Do You Really Have to Write Every Single Day?

write every day or write when you can - which is better

Pick a writer’s resource, any resource. Someone (or several someones) will tell you to write every single day. Set a time. Never miss it. If you do, you might as well quit now. Fuck. That. Shit. In the time I’ve spent with and around sex bloggers and writers, I know how easily we beat ourselves…

Writing About All the Sex: Smut vs. Sex Education

smut writing and sex education

Can you write smut and sex education pieces? I’ll give away the answer to the question…yes, you can. Okay, we’re done here, right? Problem solved! Well, not quite. Choosing to write only erotic fiction or some form of non-fiction is one thing. Believing you can’t (or shouldn’t) is quite another. As someone who routinely does both,…

Why You Need Multiple Streams of Income

post on why smutlancers need multiple streams of income

  Relying on a single source of income comes in a variety of forms –  affiliate sales for a single company, offering sponsored posts, working with a single client. The danger, when you only have one way to make money is that when (rarely if) that income dries up, you’re stuck. You have no other…
