I’ve been contemplating on how to make money writing for a while now. I read a blog outlining pitching ideas to publishers, magazines, etc., so I went and pitched a couple of ideas of my own (about ten so far).
Consequently I felt like a massive loser because I only got two (2) human responses – as opposed to the automatically generated ‘thank you for contacting us’ response – but nothing in terms of income has eventuated. Talking to the bf today I realised that is still pretty darn good; that’s a 20% reply rate, and if anything I should be encouraged.
My eyes are opened and today the glass is half full!
