Writing tips: Work on it!
All good things come to those who wait. Mmmm, with last week’s events, I’d like to change it to…. All good things come to those who wait and work hard as hell.Translation: If you wait for the right moment and work your a__ off, you’ll end up with some cool $$$ in the bank. Hehe, real sweet, right?
Well, I didn’t earn my dough from clicking ads or doing surveys because honestly, I don’t think such deals work. Neither did I pay any cash for any online job. Never. I just prepared for it real hard- I worked towards my goal, and I still do. I did and still do a lot of research on topics ranging from something as mundane as tongue scrapers to complicated matters like SEO and other gadgets.
Writing online is not an easy task. You have to read a lot and do a lot of drafting. Well, that is if you want to add value to your articles. I don’t blabber (this is an exception as this is my personal blog, hehe) or write articles that have little or no use to my readers. I do a lot of painstaking research on every topic assigned to me. I don’t give opinions- I share ideas that I gather from the research I made.
I still try to increase my typing speed by taking a typing course, enhance my writing skills by reading patiently and practicing the tips I learn from great online writers, and of course, I try not to take criticisms negatively. I think of them as motivators to keep me going.
And it works! Well, it can be tiring, too, what with six jobs that require me to sit and pound my keyboard furiously to meet deadlines. But it pays my bills and leaves me with some savings for my retirement, so I don’t complain. In fact, I love it.
Being able to finish a full-length, well-researched and well-written article gives me a certain high, and I guess, the approval of most of the clients I apply to. Last week, I managed to land two great jobs and I’m still waiting for the go signal for the third one. Cool!
How I manage to maintain multiple jobs will be my topic for my next article. GTG, I still have six articles to write….
