A Weekend of Making Money

How much money can one make in a weekend when they join everything and do everything they can to get there?

I have my one gig – a ghostwriting job that will pay $200 by next week as long as I finish it this weekend. So that’s the starting amount.

In addition, I’m going to be signing up, researching, and finding every single way to make money either immediately or over time. The goal is to do this without spending anything. Spending money to make money would be DUMB.

I will update this post each time I make money or join something in which I will make money at a future date.

I can revisit it in a month to see if the things I do this weekend starting on May 12th pays off in a week. Follow along if you dare. 🙂

So first I joined Clixsense which will allow me to make .04 a day. This adds up to $14.60 for the year. SO on May 12th 2018 I’ll have $14.60. There are other ways to make money though. A giveaway, tasks, and surveys so we’ll see. So far I have made .06 🙂

I can’t remember to Clix every day.

Next, I joined UserTesting, I have to take the test later.

I will update the following things I joined here shortly.

When You Hate Your Novel

I’m not sure how many people actually finish writing their novel and hate it. I truly feel like the more time I spend with my book the more I hate it. The words start to look like they don’t make sense, the dialogue sucks, and the plot does too. I just have to let it go and I talked about this in our last Podcast. I simply have to let my manuscript go to my editor and just stop stressing.

If I didn’t I’d have to live in my closet and obsess over it.

When I finished Next to Me I hated it. Maybe it’s because I’m pregnant and have soul-crushing minutes where I hate everything and then I’m good. Maybe it’s because it was garbage. No, the real reason is because I spent too much time with it. I was too close to it. Stephen King’s idea that you should put your manuscript in a drawer and not think about it for two weeks is a good plan. I know that it was just haunt me though, so I’ve never been able to do that.

Okay it’s not a miscarriage of justice. I’ve just been binge watching Brooklyn 99 and loving it. I needed a little break after finishing that novel. During that break I plotted a new novel I didn’t even know I was going to write on top of Spacetress! It’s just going to be a busy time.

I also applied for two more ghostwriting jobs because why not? I also started a group multi-author paranormal novella project where we all write in the same world. So as usual my little pennies-to-thousands brain is turning and giving myself more crap to do!

So once I finish season 3 of Brooklyn 99 I’ll be ready to dive back into working. Yes, I did watch the whole series in the span of 3 days, but I told you I needed a break!

So what have we learned from this post?

  1. I love gifs
  2. It’s okay to hate your manuscript
  3. Putting it away so you can look at it with fresh eyes is a good idea for everyone.
  4. Brooklyn 99 is the best show on Hulu right now.

Thank you for reading!
