EDITORIAL:

 

This issue is sooooo late. Better late than never, and I have a very good excuse - I had no computer!!

I knew it was bad, but I didn't realise just how bad until the last few days before it was replaced. It got to a point where I could do nothing at all.


But now I have a shiny new, working(!) computer.  I can't believe the difference.  This computer actually works.

I've only been back online, on computer, and at my desk, for a few days, so I'm sure you understand that creating a newsletter was impossible.

Recently I was lucky enough to attend a Nicholas Sparks evening.  It was run by a large bookshop in Melbourne, and I found out about it only a few days ahead of time.

Nick talked about getting into writing - his 'call story' and getting an advance of $1m for his first contracted book(!) - as well as inspiration for his books.

It was an interesting evening, and I got to talk to him one-on-one at the end.  Here's a pic of the two of us, but as usual, my photo is a shocker. (Me and cameras don't mix well. LOL)

Okay, onto this issue.

Paul Callaghan has written an interesting article about managing your time in order to get more done, and therefore ea.rn more as a result.

That's it from me, time to sit back and enjoy this issue.

Til next time…

 

p.s. The next issue will hopefully be available in about a week.

You don't have to have a lot of experience, you just have to be able to piece together a few simple sentences - and submit them to the SECRET ONLINE WRITING MARKETS that most people have absolutely NO idea about.

Getting Organized
- A Writer’s Tale


 

ŠPaul Callaghan– All Rights Reserved

 

OK, I admit it. I was suckered by all those promises of being able to ‘work when I wanted’ when I started as a freelance writer. I really thought that if I could just write when the muse struck me I would make enough money to live well.

The reality of making a living from writing is very different. I probably put in more hours with my writing business than I ever did as an English teacher. If I’m not strict enough with how I spend those hours then I don’t get paid. And I like eating. I’m funny like that.

When I was only publishing once or twice a month it was never a problem. These days I have a great deal more work than that (not that I’m complaining!) and so it has become important to make sure that I spend my time efficiently.

A Working Writer’s Day

I’m an early riser. I love to get up before the bedlam that is my family life explodes into action. First job is to scan my emails. I don’t actually read that many of them at this time though, because most of them will be looked at later during my research time. I subscribe to numerous newsletters about freelance writing, SEO, social media and about the subjects that I write for other people on.
