Lessons I Learned As An Online Writer
If you’re following me here you probably noticed that last month my page was full of “lessons I learned“. Truth be told, I did learn a lot working online as a writer. But I do have a lot more left to learn. My eyes are open to the immensity of stuff that’s still missing from my list of skills.

Here’s the glass half-full: the lessons I did learn
 You don’t have to spend money on training; you have to spend time searching for free training(you’ll find it; it’s there).  Write like a romantic and you’ll get fired.  All clients are not equal.  Start simple, with no great expectations.  Set goals.  Write all day, Hemingway.  Don’t refuse clients who pay less but give you constant work.  Try to avoid working at home… or you’ll get fat. If you do work at home, first make sure the fridge is empty.  Weekends are yours; don’t use them for work.  Send “Thank you!” emails.  Buy a set of headphones. Have Skype interviews.  Have a website done for you.  You won’t have time to write on your own website. But you do need a website nonetheless.  Have a custom email address. No gmail, no ymail, no, no, no.  Reach an agreement regarding payment BEFORE you start working on a project.  Write the first article for free as a test. Always.  Each week have your own study day. Learn something new.  Can you exceed expectations? You can ask for a bigger price.  Refuse a project if you can’t complete it within the ETA.  Learn about SEO and Online Marketing. Cuz u r ur own brand, ya know?  Use highlighters when working; brainstorm everything.  Write ideas on a piece of paper before you start writing the actual piece of content.  Use Google Books to read books you can’t afford to buy.  Join as many free webinars as you can… and take notes.  Tell great stories that people love. We love stories when we’re 5 just as much as we love them when we’re 50. www.biancamarieta.com | www.biancamarieta.com
