The Writer, The Brand | Writing is a Talent

Let me tell you about one of the very first times that I made money from my writing. I literally felt like I had stolen from the person or gotten over on them because they paid me $50 for a bio and it was a ridiculous feeling to have. Ha! They reached out to me, I told them the price, I did the work and that was that. Oh BTW this was when I first started so don’t try looking at my “Work With Me” page trying to compare. In either case, the root of that feeling was based on the fact that it was easy for me. I didn’t even have to write a second draft and they were super pleased.
