So in my first official “writing as career” year (2009 for those following along), I made exactly 0 dollars. So I didn’t do a post about it because, well, that’s a pretty short post.
2010 went better, though not “making a living” level better. But hey, that’ll come.
So here’s the money.
Money earned on novels: 0
Money earned with poetry: 48
Money earned on short stories: 411.76
Money earned from self-published stories: 9.10
Hey, way better than 2009, right? Hopefully the trend continues. Funny though, how it almost works out to one dollar per 1000 words written. It’s like earning a dollar an hour.
I’m not worried. I’m just getting warmed up. Every word I write is practice, ever sale I make is bonus. As I get better at the one, I figure I’ll earn more bonuses.
