I was just looking at my Excel log where I keep track of articles I've sold so I can check to see if they've printed and then send invoices each month. I realized I'd already sold articles for 6 different months in 2012. I used to just write what I wanted to write about, then I started trying to write something for every month of the year.
Are you thinking ahead with your writing? Now is a great time to write down your goals for next year ... do you want to write one new article per month or do you want to write one new article per WEEK while also sending out queries to nationals and blogging for money? I'd love to hear what you have in the works!
