Consistency Pays Off
Even If It’s Only Cents
My December goals do not have a monetary value, although I know being a writer in the MPP, includes earnings.
It is interesting, however, to use the stats to compare results from one month to the next, especially when I am working towards consistency in my writing.
I am not worried about the actual number in the earnings column (although someday I hope to be), and even though it is like counting my change jar, I see a jump in that number. This tells me one thing: Consistent writing pays off.
Today on December 11, I am just shy of my total November earnings when I was posting twice a week, on average.
Slow and steady, right?
It is difficult for poets to earn the same amount of money as big bloggers and article machines. That is ok (for now). I am working on my writing and reading so many amazing works on this platform. The more I write on Medium, the more I read your words.
This platform has proven to be an accountability partner for me. As soon as I see some amazing writing here, I try to be brave and get my stuff out there too.
So keep writing, writers! Write more, write consistently!
