“What Did You Write Today?”
A writer we’ll call Ryan contacted me. He’s been writing for online publications like The Atlantic, and the pay is minimal. He’s paid around $100 for a well-researched article. He’d make more per hour if he took a cleaning job. Since his day job is coming to an end, Ryan wants to know how to make more money from his writing.
I asked him: “What did you write today?” He told me he hadn’t written anything. He’s sent out a few queries, and he’s waiting to hear from the editors.
