Self-Publisher's Writing Tournament (Day 1): Write. Get Published. Start Making Money.

Today is Day #1 of Inkwell Editorial's ebook writing tournament; it's an easy, free way to finally commit to getting a book done. In the last tournament, we had 32 participants. Nine (9) of them completed books (a couple even finished writing two!); and four (4) got sales.

Profile Information

Who I am:
My name is Yuwanda Black and I'm a freelance writer, self-published author and web entrepreneur.

I've been a freelance writer since 1993; an indie writer/publisher since 2002 and an internet marketer since 2008.

TRAVELING FREELANCE WRITER

I'm American, but since 2013 have lived and worked from Jamaica (Negril).

THE THING I LOVE THE MOST ABOUT MY CAREER

The thing I love the most about being a writer is that it allows me to live and work where I please. As long as I have an internet connection, I'm good to go.

I've worked everywhere from a hotel room in Barcelona, Spain; to a cafe in Stockholm, Sweden; to a farm house in Cordoba, Argentina. As far as work, I feel like the luckiest girl alive most days.

THE THING I LOVE THE MOST ABOUT BEING A WRITER

In a phrase, "income stability." As long as I can write (ie, produce new products), I can make a living. How much I earn is entirely up to me. Thanks to places like Amazon and Barnes & Noble, you don't have to be famous to make a living as a writer.

RUNNING, RUNNING, RUNNING!

I'm also a marathon runner. I've completed almost a dozen marathons and am always training for the next one.

LIFE PHILOSOPHY

Just do it! (As a runner, of course Nike's philosophy fits who I am :-)).

LEARN MORE ABOUT ME

You can learn more about me at http://InkwellEditorial.com/about. Inkwell Editorial is my freelance writing website. It's been live since 1999 (for better or worse, especially design wise) and has hundreds of articles on how to start a successful freelance writing career.

You'll also find info on ebook writing/publishing, blogging, social media, SEO, article marketing and more.

I publish my fiction works via Inkwell Editorial Publishing, my indie publishing company (InkwellEditorialPublishing.com).

CONNECT WITH ME ON TWITTER

Connect with me on Twitter at Twitter.com/InkwellEditor. It's my preferred social media outlet for inquiries about freelancing.

For fiction writing, I'm on Twitter @AnInkwellPub.

Thanks for dropping by, and feel free to send me any questions you have about freelance writing, internet marketing and/or self-publishing.
