There are generally two viewpoints when it comes to writing. You have the people who hate it and dread the thought of having to put their thoughts to paper, and you have the people who feel liberated when they can achieve the same task. Of course, there are many different avenues of writing. Creative writing, poetry, research papers, expository essays, persuasive writing, songwriting, speech writing…the list goes on and on, and that’s what’s amazing about this activity. Writing is an expression in which humans can be free to be themselves and enlighten others.
Unfortunately, writing is known to be a rather fickle thing. It seems to be completely at the mercy of the uncontrollable being called inspiration. Writer’s block isn’t always easy to overcome. There are tricks to free up the mind and to get the words flowing, but even then, people who have a passion for writing often struggle to find ways to make ends meet with their passion and gifting.
Thankfully technology has come to the rescue. Even though technology ruined writing in many senses, it’s revolutionizing the way people can make money today, so without further ado, here are 3 ways you can monetize your writing ability today:
There are definitely a million and one blogs out there, but if you follow the step-by-step guide, you can monetize your blog in 47 minutes. If you have something to say, even if it’s not a full-time job as of yet, you can make it so that you’re acquiring an income stream off of your writing. Hopefully, you’ll get so successful that you’ll be able to make a living off of your writing alone, because all writers dream of being able to live off of what they love to do. In any case, in today’s world, you don’t have to publish a book to make money. You can do several different things.
If you’re good at writing and you have big plans for your future, but you know that it’s best that you write on a consistent basis to keep things flowing, you should consider writing articles. There are hundreds, if not thousands of streams out there for you to throw a line into. You could write about anything and publishing sites will pay you for your work, so do some research and make it happen.
This is a heavy hitter, but if you’re good at writing, you’re not daunted by doing research, and you perform well under pressure, you should look into being a professional speech writer. Who knows where it could take you. One day you might find you’re writing speeches for the president, making a million dollars a pop, and being followed around by secret service. That’d be pretty cool…
