Starting to Write? My Top Tips

Start Writing, Start Earning Money!

As writers we are always looking for better ways to write, better resources, better references, better websites and more money to earn. Over the last several years, I have used several websites, to help me become a better writer and continue to improve to earn more money. Although, for me it's now about the money that I earn but more the learning of my writings and how to improve my writings. The good news is why I am learning, I am also able to make extra money and I hope that helps others. These websites are not geared towards making money, BUT to improve your writings and help you as a writer, which indirectly makes more money for you in the long run!
