I may have been a little naive (though I prefer to say optimistic) about the amount of hard work required to start making money or building an audience from writing alongside all the other writing I'm currently doing.
I thought I could publish 2 Medium articles a week - that very quickly dried up - I've published 3 since making an account.
I thought I could land a copywriting client reasonably quickly - instead, it's taken a lot of hard work to get 3 cold emails sent out (with a load of work I've done for free) and I've had no response so far.
When I began I had a target of 100 Medium articles and 25 Copywriting cold emails sent. I could still do that, I just need to really really push to make it happen.
