While the lion's share of my work is nonfiction (mostly ghostwriting these days), I'm a novelist as well. And I'm not alone--there are a lot of freelancers out there who have a novel or short stories in the works. That's why I was happy to write a guest post for author Kelly Stone on how to fit fiction into your writing life. I've been enjoying her 90-day writing challenge (well, not enjoying it all the time, but I'm glad I'm doing it) and plan to finish my new novel soon.
**Next up, the 2012 Income Survey results! Stay tuned! :)
**And finally, readers, I'm curious--do you write both fiction and nonfiction? Let me know!
Writing Is Hard Work

I enjoyed reading your guest post! I especially like the advice to do it first thing and get it out of the way.ReplyDelete
I used to write a lot of fiction. Like, 8,000 words a day. Then stuff got in the way, and I can't seem to plunge back in.
I do write nonfiction, though -- I'm a writer for the Daily Muse, which has been fun. I find that writing articles is a great activity for people with a zillion interests!
Glad I found your blog -- I'll definitely be back.
Thanks, Sarah! I agree it's harder to balance both fiction and nonfiction. Both have their payoffs, but i tend to push fiction to the bottom of the list because there's no guaranteed money from it. Still, I find it very satisfying when I make time for it! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for your comment and I hope you enjoy the blog! :)
I am so happy to find this blog. I write both fiction and non-fiction, but haven't been highly successful at selling myself. I would love to make money writing. I will definitely return to learn what I can.ReplyDelete
