Content Or Passion: Balance In The Writing Journey
Is it better to participate in content writing or write for magazine publication?
The above question is actually multifaceted and can help you determine the overall thrust of your freelance writing career.
It has been estimated that a writer will need to pen a million words before a publisher is likely to accept their first work. That means a lot of rejection slips.
So, does that imply that content writing is preferred to the crafting of a book or magazine article?
Well not exactly. Content writing is a means of addressing a short-term need. If the immediate need is cash, then content writing might provide the answer. However, if you are looking for a means of affecting long-term royalty payments or a greater flexibility in the ownership of your material you may look at other publishing options.
