Making good money from writing, It’s not possible… is it? Unless you are one of the lucky few… Or, If you believe the hype about copywriting, maybe it is!

Copywriting. What’s it all about? And is it really as fantastic as those websites say it is? Well, I had no idea up until recently myself! (And am still figuring it out..)

Yes, like most apisiring writers, I’ve signed up for all the different writing-related e-newsletters out there, from the mainstream Australian Writer’s Centre to the amazing teachings of Holly Lisle. And most, if not all of them, have spoken at one point or another, about the mysterious world of copywriting.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t believe the hype the first time I heard about it. I mean, it sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Get paid huge sums to write?!! They make it sound so easy, almost as though the course advertisements were written by amazing… dum da da dum copywriters! Haha.

I’ve always seen it heralded as some amazing, lucrative way to earn money through creative writing. That is, of course, while you simultaneously pursue your own true passions in whatever creative writing field you choose (like writing that long-winded fantasy novel) that keeps you poorer than the days before Christmas!

Copywriting, Moneybags? Quick cash? Or scam?
Money, money, money! …Money?

After weighing up the pros and cons and feeling pretty unsure about my career right now (plus being the naturally curious and eager-to-expand-my-repertoire kind of person I am) I decided to sign-up for the latest round of online classes for Copywriting Essentials with the Australian Writer’s Centre Continue reading Making good money from writing, It’s not possible… is it?

How to start blogging again after a long, long, long break: Just write something!

Hello loyal reader/s!

I bet you’re wondering, where have I been for 6+ months?! Well, if you’re one of my ONLY subscribers (you know who you are! Mum.) You also know that it’s been a crazy few months of moving, job-seeking, relationship drama’s and various other excuses I have for not updating. And obviously my last entry was all about getting back into it, so I can see why you are confused! If you’re still reading that is!

But it doesn’t mean I haven’t been doing some writing, even if it was only a little bit. The urge to write never, ever truly leaves me and I doubt it ever will.

So, I’m back, baby! Yay! Let’s see how long it lasts this time! < Optimism 🙂

A question that has plagued mankind for 10’s of years

So, as some of you may or may not know, I am currently studying Phlebotomy.

If you don’t know what that is, don’t worry, nobody does. Just Google it, I’ll wait here, patiently, don’t worry…

Alright, so now you know, I am going to ask a question that is full of deep, profound mysticism.

Ready? Okay, here we go:

Does wanting/practicing to be a creative writer help with studying other things? Like say, in exams or worksheets, assignments, power-points, presentations etc…

In order to answer this question I had to probe the deepest recesses of my mind, reaching places so unfathomable I came back a truly changed individual. The conversation went a little something like this:

Me: Brain, do you think creative writing helps you whilst doing this course?

Brain: ….Ummmh, yeah,maybe…I don’t know, not really….

Me: Wow! The d-deep unfathomable wisdom that is spewing forth from you, I j-just can’t handle it!

So there you have it! You can sleep soundly tonight, the answers are here.
