Over and over again I see a common complaint with people trying to make money writing articles. The biggest problem I see is that people claim that they can’t possibly come up with enough article ideas to make money. While this may seem daunting, the truth is that article ideas are just under your nose, you just have to turn your writer’s mind on.
To effectively come up with topics to write about, look no further than what you already know. Have children? Share your tips about how you get your children ready for school, what healthy lunches you can fix, how you shop to save money for your family. If your forte is dogs, write about the best breeds of dogs for beginners, how to save money on vet bills. The point is, there are every day activities you are involved in and daily interests that you have that can turn into a decent money maker for you.
Don’t get stuck in just one genre of writing. Everyone has many interests, so don’t just limit yourself to certain topics. Branch out, and as your days go by write down things that inspire you, such as how to quickly water your lawn, best items to use for washing your car, how to get an ink stain out of a shirt, etc. There are daily things that you are aware of that you can share with others.
Be open-minded. An article can come out of nowhere, and if you have an interest in something, even so simple as how yarn is made, odds are, you aren’t the only one. Get the article out there.
Type as you think. If you try to write your article by hand before typing it, you will take much longer to get it submitted and published, making your earnings less effective if it took you 3 hours to complete. Type as you are thinking, and eventually you will begin typing even faster than you can get the article in your mind.
Don’t type just for money. You have to enjoy what you do to get a good quality article out there and make an article you are proud of. Don’t type with dollar signs in your head or else you will simply be submitting sub par work that does not have your personality and therefore will not reach a wide audience.
If you are halfway through an article and it just isn’t panning out, don’t finish it. Delete it and move on to other articles. A good writer will actually have a few new articles in mind inspired by the one they are currently on, and often the inspired article topics are much more innovative than the one they’re stuck on.
Write til you can write no more. You can’t expect to make a butt load submitting one or two articles a day. If you manage to come up with ten article topics in one day, get them typed. This is not a part-time job. If you love writing, you have to be dedicated to spend a large number of hours a day typing to get better, make more money, and stay motivated.
If you can’t type a large amount of articles a day, at least type once a day. You have to stay in the writer’s mindset to keep yourself on track. If you don’t type often, sooner rather than later you will find yourself not typing at all. Stay motivated by at least pumping one article out a day.
Keep a notebook handy to write down any topic you believe you can write about. Even simple daily errands can inspire a topic. Got cut off on the road on your way to work? Write an article about road rage. It really is this simple.
Anyone who likes to write is always writing in their heads, and everything is a topic. Nothing is off limits for writing about. You can even get many topics out of just one thing, like television, per se. You can write about how many hours people watch TV a day, the most popular TV shows, and shows to keep children from. The possibilities are endless.
Can you write 10 or more articles a day? Absolutely. Provided you have time, patience, and are willing to put forth the effort, you can easily crank out at least 2 articles an hour once you get the hang of it. You just can’t give up before you even start.
It takes a while to get to the point where you can write many quality articles in one day without hitting a roadblock for ideas. But if you allow yourself to just turn anything and everything into a topic and get it in writing, you will find it easier and easier to just automatically get articles out there like they were pre-written in your mind.
You have to enjoy it, you have to take pride in it, and you have to let yourself be open to any topic that comes to your mind. Before you know it, you can be creating articles faster than you can think.
