Making a career in writing is neither easy nor extremely hard. Like every other field, the two most important things you’ll be needing is the passion to write and the openness to be corrected for your wrongs. Criticism will be there, just like in any other job. You’ll need to correct yourself of the wrongdoings that others point towards you.
I’ve been giving this thing a thought lately. I wanted to be a blogger since some six years back and after these thousands of days, I’m still not the blogger that I wished of becoming back at that time. Somewhere in middle, I was doing good, really really good. I was convinced that I could write good and given a proper amount of time and research resources, I was affirmative that I could write on any topic. And I did write at that time. I did good.
It’s been more than a year that I haven’t written on a regular basis. After all this time, I find difficulty in forming proper sentences and generating creative description on topics. A can’t go more than a couple of hundred words if I were to not insert fillers. This blog has a lots of fillers and this blog is the only thing that I’m writing in.
Just like 6years back, I’m thinking of a career in writing once again. This time, it’s more of a serious necessity than just a wish. I am attending college after a few months and I will be in need of money to sustain myself. Working more than 18 hours is not allowed and I don’t want to work illegally. If I were to start writing and develop my style in a few months, I think earning an extra grand won’t be a tough call. I can work on upwork and other freelancing website and if I’m giving quality content, I’ll be getting the dollar I demand.
I’m already excited about this. I just wish for this excitement to remain for a few weeks more. I will try writing a blog post every day and devote 10 hours extra to writing and improving my style. I’ll ask my friends to read the pieces I write and criticize them honestly. I’ll take their suggestion and improve to a greater extent. I also need to improve my grammar. It clearly sucks as of now.
