Many writers email to ask if I think they
should write fiction or non-fiction. My answer will always be
When I was starting out, I was only
interested in fiction. What I later discovered is that I’m good
at writing both, and enjoy both, so why not utilize each form of
writing? From my own experience if you are able to work in more
than one area, you’ll sell more of your work, more often.
A couple of years ago I decided to do more report writing
and copywriting etc., and have boosted my income considerably by
The bottom line is, we’re writers, and like
other professionals, we can easily multi-skill. If you want more
income from your writing, learn as much as you can about
different areas of the craft.
I know loads of writers who are
multi-skilling, but they don’t have their services listed on
their websites. When I’ve asked them why, they’ve told me they
simply didn’t think of listing their services. Why not? How can
editors, publishers and/or clients find your services if they
don’t know they exist?
If you’re not sure what services you can
provide, brainstorm. Write a list of all the writing-related
things you can do. For instance:
Business card design
Letter head design
There is so much scope for your writing
services, and so much money to be made.
To see how you can easily tailor your
services to suit your expertise and/or qualifications, go to
check out some of the services I'm offering.
If you want to sell a particular service but
don’t have the knowledge or expertise, educate yourself and
monetise your writing business.
What are you waiting for? Get writing!
