Emerging Writers becoming Professional Writers

This article is about helping Emerging Writers become Professional Writers.  Actually that is what the whole website is about.  Hmm.  Well, I will be more specific.  This article is about earning cash.

I have seen it too many times.  Sell-out-syndrome.  It was everywhere at Art school.  I remember a general rule that if you made money from being an Artist and selling your work, then you were commercial, unauthentic and a sell out.  I don’t believe it.  I think earning money from writing is great.

I am currently earning a little money from my writing.  I am working on an article at the moment for an Art review website in Singapore.  Yes, I am in Singapore right now.

It is a great feeling to put together an article, read it through, send it off, get some feedback and make the changes.  It is wonderful to know you are going to get paid for the work you’re doing and a great feeling to know it is about to be published.   I got this job because I applied directly through their website when I found out I was going to be in Singapore.
