Adopting Writing as an Alternative Source of Living
The journey through acquisition of knowledge through education is long, tiresome and very fruitful. It is amazing how a person can make him/her useful by proper usage of the knowledge that they have acquired in school. Every student hopes to land a job once they complete their course at the various educational levels, although it does not always work out that way.
Sometimes we end up spending unending internships in promising companies which may not even absorb you once you complete your internship program. In many other times, we end up spending a lot of time doing things which do not add up value to us just in the effort to provide for ourselves. When I completed my high school education, I had very limited choices of what I could do with my life.
More regrettably, I had not attained the minimum grade that was required to join any institution of higher learning. However, I was good at other skills such as communication and computer use, and my writing prowess was quite appealing.
Taking the Step Forward to Creating Impressive Content
During the Easter holiday, I decided to visit my grandmother who lived in the city with his son, my uncle. His daughter who was a little bit older than me had joined college and she was in her final year in college. She was determined to complete her education and secure an employment in a reputable firm.
I got engaged in a discussion with her about how she would approach life after she had completed her studies. It is then than she disclosed to me about the numerous opportunities that are available online for content writing, content writing and affiliate marketing for online customers. She introduced me to what she does while at home and when she is not attending classes when in college.
He was a freelance writer of academic papers and articles that she wrote for online clients for a pay. She encouraged me to try the same with her assignments and when I wrote a few of them, she was impressed with my work, although it needed some corrections and improvements. I decided to prolong my stay so that I could learn more and enough to enable me to work on my own once she went back to college for her final semester.
The Definitive Moment that enabled me Explore my Potential in Writing
When I went back home, I shared with my parents about the noble opportunity that was available online that could enable me to make my own money at home. I was appealing enough to convince them to buy me a computer and a modem that would enable me to work. I searched online for the most appealing content that people search online.
Since I was good in creating, narrating and writing fictional stories since my elementary school, I decided to focus on writing stories about life experiences and posted them on social media. My stories received a little attention during my few weeks but as I grew more fond about writing and gained more following, my stories caught the eyes of many readers. I formed a social group online that encouraged me to continue writing more creative stories and posts.
After five months, one of my online clients was so inspired by my writing and he invited me to his writing bureau where he offered to sponsor me and nurture my talent. He signed me up with one of his online clients who had developed several sites that posted fictional and creative articles on life experiences, adventure, morality and living with certain chronic diseases. I was so excited since I got the opportunity to join a decent career that could help me turn my life around for the better, despite my lack of higher education.
I started writing creative stories as required and within no time, I had grown to be one of the best online writers as recommended by our clients. I became inspired enough to write e-books about my life and several other motivational articles that attracted several customers.
Due to my stories, several prominent personalities sought my input in writing about their lives and paid handsomely for my work. I was able to connect to various publishers too who sought to collect my work and publish it. That was when it dawned on me that I could become an important person through writing stories that could inspire people, especially the online breast cancer community.
