Support Your Writing Through Writing
If you’re truly serious about being published, you’re going to have to put some time, energy, and yes, even money into that endeavor. Trust me, we’d all like to think we have enough talent to make it, but talent will only get you so far in this industry.
The publishing biz is built on networking. And while it’s possible to create valuable contacts online, there’s still no substitute for an in-person meeting. That means you’re going to have to get to some writing conferences and those aren’t cheap.

Use your skills and your need to improve your craft to kill several birds with one stone, and begin writing articles for pay.
