Well, I am sure that this discussion would probably be better suited in a writing discussion board, but I also felt that it may get more recognition and possible responses if I was to put it her in Questions and Answers. I would like to ask you all a question regarding writing to make money. I am not talking of mere articles and such that can be done on the internet and are usually paid through adsense, although some do pay through reputation of the article itself. I am asking advice pertaining to becoming an author of short stories and such. Has anyone delved into a writing career or can give me good keywords for a search on how to become a successful writer and stick to it? I would much appreciate any feedback, as I Would like to start possibly writing to make a few bucks

Thank you for your advice and good wishes on my writing. I am going to be writing on love, but I am unsure of the subject. I would like to do research before I delve into writing a book.
