Make A Living Writing with one easy blogFriday, February 19, 2010 19:28
I’m reviewing the third freelance writing blog in the final post for this week and it’s one that can help any writer succeed in the industry – definitely a blog to check out for any writer.
Make A Living Writing is the blog of Carol Tice, a popular writer in the writing community. Respected by aspiring and successful writers alike, Carol has separated the blog from her main website recently and it now stands apart from Carol’s website, but with just as much information and useful resources.
There’s an particularly useful post on the blog about the top ten negotiation tips for freelance writers which features some invaluable advice for ensuring that you get the most appropriate rate for the gig. For example, one of the main points they make is to be vague about your costing for the project, so to allow the client to offer a rate first. It sounds simple and common sense when you’re saying it, but how many of you have actually done it?
As well as this, Carol offers her own mentoring service through Make A Living Writing. Costing $400, you get a substantial amount of telephone and e-mail support and if the reviews and reports from her past customers are anything to go by, the $400 is an absolutley nominal fee to pay.
Making a living as a successful freelance writer can be something that is difficult for anyone to achieve. However, Carol Tice’s Making A Living Writing blog should, even if only minimally, help you on your way to becoming a full time, successful freelance writer.
