do what you love, right?
