Back to the regular schedule. It’s Wednesday, so time for another lesson. This week, we’re looking at saving up money.

I know, I’m at it again. But this money thing is important. I’m going backwards, instead of forward like I should be. Too much stuff to buy…

We all know how tempting sales are, don’t we? We all know good deals when we see it. You think, “I have to get that right NOW. That’s a bargain.”

Don’t lie. I do it, too.

But let’s look at the facts. Do you really need it right at this moment, even though you don’t have a lot of money? Or can you wait for a while and save up money until you have enough money for whatever else you’re saving up for, even if it’s not on sale anymore?

I’m learning to step back… Slowly, but surely.

There’s a business that I’ve mentioned before: AWAI, or American Writers & Artists Inc. It has courses to learn how to become a copywriter. They’re expensive, but they’re good.

They currently have a major sale going on for one of the courses I really want to take… Nope. Not going to do it. I can’t. Look away…

So, what does all of this have to do with writing? Well, you may be saving up money for an editor. I know I am. Save up money for that editor, or whatever part of writing you’re saving up for. Look away from the sales. 🙂
