So, you’ve tried your hand at writing a novel, but it just didn’t work out for a number of reasons. You’d like to write something, but your head is spinning.
Have you ever thought of writing in a different format?
Here is a list I made. Perhaps you’ll find a new possibility:
- Short stories (Guideposts is always looking for inspirational stories.)
- Tweets (yes, you can write and sell your original Tweets. They can be humorous, quotes, inspirational, etc.)
- Newspaper articles
- Magazine articles
- Greeting cards
- Directions for products
- Directions for games (such as board games)
- Jokes (yes, there is a big market for you jokesters!)
- Educational textbooks
- Wants Ads/ For Sale Ads
- Screenplays (Movie scripts)
- Television Scripts
- Menus (believe it or not)
- “How-To” Manuals
- Television Commercials
- Sky Mall Magazine Product Ads (The daughter of a friend of mine wrote for this airplane magazine for several years).
