So, let’s have a frank discussion on sales. Not to force every writer into a stereotype (I’m certainly not stereotypical), but most writers I know are not social creatures. Now, they may socialize on Twitter or Facebook. But, I know few writers who are out there getting in front of strangers and trying to find work as a writer. Which is why it’s so hard for writers to find work. Especially paying work. I mean, like great paying work ($5 on ODesk for a short article is not good money—think $500 for a one-page success story). What you need as a writer is to have a steady income you can live off of–to learn how to sell.
