Calling All Writers … Tell Me Your Story

“I finally found a way to make a living as a writer! I’m averaging about $150 an hour now and I only work a few hours each morning, leaving me with most of the day to pursue my first love: Fiction.”

That’s the story of an aspiring author who became a copywriter to make real money, so that he could have more time to pursue his real writing passion.

But he’s not the only one.

Sherwood Anderson … Helen Gurley Brown … F. Scott Fitzgerald … Dashiell Hammett … Joseph Heller … Salman Rushdie … Amy Tan and many other famous authors all “financed” their writing careers through copywriting.

If you’re a published author of books, magazine articles, poetry, script writing – or hope to be one very soon … and, like the famous folks above, are “paying the bills” with copywriting, I’d like to hear your story.
