Writing is the only profession where no one considers you ridiculous if you earn no money.
As I'm flexing my writing muscles in other areas and trying to find my niche, I'm writing for garden and hearth. Being on this website has connected me with a lot of different writers that are doing the same thing, trying to make a living with their words. I'm new to this but I have gotten some great advice on marketing from these talented writers. Getting paid to write even a small amount validates me as a writer. As a struggling poet my poetry board with their daily critiques is enough to keep me writing poetry...for now. But eventually the money is necessary.
Today, write a page about what you need as a writer to keep going...is it words of encouragement or money? Now get back to work!
