How to Write 1,000 Words per Day Consistently (Even If You’re a Beginner)

By Charles Bordet

How-to-Write-1,000-Words-per-Day-Consistently

One thousand words a day! That was the goal I had in mind when I decided to start writing a lot more.

This plan won’t easily become a reality, though. I’d never been consistent or productive in my writing, because my usual routine was to merely write sporadically, i.e, when I had time, motivation or a good feeling for it.

Let’s just say that didn’t happen often.

As a result, I wasn’t publishing a lot of content and my website was stagnating.

I decided to do something about it and to write much more than I had done thus far. Instead of writing from time to time, I would write every day and I would write at least one thousand words.

How much are you worth as a writer?

If you assume that your value as a writer – and how much you can charge for your work – directly correlates with your skills, you’re in for a rough ride.

Often, you read about writers struggling to earn $10 for a 1,000 words article, and at the same time you read about writers earning hundreds of dollars per article.

By Garik Himebaugh

It’s Monday morning and you’re rushing to get ready and make it to work on time. At the office you are greeted by stacks of paperwork, 200 emails, and you have 5 meetings today.

You sit down and make a list of everything you can think of to do, including what you can do after work. The list is pretty long. As the day progresses you work through most of what’s on your list, starting with what’s easiest. When you get home, you cross off a few more items.

Feeling exhausted and overwhelmed, you call it an early night. While you crossed off a lot of items on your list today, you don’t feel productive at all.

Does this scenario sound familiar? Hint: this is not what it means to be productive; this is simply called being busy.

How to Use Pinterest to Promote Your Freelance Writing Business

By Kirsty Stuart

Pinterest and freelance writing

Using images to promote your writing business? I know, it sounds odd.

Or does it?

If content is king in the blogging world, then images are surely the queen of social media, and if you think that as a writer you can’t market yourself and your freelance writing business with images, you might want to think again…

By dismissing Pinterest, you could be missing out on a number of eyeballs that would otherwise never have landed on your writer’s website or blog.
