It’s easy to worry about the competition that we all have in the writing world. But if we sit around and worry, we won’t get that next writing job. I have found that it’s a good strategy to look around my world and find out what’s close by that I can do. Like local papers or even Internet content writing-which doesn’t pay well, but has given me a lot of good practice. The trick is not to get too caught up in these content mills, but make them work for your own purpose, which is practice, practice, practice.
