About Freelance Writing’s Five Buck Forum

Shh... About Writing Squared, nee' The Five Buck Forum, is returning to its roots!

Five Buck Writer's ForumAre you ready to earn more? Be more productive? Get answers to all your questions? Feel supported in your writing career?

Do you wish you could talk with professional writers like yourself? Or those who represent what you want to become?

Of course you do!
If you're like most freelance writers, (if you're like me) when you started to make a living writing you didn't really 'get' that you were in business for yourself, nor did you realize the solitude you need to write well would sometimes drive you up a wall!

Which means you have questions, like these:

  • What do I need for a home office?
  • Who can I get to tell me if this query is on track?writers forum And if it isn’t, how to fix it?
  • My best client has turned into a slow payer! Should I really try to charge a late fee?
  • When should I make the break to full-time freelance writing?How can Ido it?
  • I’ve been asked to write two blog posts a week – how much do I charge for that?
  • What’s been your experience with the XZZY service? Do they do a good job or is there something I should know?
  • Gee, where can I hang out with another writer or two? Just for a bit? And be understood as a real writer?
  • Should I have a blog? Why?
  • What’s the difference, really, between a web site and a blog?
  • How do I build residual or passive income for my retirement?

Questions about writing, questions about technology, questions about business, question about fees, questions about marketing… the list goes on. And can include questions or just shares about your pet if you'd like. Oeditor catr anything else! After all, we each have lives as well as our writing business. 

Of course, you could do a Google search about your question, and it might help you find the answer. Often you end up with too much information (TMI) – and it’s hard to figure out what applies to you in your situation. Our forum is ideal for sorting out issues like these. In fact you'd probably be surprised at everything we've addressed - and some of it keeps coming up because things and technology change.

Writing, even in a crowded coffee shop is usually a solitary activity.
That can create a sense of isolation.
 What if you could conjure a few good writers to talk with?
As an About Writing Squared Forum member you can drop in anytime. Maybe someone 
else will be there, maybe not. Catch up and respond to topics that interest you, or start a 
new one. Brag about your latest gig, or the new puppy that just arrived in your home. 
Answer someone's question and leave one of your own.

Topics range from industry gossip and gigs through the joys and agonies of setting up 
your own writing business. 

Always and forever the focus is writing - from idea to completion it's writing, writing and 
more writing. 

That's exactly why the About Writing Squared
Forum was created!

I tried forums in the past and found a lot of negative vibes. Because I know and respect Anne Wayman. I gave About Writing Squared forum a shot.

What a breath of fresh air. The community is friendly, supportive, and extremely generous with sharing their knowledge. We have writers of every level from the beginner to seasoned pros and from all parts of the world.

About Writing Squared has become a daily habit I embrace. I know if I need a solution to a problem or a boost from hanging out with fellow writers who understand, About Writing Squared is where I go.

It's a great place that represents all that is good about the online world. ~ Cathy Miller who blogs at Simply Stated Business
