Creative Content Writer…
Will Write For Room & Board
I’m gonna make this as simple as I think it can be.
To survive as a creative content writer…to actually make money and pay your way in life in this world that increasingly expects things to be free or cheap you need 3 main things. Consider this your bare bones professional toolkit:
- Talent…spend your “10,000 hours” and really turn yourself into the writer you’d actually be willing to pay yourself
- Passion…you gotta see through struggle…and rebound from rejection…and be willing to work (and wait)
- Marketing mindset…if you’re not born with it, get it as soon as you can because it might be most important of the three
OK…there’s your 3 piece toolkit for success as a creative content writer…or any other profession for that matter. Tomorrow’s too late to start because it never really gets here. If you’d like to expand on these three points or if you’d like me to, don’t hesitate to leave a comment.
