I Could Be A Paid Writer By This Weekend

Well, after the long and oft interrupted task of writing chapter six of my novel, I decided today would be the day I completed the 10th and final training article for MoviePilot. That article is now done, which means I’m now eligible to ¬†apply for Verified Creator Status, meaning I’ll be seeing my first ever paychecks related to writing.

I’m going to Scrooge McDuck this joint up.

It has been a learning journey, some articles being favorites of mine not doing terribly well, while others becoming unexpected hits. My Alien: Covenant article for example, which I thought was half assed, ended up being my biggest hit so far, probably because the movie was currently trending.

Tonight I thought I would take a trip down memory lane and write a little number on slasher films. Many consider these films sexist, but if you watch some of the better examples of the genre, you can actually find some very positive messages for young women out there looking to make their ways in the world. That’s what always attracted me to the genre more than anything else. I hope you’ll all agree.

Tomorrow it will be back to business as usual as I plow through chapter seven of my novel. I expect this chapter to whiz on by as it will largely be a port from the previous draft with some edits here and there to flesh it out. The book is coming along. The end is on the horizon.

Hope you all like my article, and I’ll let you know when the next one comes up.

Soon I’ll Be Getting Paid For Writing

Well, Sunday went well as expected. I wasn’t able to wrap up Chapter 4, but I did get a whopping 11 pages done on the book. Also, chapter 4 was finished Monday, so all is well. I took a brief break from the book the last two days in order to work on my writings for MoviePilot, and was able to find out how much I would be getting paid for each article. It’s about as much as I was expecting.

I have completed several more articles for the website, which means I just need to do one more before I can apply to be paid for my work. There were some fallbacks. For example, my article for Alien: Covenant was pretty much finished when I accidentally deleted it and there was no undo button. I had to re-write the entire thing, a process that took two hours.

Honestly, I’m pretty excited. The idea of getting paid for my work in writing, however little, is awesome.

My latest articles are for Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom,¬†a live action Pokemon movie and Schindler’s List. Feel free to read and share them at your leisure. Anything that will help me get more traffic. But starting next week, we shall see if this will start filling my bank account.

I’m on my way to being a paid writer!

Tomorrow I’ll be attempting to finish up Chapter 5 on my book. It’s already halfway done now. In any case, it will be done by Monday for sure.

Thanks all for reading this and happy writing.
