A lot of people will jump into writing on the Internet. In reality, it’s an incredibly easy industry to get into. Unfortunately, not everyone will have the same level of success. Whether it’s ghostwriting, blogging or trying to publish your own novel, how much is necessary to make a living?
How often do you stare at a blank screen while waiting for inspiration to strike when you blog? Over the past five years, it’s happened to me quite often. Usually it’s worse when I haven’t had enough sleep the night before. At any rate, tools like Linkbait Title Generator may be the answer to your writer’s block.
It takes more than knowing keywords to create quality content. Catch phrases, buzz words and click-bait terms are all too prevalent. This is especially true on platforms like social media. Instead of sharing information, a lot of people simply regurgitate falsities or flat-out lie for the sake of getting views. So, what can you do to avoid looking fake when creating your own content?
One question I get asked a lot by people, colleagues and friends of friends is what kind of a degree I have in order to be a professional writer. I look at them and state how I actually went to college for graphic design and computer animation. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to finish because I lacked funding. In reality, a degree is not necessary to become a professional writer. Of course this also depends on where you want to take the career.
Freelance writing has great potential as a lucrative career. As long as you’re willing to put in the effort and market yourself well, it’s quite possible to keep working and make a lot of money. However, it’s also quite possible to burn out from all of the work and stress. Like any career, doing too much will eventually weigh on your soul to the point of where you snap. What can you do to avoid a break down?
