Writing articles for the love of art is a great way to make money! When you love to do something and you follow that love, you will find a way to produce monetary value through the promotion of, or product of, that which you love!
Writing articles for money, is no different than painting a picture, or creating a pottery piece. It requires some thought, some interesting twists, some creative promoting and some sense of fulfilling a need!
The value of an article can only be determined by the person who pens it! Others may find no need for the information you write, does this make your piece of art of no value? No, the value lies in what you, the artist produce from your heart.
Often we place value to an artwork, by the number of people who appreciate the work itself, making the cost of such apiece more valuable.
In the case of penning an article, it is not only the piece, but the artist themselves, who add value to the art form.
Will someone jump out there and purchase your article? More than likely not, however, there may be someone who recognizes the talent you have for putting into words, certain ideas and concepts that others may not have.
You may be asked to do piecework or some other form of writing that will enable you to continue doing what you love, while receiving remuneration for your talents.
Don’t give up that which you love, if you need to continue in an avenue of work that you are not prone to, just to pay the bills, start writing on the side. Make a plan and a regimen that will deliver productive writing efforts.
It’s okay to start out with small writing jobs or volunteering your writing for a local newspaper to get accustomed to being read.
When you do that which you love, you will discover ways to market your wares in a successful paying manner.
