Any tips for beginning writers? I'd like to start doing some on the side but I don't know where to begin.

@acdw 1. You must write. 2. You must finish what you write. 3. You must place it on the market. 4. You must leave it on the market until it sells.

Beyond that, what is your market? Who are you writing for, as client or subject or ideology, and as your audience? What's your specific niche? What skills or experience do you have that nobody else does, that you can leverage?

@WanderingBeekeeper oh jeez, I don't know. I just want to make some money writing some copy for somebody. I guess I need to think about your questions!

@acdw for example, can you write a tabletop role-playing adventure? I'm in need of people who can deliver completed manuscripts, too many have tried and failed.

@WanderingBeekeeper I've just begun my first ever DnD campaign, so I'm not sure what all you'd need. If you want to DM (ha!) me for my email address we can discuss your needs further or I can talk to my DM to see what kinds of writing it'd entail. I have written some fantasy type stuff.
