I love writing, I enjoy it so much that i want to make a living at it but i don't know how. And apparently according to everyone else I could make a killing at it if i wanted to. Could anyone out there please let me know how i can become a successful writer? Or at the least where to start?
You'll find that many people who write on HubPages also write freelance. I've got several hubs about freelance writing websites and how they work if you want to check them out.
Best advice I've heard for getting started is...
Write, write, write, write, write, and then write some more. Find places like HubPages to get it out there so other people can see it and you can get feedback. But write, write, write and keep writing!
Then, while you are writing, define for yourself what you consider to be 'successful'. You will need to know what you are aiming for before you can take aim.
One more thing, based on reading your profile, I would say learn to break up your writing into smaller paragraphs. Unless you have a really compelling writing style, your readers will find it bothersome to digest such large paragraphs.
I have similar goals. Just this past summer, I started to add to my writing portfolio more seriously. I found websites to write for, wrote letters to the editor, etc. In the beginning, it's nearly impossible to get paid for it, so just use those opportunities to practice your craft and build up a portfolio. The money and career will come later.

Are you a writer who reads or a writer who doesn't read?Almost every article on how to become a good writer emphasizes the necessity to read, read, read. I am not a reader per se; I can't sit down with a novel and almost never read purely for enjoyment. I get all of my information from...

Hi all,I just joined hubpages a day ago. I've only posted two hubs so far. I actually joined as I love writing and write from my heart. I just posted an article about improving self-confidence which I hope some of you will read (I used to have very little self-confidence but now am a tiger). It...
