 Building A Successful Writing Career | My Journey So Far As A Professional Writer

As we all know…As we all know…Success doesn’t come overnight. You have to work for it and work hard.

Like every writer, I have my good days where words just keep flowing onto blank pages and I feel like I am high on writing. Sometimes I have so many different writing topics that creep into my head while walking down the street, while watching TV or while talking with a friend. Some days my profile is filled with 10-15 drafts eagerly waiting to be crafted into a wonderful tale.I could remember writing  my first book when i was still in secondary school.

 

 

But there were also some days when there are zero drafts and zero topics that I feel like writing about.  These bad days are when I catch up on my reading and refresh my brain to work even better

 

When I became a part time writer in 2015  I struggled to get notice. I  opened a fiverr account and got no sales for about three months, I was still eager to monitize my writing skills, I  knew my onions, I knew what I could offer… I posted consistently on nairaland and facebook, advertising my writing skills. Little did I know that hard work without smartwork is useless. It wasn’t an easy task. Still no order came my way. Eventually, I resigned myself to my corporate career, working with a marketing firm while Schooling.

But I started serious writing again about two years ago. And after some successes, I made the decision to transition into full-time freelancing.
