View Full Version : sold my first articles

07-15-2005, 10:54 AM
I sold my first articles. They were only on associated content but they were 4 and they sold quickly so it made me feel good. I'd never really tried doing any freelancing before or even non-fiction; but decided that since I had a background in patient teaching as a RN, although I'm retired now, I might as well use it or lose it.

NICE GOING! (Don't speak of a publication as an 'only'...be proud that you're on your way. There are no 'onlys'.) CONGRATS!

Hooray & congrats! Now keep going. :D

"only??" -- Bah!! That's a terrific accomplishment -- don't minimize it. Woot for you! Congrats. :)

Well, I tell you this AC thing is really an odd experience they can keep you busy alright. I sold another one today and it appears that the purchase prices are slowly creeping up (beats the heck out of free though).......and I've already made more than I did on my royalties on 2 books with PA :Hammer: . They must keep busy because these things sell just about as fast as you can write the silly things but I'm not complaining....my jeep broke down...we can use the money!!!

Congrats! You might want to consider starting to expand out into better paying markets --- magazines and the like. Good luck!

Thank you everyone. I ended up selling 5 my first week so I felt pretty good about it. I am thinking about expanding but I want to get some more experience under my belt first since I really don't have background in doing non-fiction articles.

Experienced or not, you must be doing something right, so Yahoo! for you. Keep it up and go forward. You're on a roll now.

Goon on ya'! You are braver than me. I haven't gotten the guts to buy Jenna's freelance book, (I have Outwitting writer's block, though.) I am writing a novel in half hour spurts before my day job and wondering how on earth I could ever write an article or get started. So GOOD FOR YOU! Keep up the good work!
