I am an inspirational writer, bro. Sure I'd like to make a little cash, but I suspect that it will start happening when I turn 65, God's willing. I will put the effort in then.
I have probably made 30 - 40 dollars here, and I understand I won't get a cheque until it gets larger, probably 100 dollars.
I came to tell you to visit Bill's Mailbag and to ask this Question there. It comes out just after 14:00 hrs every Monday, UK time. Google Billybuc and it should take you to him. He will give you a useful answer.
Writing requires patience and hard work. Much marketing is involved so you may need to know how to use Facebook and Twitter very well. There are courses on this, but they will set you back probably about 180 dollars.
The two main ways for writing, or should I say publishing your work is either the traditional way or self-publishing. I know companies which will do everything for you but charge about 12 -15,00 dollars. But you have to write the book obviously.
People on Hub Pages will probably tell you what you have to do. You will have to sign up, of course via your Hub Pages account. All the details are there. I hear that asking a lot of questions help, and of course you will need to write Stella Hubs.
I would suggest that you practice your writing skills; Read a lot of top literature, and you will get better. Also learn the marketing skills if you wish to do it yourself. There are many writers here (those who sell books) and if you put the right question out, someone is bound to offer help or suggestions. Start with a question to Bill on his Writer's Mailbag. Be patient and practice lots.
