“every freelance writer dreams of the opportunity to sit down at the table of a literary genius”
A clear vision of what you hope to achieve will certainly help to keep your focus in order. While distractions may come and go, the end goal must remain in the forefront of your daily endeavors. It may not be necessary to re-invent the proverbial wheel, your creativity will not suffer if you mimic the literary practices of those who have successfully authored before you.
compile your wish list and write it down
- research writer’s you wish to work with
e.g. (Shonda Rhimes, Lee Daniels, Luvvie Ajayi, Chicken Soup For the Soul, O’ Magazine)
- read and repeat submission qualifications
- create for yourself a chart of deadlines
Most importantly kick fear out of the window, step out on faith and go get the writer’s lifestyle you so desire.
