Writers willing to join hands with me to earn more?
May 18, 2009 2:53pm CST
I am looking to form a chain, or rather a group of writers to join hands. I will share my experience to let you guys know what I mean by this, and how I toppled across this idea. All this started with a post, I replied around 2 weeks back. The lady who posted it wanted to earn around $10 on daily basis. I replied to her post offering some assistance, since at that point I was overburdened with some writing assignments. I personally do not like to overburden my schedules, however at times it is unavoidable. I had few short sleeps than usual due to some writing work piling up with deadlines. A personal message sent to the poster revealed that the person was a writer as well. We exchanged sample works, and I was happy to pass some of my work burden to her. I transferred whatever payment client paid me to her PayPal account. This benefited me in terms of meeting the deadline, and by not refusing a regular client who turned helplessly towards me with his desperate deadlines. The client was happy, and the writer who finished the work on my behalf was happy as well. A few days later, I was left without any writing assignment, and my idle mind thought of catching up with her to see how she was doing. Fortunately for me, she was a bit overburdened with her work, and offered me to share her excess with little bit of early hesitation, not realizing that she actually kept my day which otherwise would have been wasted. Ever since then we are following this practice of burden sharing. Bottom line- The client goes happy, you don’t take stress or miss sleep due to harsh deadlines, work is completed on time and you end up helping a fellow writer do what he or she is best in doing by sharing your burden. A complete win-win situation for everyone involved. If there are serious writers out here who think that they want to join me, and form a chain of writers to share our work burdens, then send me a pm with your yahoo or gmail id, we can chat or perhaps exchange samples on email and help each other out. Other benefits include bidding on multiple projects without the fear of not being able to meet deadlines. We can share writing resources and other useful tips as well. I manage to get more work from forum sites than freelance writing sites like Odesk, etc, something which I would be glad to share with you guys. P.S- I do not consider myself a top notch writer as yet, but I can write good enough stuff. I have many repeat clients and have articles published on sites like AC, etc. This can be a success only if writers with little bit experience join in. If you haven’t written for good sites or clients then you may want to stay away from this group only for the time being until you get some experience. This is in interest of all writers who may join, just to make sure that we don’t lose regular clients due to bad quality articles. Hope this is understandable. No Trial and Error Please.
