    Not Getting Where You Want As A Writer? Change Your Mind

    Being a creative writer has never been easy. From learning the craft, to practicing it, to selling your work.

    But that enthusiasm we felt sparked into passion as we got more involved in it and it continues to ignite us through the long and hard road of getting published.

    We are ready to make money from our writing. And it stands to reason that we should. We have already perfected our profession. Shouldnít the money follow?

    It doesnít because being a good writer does not guarantee a publisher will notice you. So as the rejection letters begin piling up you begin to question whether being a writer was actually a good idea or should you have hit yourself over the head.

    Being a writer is the most wonderful thing. And there isnít just one road to success.

    If you are submitting your work to publishers and getting nowhere all you have to do is one thing. Change your mind.

    Stop and think for a moment. You write. The product is yours. So why do you need someone to sell it for you? Why do you need to perfect those dreaded query letters just to get noticed? And why do you have to suffer for your art?

    Because the only way you can sell it is through publishers?

    Wrong. Very wrong.

    Put in the same amount of hard work you are putting in submitting to publishers and actually get somewhere in your life.

    The truth is writers have had a gut full of the whole publishing process.

    • We canít write what we want but have to cater to markets.
    • We have to make further changes when requested by publishers.
    • The amounts we get paid never justify the work put in.

        It is any wonder then that writes are becoming independent? They realize their product is theirs so they donít need anyone to sell it for them. And most of all? They donít need to suffer anymore.

        So they put in all their effort to create their own business and sell that product on the internet.

        And know what? They make it.

        The internet is an uncut diamond that we can shape into a fine jewel. The audience is wide and it just asks something from you.

        Be unique. Me-tooís donítí get anywhere on the net. This is where readers turn for something different. Are you different? Are you daring? Do you not beat to anyoneís drum but your own?

        A business on the net is ideal for you.

        Iím not talking about submitting your work to e-publishers. Iíll taking about building a website and selling your work straight from there.

        Become your own boss because you can. Be the free spirit you always wanted to be. Writers are known for their uniqueness. Donít mould your style to suit anyone. Unleash your creativity now because the opportunity is out there waiting for you.

        Take it and make a difference.

        Writers have made their own success stories.

        Do you want to make yours?
