Hi, I’m Alexander, founder of Free Write Camp whose mission is to make people writing excellent. I encourage people like you to start writing when you feel that writing can serve you well. I’m neither forcing people to write nor am I evangelizing. I mean you who wants to be a known writer but didn’t dare to express it or acknowledge it for yourself.
I’m almost in the same boat as you. I do write for money as a freelancer (blog posts, promotional texts, copywriting, guides and research-intense pieces) but I also have three day jobs to sustain myself. At one day job I’m writing for an online community, at another one, I’m cleaning households. The third one is where I cold-sell to potential clients and do content marketing (plus copywriting) from time to time to sell better and more.
