What is the Best way of Making Money for Good Writers?
It is true that money is not everything. But, it is essential for a writer to survive. How can we earn through writing?
It is true that writing in Expert column, Wikinut, Triond etc. can bring us additional income. It will also improve our writing skill. But, at what cost? We have to spend days and nights preparing articles. The more we write, the more we earn. Yes, hard work will be rewarded. Is there any other choice for good writers?
Yes, there is! This article is meant for those who haven’t tried that way so far.
What is the alternative? It is participating in international writing contests! It must not be just for making money but for submitting our best work, to evaluate ourselves.
Contests without entry fee
Most of the contests require entry fee. It ranges from one dollar to a few per entry. Is there any contest without entry fee? Yes! Plenty are there. But, some of those contests with or without entry fee may not be genuine. We may be cheated. So, how can we know about them? How can we take part in good contest?
We can get such information from the website of ‘Winning Writers’ (USA). They themselves are genuine and they also display true contests. There we can get information about more than 150(hundred and fifty) contests without entry fee. They are categorized into neutral, recommended and highly recommended according to the authenticity of the contest. In addition, Winning Writers conduct a humorous poetry contest, 'Wergle Flomp contest,’ every year. No entry fee! Its total prize money is about 2,000 US $! Top prize is of 1,000 US$. Once, I got its honorable mention and it was almost 75 $. They paid me through Western Union. Anyone can join ‘Winning Writers’ free of cost. They send free newsletter to email address 15th of every month.
Not easy, but not Impossible to Win
There are many participants in any international contest. But, we need not be shy to participate. A devoted writer can win one year or another. The achievement not only glorifies the author but makes rich also. Therefore, while writing in blogs, why can’t we try that way also? What is the best method? A good poem, story or essay can be sent for contest first, since most of the contests require unpublished works. If we do not win there, we can use the same work in the blogs later. Is it not a wise thinking?
