Written by Nikki Dee

As long as I can remember I have been a writer. My aspiration was always to be the next Stephen King, and I was several years into my freelance writing career before I realized I was making a living as a writer.

It was so strange to think that being a freelance writer, ghostwriter, blogger and editor meant that I was making money as a writer - because I had always just thought that I wouldn't be a real writer until I had published my first fiction book.

This post is all the resources and helpful tips that I have gathered over years of making money with all kinds of writing. I hope you find it helpful to get started, grow and create a writing career that you love.
