The Writer's Dilemma: Should You Write For Free?

Written by Angela Booth

Continued from page 1

However, beyond promotion, I've discovered other benefits of writing for free.

* You write more. This is pressure-free writing. You get to write what you like, when you like.

* You get more ideas. All this keyboard-tapping is making me more creative. I've got pages and pages of notes for articles, books, and courses.

* You enjoy writing more. It's been years since I enjoyed writing this much. Why? Because it's more play than writing.

* You're pioneering new ways for writers to make a living from writing.

=> You,repparttar writer, as pioneer

The Internet turns writers into pioneers. You get to discover new ways to make a living from your craft. Is this easy? No. Is it fascinating? You bet.

I first became aware ofrepparttar 129395 Internet in 1993-1994. In those days, getting an Internet connection was an adventure. I finally got a free connection, set it up with lots of help (there's nothing as unforgiving as a Unix command line), and discovered online bulletin boards.

Within months, I had a CompuServe account andrepparttar 129396 real adventure began. I couldn't believerepparttar 129397 possibilities. I still can't.

There's a revolution going on. Thanks torepparttar 129398 Internet, writers are discovering new ways to make money. They're publishing their books as ebooks, setting up subscription Web sites, and subscription ezines.

They get started in this adventure by writing "for free". As their following builds, they sell their work torepparttar 129399 people who know them and trust what they have to say.

* These writers built this trust by writing for free.*

Can you make money from ebooks? You work it out. If you write an ebook on a hot topic, it takes you a month or so to write. You sell it online for $20. You sell 200 (let's be conservative). Not bad pay for a month's work.

If you're writing professionally, it takes a change in perspective to write and not get paid for it. At least, not in a way you're used to being paid.

But writing for free can help you to discover how creative you really are.
