The First 3 Steps You Can Take to Make a Living Writing

Since the last Tribe Writers class I taught in the Spring, I’ve been busy. In the months since, I’ve spoken with hundreds of writers, asking them where they are getting stuck and how to work through those challenges.

I’ve been coaching, teaching, and learning a lot — all with the intent of better helping you, my dear reader and fellow writer.

I’ve been studying the methods of successful writers from all genres, and what I’ve developed is a 12-step roadmap that will help just about any struggling writer break through to the next level.

The best part? The first few steps are easy.

So, today, my goal is simple. I want to help you achieve your first three steps right now. Here they are:

  • Step 1: Clarify your writing voice with a worldview. It’s not just what you write, but how you write it that matters. I’ve got an exercise on how to do this. If you need help, go watch this video and follow the “worldview exercise”.
  • Step 2: Figure out what kind of platform you’re going to have. The way you do this is by defining your platform personality. If you need help with this, go watch my video on how to decide what platform personality best fits you.
  • Step 3: Launch a blog and begin sharing your work with the world. If you need help with this, go watch this 8-minute tutorial on how to set up a self-hosted blog on WordPress. This is what most of the pros do. I recommend it.

Now, what do you do after that?

How do you take a blog and turn it into thousands of readers?

How do you turn that audience into a writing career, one in which you actually make enough money to live on?

Well, that’s what we’ll cover in this live training happening this week:

The 3 Most Profitable Ways to Make a Living Writing Today

In 90 minutes, I’ll teach you my WHOLE process, everything I’ve learned from coaching thousands of struggling writers, helping them succeed — and how you can follow in their footsteps. I won’t hold anything back, and I’ll answer as many questions as I can.

Real writers do the work

So, here’s your assignment today:

  1. Complete steps 1-3 in The Writer’s Roadmap (see list above).

Too many writers have faded into obscurity for all time because they neglected these simple steps. The roadmap isn’t easy, or everyone would do it, but it is a proven method you can use to make a living writing.

  1. I would love to start writing Jeff. Now, if possible. But, I am facing a dilemma which got me stuck, really stuck, for years.
    You see, I am writing, speaking and reading three different languages daily. Dutch (my native tongue), Spanish (local language of the country I live in) and English (language I do business in). I love the English language and I feel comfortable speaking and writing it. Nevertheless, I am not sure if it will be good enough for a story or article. Grammatically and vocabulary speaking Dutch is the language I dominate best, but I kind of lost the connection. Spanish on the other hand is my least preferred option, simply because I feel something is missing.

    What would you suggest me to do? In which language would you recommend me to write?

    I would highly appreciate your help.

  2. Hi Jeff
    Thank you so much for your posts and mails – it’s really helping a lot. Honestly, the only thing standing in my way to becoming a successful writer, is me. I have time, I have ideas, I’m just not getting there.
    If I think about it, what I really need, is someone who can hold me accountable. Accountable to stick to ONE book idea and follow it through, ONE blog post… every, single, week.
    I guess I solved the problem, just not sure where to find that person who is willing to check up on my every couple of days. Someone who understands a creative mind which easily drifts off into a zillion directions!

  3. That is exactly what I need right now for my blog! Thanks so much for all the hard work Jeff! I am going to read the 12-step-guide now and I am looking forward for the webinar!
    Great stuff as always!

  4. Hello! I found this blog through a school assignment this semester on discourse communities and ended up realizing it’s a good place to hear from other writers. My major is creative writing and I’m going into my senior year of college. I was just wondering people’s thoughts are on uploading writing to ebooks? I was planning on uploading a recently finished short story.
    Someone in 1 of my classes said they were planning on uploading a collection of poetry and it sounded like an interesting way to get my own writing out…
    Also, I just got 3 of my writing pieces published in an online-student-run literary & art magazine for my school, which includes a short story, poem, and a series of micro-narratives. Would I be able to share the link to that here if anyone was interested in reading them? I currently don’t have a blog for personal writing(I actually had to create one this semester for the class that I found this blog for).

    1. It is best to start the blog now. I follow most of Jeff”s article and they helped me a lot. I should have started long before.

  5. Hello Jeff, I love your articles. Always so helpful. My struggle is I have a small following, I’ve had some speaking success, I’ve written lots of articles for websites, but I’ve yet to make one dollar. I am hoping the more I write the better I get then opportunities will open up for me to benefit financially. Can you chime in with this?

  6. By the way I read It’s not too late and working on what I ‘ve learned from that this time. I read also the 12 Steps. I followed what I have learned from you last year and so far my blogging gets better and now working on email subscription. I hope to join the tribe conferences in the near future

  7. If you want to write living writing you have to feel the value of writing from the heart. Because without it you can’t do even paperwritten. So who are beginning level fellow I recommend them to follow this article. Because this article is full of info top to bottom, which is highly useful.
