Making money writing stories
I' m just thinking about my own times, which I write and publish through the lenses of a businessman and businessman. In 2014 I began to write seriously and published 4 volumes until the end of 2017. It took me a few years to research what accomplished authors did and how best to make their work work.
I' ve spent countless my time writing talks and reading them, story by story, dialog, conflicts, good personalities and almost every other aspect of it. I' ve been studying the best films and reading the best psychological literature to really get into my characters' minds. Getting up an extra minute early, making my cup of tea while everyone else was still sleeping, I created the lovely, imaginative universe for my readership.
I' ve written poems, literature and young adults' novels. The highest price I could pay for the cover of my book, editorial work, advertising, website construction, etc. I' d have been satisfied with a fine pencil or something relatively cheap. They are some of the nasty things about being a novelist, trying to publish and selling your work.
Are there innumerable items, textbooks, videos and other things that annoy former authors like me and would-be authors for'crushing' writer's dream. Only Google "no money in fiction", "how to make money writing fiction" ou "realistic earnings for authors" und Sie erhalten Beweise für beide Seiten. But I' m happy that I went before I began to hating writing.
Obviously you must not have any of these in your writing careers, but I will tell my tale in as much detail as possible. But with Amazon (namely Kindle) letting the eBook rates be so low, many authors have given up on the notion of boosting for their first ever work!
Pro authors suggest to serialize it and then $. 99 Cent for volume 2 and maybe $1. 99 for volume 3! Somebody (a writer) has taken the liberty to *craft* a history or work, to work on it and make it public for the whole wide globe. I' m asking, maybe the reader has become too spoilt and expects free of charge and of high qualitiy?
Perhaps it is the supersaturation of the released works? According to The Statistics Portal, the number of ledgers released in 2017 was around 338,000. It' s like having read a diamond in the past (worth more) and now that anyone can make a copy, and a growing number of folks have made one, the offer is the need for any work.
So I sent free paper back and e-book reviewed specimens for Amazon and good readings, money I liked to spend (on the book, bookmarking and shipping) and I got sound feedback in the hope that it would result in *SOME* sell. I' ve given away free paperbacks of my Goodread book every months and now I've noticed that I've only lost money.
As a graduate in England (I have studied A LOT and analysed tonnes of books) and have been teaching 6-12 classes in England and abroad. I' ve been reading classic stories, children's literature, young adults and many others. Now I have the feeling that I can't spend so much more reading with my work, my work and my world!
Then, how many other people out there felt like they were fed up with my fictions and concentrated more on reading/listening after hands-on experience? Did we run out of good stories or new stories? Don't get me misunderstood, there are masterworks of destiny that I will keep studying from now and then until the end of the age.
Paulo Coelho's alchemist, Richard Bach's Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Frankenstein and a whole other set of works that were truly transformative and life-changing to me. However, realistic, not to say negatively or cynically, I just want to be impartial, is there a limit at which we can find enough literature to meet our satisfaction and the need to find more?
It was Christopher Booker's Seven Basic Plots that there are of course a limited number of plot guys, but maybe we just keep repeating the same stories and just change the name. What is the number of new literature that will be published that comes near to those popular and well-proven?
I' m aware that some of our titles only become famous after they have been released, but the basic idea is the same: can we run out of stories? Are we running out of good stories and new ones? An enthralling volume about reasoning and errors did it for me, and that was to bring me to my own goals, both personally and professionally, to think more clearly and not to become a prey to prejudice and errors of cognition.
Now more than ever, new TV shows, YouTube shows, Podcasts and more opportunities for consumer enjoyment are available, and I have the feeling that writer and writer are lagging behind, relatively not absolutely. In fact, writer are getting an ever smaller piece of the cake. I must credit the moments of real clearness with two books:
Both of these ledgers gave me the blow of the real that I needed to be able to live on my own clichés. Authors are weaving a marvelous whimsical woven environment (I really adore alliteration) and that's a beaut!
We sometimes need to know when it is necessary to reduce our loss and move on to the next one. Survivorship bias is another misapprehension we are falling into: if we only see stories of achievement because they are shown more than the winners. What about authors?
It came to prominence in 1973 with Carrie and there are several reasons that make it irretrievable today. We had no broadband network, no smartphones, no piracy, no e-books, no telephone applications and no self-publication. In principle, there were more bookkeepers and less opportunity for conversation, so it was a good way to get bored.
As the number of lexicons of books and authors continues to increase, along with a dwindling proportion of those who read for their free time, what are the odds that one of us will achieve Stephen King or not? We certainly had some degree of succes, we don't all want to be Stephen King, but I didn't have the patience to stay here and hoped if there were more clear, practicable ways to make money.
All I can think of is how much more work, money and work I would have put in if I had closed my eyes to the compelling proof around me and told myself that I would probably never make a pay check for one hours of my writing hours. In order to get a clear picture of how much money, work, money and trouble it would take to really lead a life as an author, I would suggest The Science and Marketing Podcast YouTube Movie Sequence by a bunch of freelance publishers who earn their livelihood with their sci-fi books: https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=.....
How much writing has taken? Several of my works were authored over many years and only quickly released after I chose to really concentrate on writing money. I' ve been writing and publishing this volume in about nine month. The writing of the first design was a great deal of pleasure and was very arduous, but I was amazed at how difficult it was to shine the tale and prepare it for release .
That' s when I found something many authors have to fight with: the passion for writing, but a great hate to rewrite what has already beenritten. I' m glad to say that since finishing writing I'm getting on to start a small enterprise (which involves some technical/business writing, so I get my wealth) and it's becoming more and more ýlyrative.
All I can do is think that with all the work I have put into writing literature, writing literature and other literature, I can SEE REAL RESULTS. Figures don't tell lies and since I quit writing literature and just concentrated on the growth of my small company. I' m a free-lance author and I write ads, booklets, commercial dialogues and tutors in German language classes.
I' m pleased to say that I earned more money in the first 2 month of 2018 than in my 4 years of writing from 2014 to 2017. Sure, I was selling some of my book and making some money, but after I calculated my expenditure (traveling, making the book, payment for envelopes, bookmarking, etc.) I was a few tens of bucks in the park.
To avoid depressing/exerting myself by splitting this money (well below $100) by the number of lessons I had devoted to writing and rewriting the work. Writing fictions was not a viable way to earn money outside my work. As I said at the beginning of my early breakfast session, I loved every moment of it and can even come back for a few brief periods of writing creatively, except that this is a much, much more real work and results.
I' ve done enough self-psychoanalysis to know I could rationalize my shortage of writing skills, but hey, take this contribution for what it's valuable, use it for what you can, and ignore the other.
