The get out of DMS by 2012 thread

Postby The Batman » Wed Dec 29, 2010 1:16 pm

Most of us here have talked about leaving DMS behind. Well, why not take some time to formulate a concrete plan of how you hope to accomplish that in 2011? Post your plans here. Here is my rough plan:

1) I will apply to on private gig every day.
2) I will write an article for one of my own sites at least every day.
3) I will write at least one revenue share article for a different mill every day.

What about all of you?

My Plan:

1.Write for these fuckwads Monday and Tuesday.
2. Wednesday through Friday is when I apply for private clients and/or work for other content mills.

I am about two seconds from leaving this assholes for good. You know it is bad when you have nightmares about getting rewrites and rejections. I don't need this fucking stress anymore. They can kiss my juicy ass. :lol:

I will get a "real" hourly job, PT or FT, to cover some or all of my living expenses.
I will restrict my DMS production to no more than 5 articles per day -- preferably during work hours at my "real" job.
I will set aside at least 10% of my income (in addition to my 401K) as a security blanket.
I will write or transcribe at least 500 words per day of original, creative content.
I will invest in a good voice transcription program.
I will invest in a 2011 Writer's Market.
I will submit finished work to at least one publication per week.
I will read more fiction in my genre.
Why? Because FUCK YOU, that's why.

This is a great thread.

I will write two columns a week for my own site and promote them.

I will work on my second novel two hours each night.

I will write 5 articles, 6 days a week for DMS and continue to devote 2 days to my other big client (I have a quota there).

I will submit 5 revenue articles a week.

I will set aside time to work on my own sites every week. I get behind.

I just installed Dragon Naturally Speaking - got version 10 cheap - and I think it will really help. It seems pretty intuitive.

I also love this thread.

My plans include, in no particular order:

1.) Begin querying my-trade-related publications. (this also allows me to start doing my-trade-related research again, which I rather enjoy.)

2.) Write at least one article per day for my own blog and for at least one revenue-sharing site.

3.) Create and start building my-trade-related online resource for students, etc.

4.) Learn HTML. Also, re-establish contact with college friend who is graphic designer. Use skills/contacts to expand services to finished products, not just copy.

5.) Market services in the my-trade-related stuff I do in the aforementioned trade publications, both by writing for them and by placing ads in them. (I'd have gotten to this sooner except I just started freelance writing full-time a few months ago....)

6.) Only do DMS stuff if:
-all other stuff for the day is done AND
-I have not met my daily revenue quota. (otherwise, write additional own stuff and/or revenue share stuff.)
