03/10/2013 – 1,000 Orders Completed

Last Updated on by Michael Brockbank

Today I wrote my 1,000 completed order since I started January 1, of 2012.  In retrospect, that’s only 2.3 orders per day.  Of course, I really didn’t start concentrating on writing until June of last year.  My next goal is to hit 2000 before the year ends.  That’s going to be a lot of writing.  If I can stick to my personal daily goals, it should be no problem.

I have learned a lot in the past 434 days.  My writing has improved exponentially and I am now a steady level 4 on Textbroker.  Not too bad for a GED toting college dropout, eh?  I think I found my calling, though.  And it’s not just writing for Textbroker and WriterAccess.  I truly love to write.  I have been trying to get more content on my personal websites, which have began to grow in traffic again.  I am also planning on finishing the novel I am writing to be placed on Wattpad.  This is going to be a good year, I can feel it.

Now for the bad news.  I haven’t been as productive as I would’ve liked.  I have been busy with getting the house straightened up and getting stuff into storage.  And it doesn’t help when I am home at the same time my wife is.  I enjoy her company and it makes writing difficult as she is a distraction.  We have a plan to incorporate Adwords to sell affiliate marketing goods again and I have hopes that the proceeds will allow me to rent an office space somewhere in town where I will be void of the distractions of home.

My advise to anyone reading these journal entries – and by the looks of the hit counter there aren’t many – is to keep on it and don’t give up.  There is a lot of money to be made as a freelance writer and there is always plenty of work for you whether you are on Textbroker or not.  Learn everything you can and take criticism as a learning experience.  As long as you put your mind to the task, you can accomplish the same feats I have.  I work from home writing at my leisure – as long as the clients are happy – and have free time to do the things I haven’t been able to do in years.  It’s a nice change of pace.  I am not some salesman trying to talk you into anything.  I am a real person with children, bills, and a mortgage payment.  But this year, I have a good chance of becoming more than I am.  And so could you.

Here’s to another 1,000 orders.
