Making Money as a Writer

I never had any doubts about my abilities. I knew I could write. I just had to figure out how to eat while doing this.
Cormac McCarthy

For me it's been a struggle making a living as a writer and I don't think I'm alone. But one thing I've learned over the years from writers who have cracked the code is reselling your articles. Selling reprints is one way to make money while you're working on your new work.

Today, find a market for a piece you've already sold. Where do you start? If you have written articles I like Moira Allen's article on selling reprints. Read it, do a little research and spend an hour submitting. Now get to work on your new writing.
