I've actually submitted 5 articles to AC this month. That's the most I've did with them in a long time. The idea's just came to me and I went with them. They bought one so far and the others are still being reviewed. I hope they buy them all! I never get much for my articles because I'm not good with keywords, but every little bit helps.

I have tried writing articles, I just can't get the hang of it. I am not going to give up. I don't have that much time now to put into this, when I get jobless I will try again. I got the inspiration from you. Maybe you can help me out with this in the future.

Sure, I'll be glad to help all I can. I'm not the best at this but I'm learning all the time. You really should check out the Accentuate Writers Forum. They have some great writing tips, excellent writers that offer encouragement, and you can get feedback. It's just a great place with wonderful people.

I have months like that too, where things just flow out of me, and then I will go for a couple of months with almost no ideas at all. I always check the call for content, to see if there is anything there I can write about. What is your name over on Associated Content, I would love to read your articles? Congratulations on them buying one, hopefully they will buy the rest.

Cool, I need to send some stuff to them but I just can't find the time to sift through all the stuff. You've inspired me, I'll start working on something tonight.

Good luck with it! I hope my new articles do well on there. I really need to learn how to do better with keywords. I just can't "get" it compeletely.

Good for you! I haven't submitted anything to AC this month and probably won't since I don't have any ideas. All of the articles I wrote for DS when I got back online a couple of weeks ago burnt me out with article writing. I have more ideas for short stories though, which I would rather write anyway. I will get back into AC probably in November. Keep submitting! :)

Well, I do some kind of story almost every day. Mostly flash fiction for my blogs. Those are definitely more fun. If only they paid as well!

Yeah that would be nice if we could find a place that bought our short stories like that. There are places where we can submit them to but we have to wait and see if they even want them. Sometimes they will let us know and sometimes they won't. :)

I have two submitted to a contest and two for publication right now. I'll know about the contest after Halloween, but the other two could be a while. I'm nervous!

Hey sunnflr. That's cool that you've submitted 5 articles to AC this month. Congrats on selling one. Yeah, they tend not to pay much but usually the ones they buy they do something special with them that I can't figure out and they get more page views. The more I've written for the internet the better I've gotten with the keyword thing. Plus, I've read alot on Helium and AC about how to increase page views. Anyhoo, good luck with your 4 pending articles and hope AC buys them. But remember, even if they don't, you can still go for performance pay on the ones that don't sell. Take care.

wow good for you, I had 1 article last month and that was it. I did write last May and followed but last month.. hahaha.. then I have another one this month and not yet done. I am lazy now writing articles with AC since I had lots before but some were declined for upfront payment.. that is why I am a little bit discourage. I just write when I have topic in mind that goes with the season. Anyway, hope your articles will be doing fine.. I have to finish mine this month. If i can have 1 a month? it is just fine with me.

It's all up to the individual. Writing is like that. Just write when you feel like it. Unless you are doing it for a living like me. Then you HAVE to write.
