So You Want to Be a Freelance Writer

Writing for a living requires working at writing every day. There will be an investment of time, energy and focus. But if you are willing to make the investment then you will be able to grow your writing career to your desired success.

Beginning the Journey to a Writing Career

“I would love to do what you do.”

People often respond to my telling them I am a writer or author with this statement. Some of them are even serious about a desire to write. I have learned to dig a little further before I do any amount of encouraging for them to begin growing a freelance writing career.

Most people have no idea what I do. Some envision me sitting by a peaceful creek writing with a feather pen in my notepad. Others see a furry of interviews and book signings with adoring fans. Some just imagine I sit around and do nothing all day. I have yet to experience any of those events on a basis often enough to consider it part of my routine.

I am a writer – so I do spend my day writing – but my career as a writer is different from those of my other writer friends. We each are on a journey that starts with writing by that moves along a path unique to our needs and our situation.

JOIN THE JOURNEY

Keep writing, no matter what direction your journey may take, and you will find that you too have become a writer!

About Us

The Rise of Peculiar Productions

“How do you do it?”

The number one question that people asked us at events was how we were pursing the path that we were currently walking.

“We are just doing what we believe we are supposed to be doing.”

“But how?”

That is the trick after all. Many of us want to have a different life. Many of us feel we are not where we should be or even where we are designed to be. The issue is that we have no idea how to get there – especially if we are striving to survive where we are.

Called to Be Peculiar

“We are called to be a peculiar people.” The Pastor led the class through the Scripture and this one idea stuck out for us.

“If we are called to be then why are we working so hard to be normal?”

The more we dug down into the idea, the stronger the vision began to grow. Each person is designed to live outside of the normal and the ordinary. Each person had been placed into this moment in time for that particular purpose. Each purpose has been given unique gifts, abilities, and talents that will drive them to fulfill that purpose.

Each person must decide to follow that path of purpose.

All Together Now

We met with some friends that were looking to pursue their uniqueness. They had skills that we needed. We had abilities that they needed. “What if we work together?”

We discovered that when we worked together we could create new opportunities for each other that might otherwise have been missed.

It became a cooperative effort for pursuing dreams – and cooperation creates support, encouragement and motivation for each individual goal.

The Mission of Peculiar Productions

– to encourage others to discover their uniqueness and to begin developing a plan to pursue that unique place.
– to provide the tools to help grow and nourish the ideas and desires.

We want to work with you to uncover your uniqueness. Are you ready to experience a life beyond normal?

At Peculiar Productions, we know the struggle. We have been THROUGH the struggle. We are a group of writers, editors, graphic designers, and encouragers that have walked the path strewn with words.

Through our experiences, we have determined that nobody should face it alone.

We are here to guide you in this process.
We are here to encourage you as you pour out the art of words.
We are here to help you with the craft of an end product (a.k.a. publish your professional book).

This world is a stormy place – yes, a dark and stormy place. We are here to be a safe haven in the storm and a launching point for your independent writing career.
