If inspiration were perfume, we’d all be wearing it. Daily. Spritzing as we went about our activities. But unfortunately, inspiration is a finicky character that picks and chooses when it rears its scented head. Sigh!
But what if I told you that I want to inspire you to write? Not only when you feel like it, but every day, like clock-work? What if I told you that you don’t need a perfume, what you need is determination.
And a little help from me. And perhaps a writing/blogging course made for you.
You see, I’m a writer and blogger just like you. But, it took me a long time to figure that out. I always knew I wanted to write. Heck, the first time I picked up a pen was after my dog Ducky died when I was eight. I’ve never had a dog since.
Writing, as you might have guessed, has been my solace; my friend.
I’ve written everything from personal essays to novels to sales copy. But underneath all of these pages was an unfocused writer who lacked confidence.
Then I had my kiddos. It’s true that children help clarify your life. Or perhaps, force you to squeeze every minute out of your day (because otherwise, you wouldn’t write).
You’d hide in the bathroom with your smartphone and a chocolate bar (oh so guilty) wondering when you’d truly gain recognition for your writing and blogging.
My kiddos helped clarify that I wanted to make money writing, and I wanted to inspire others to do the same.
I decided to combine my passion for writing/blogging with my experience as an instructor to create, Get Paid to Write Quality Blog Posts. I wanted to take everything I had learned getting an MFA in Creative Writing and my years teaching/writing to INSPIRE YOU to gain the skills to be a successful writer/blogger.You see, I don’t want you to have two kiddos and go, how will I ever reach my true writing/blogging potential?
You’re born with many talents, but perhaps you never had the drive or belief in yourself to reach them. I want to help you.
The saying, “It takes a village,” when it comes to raising children, is how I view writing and blogging. It takes a village to nurture writers and bloggers into the creative geniuses they are, and it starts with a focus on craft.
Recognition as a writer/blogger comes in many forms. You write a blog post and someone (you don’t know) comments on it.
You share your writing with a trusted friend and she gushes about the quality.
But what if you get paid to write an article. And you know, that’s almost the best kind. For some reason, as soon as someone writes a check, transfers the funds, you feel recognized.
We all have the possibility of writing/blogging about many things from parenting to finances to sandwich making (I think I’m hungry) but what do we really want to write about and what is good writing?
Finding my true writing voices(s) took years, and I want to show you how to find your inner muse so that you can earn recognition for your writing/blogging.
Creative types find confidence as elusive as the inspiration perfume. I know, I used to not believe in myself. Confidence comes through finding your writing voice and earning recognition.
Confidence is cultivated and learned.
I want to help you become a confident writer.
Writing/blogging takes time and practice. It’s a muscle that needs flexing. You can learn the craft of writing/blogging, but you need guidance. I will show you the writing process and how to edit your work. I will then dive deep into genre analysis so that you can write in the conventions of each genre. You will discover the tools you need to craft quality prose.
One way to practice is to join our Write 3K in 3 Days Writing Challenge. During this challenge you’ll write a lot. Join us!
I’ve been lucky to have had a few writing mentors that have supported and nurtured me as I grew as a writer. I want to offer this to other writers/bloggers. Not only my writing knowledge but my teaching experience.
A lot of writing courses, the instructor has a fat portfolio but has never taught a day in his life. I have (over ten years experience). I know how to guide you step-by-step.
The myth of the lonely, isolated writer is just that - an urban legend. True, you do mostly write alone in a dark, cold room with a flickering candle (big smile here), but writing/blogging is a conversation with yourself, your editor(s), and your tribe.
In the age of smartphones being our best friend, we need to use them to connect with writers/bloggers on the same journey. The course will help you connect with supportive creatives just like you.
If someone would have explained to my eight-year-old self that writing about my dog passing would lead me down the writer path, I might have stopped right then and there.
Because writing is as much about the craft as it is about selling your words. A pitch is a sales page and writers need to understand sales and marketing. Get Paid to Write Quality Blog Posts writing course will not only inspire you to write but show you how to write a winning pitch.
Information is power. I’m going to give you the hours I’ve spent researching who publishes what in different niches so that you can go straight to their submission guidelines.
I’ve “pieced together” 200+ paying markets to save you time. So you can write and submit easily.
You’re busy. I’m busy. I believe in maximizing your time to reach the best results. But, I’ll make you work. I don’t believe in just telling you how to write. I believe in telling you, giving you good examples, and then having you produce them in your own voice.
In the end, there aren’t true shortcuts in life, but there are secret passageways from the library to the kitchen or from your inspiration to the page.
For those of you who know me, know that my mantra is true change happens due to consistent daily actions over a period of time.
First, it starts with an investment in yourself. A belief that you can get paid to write and gain the confidence to write/blog to your true potential.
Join Get Paid to Write Quality Blog Posts. There are no guarantees, just consistent daily actions over a period of time. I’ll keep saying this until you believe it.
