The Smutlancer: Writing about sex and getting paid to do it
We’re not tax, accounting, bookkeeping, or money experts AT ALL, but all of those things have evolved as we’ve grown as smutlancers. So we recorded ourselves talking about it, while trying to throw in a few helpful tips.
Not every smutlancer pitches their ideas to other websites, but many do. If you’re a writer, it’s likely that you’ve done it or considered it. In this episode, I’m speaking specifically about writing non-fiction. Sites that publish fiction have slightly different expectations and requirements (although some of these tips are universal).
It didn’t feel right coming back from a brief break on the podcast and NOT discussing the state of the world, at least from the perspective of how we’re handling things. Pardon the ramble, but we wanted to talk about these things so we can firmly move on from the topic (while also acknowledging the reality of how pandemics impact our smutlancer lives) in future episodes.
