I’m happy to share my roadmap for this journey with you. My first assumption is that you do not have to make a living as a travel writer. My payment is the wonderful trips I receive that I could not afford otherwise. Travel writing is like show biz in that 10 percent of the people in the business are making 90 percent of the money. The top 10 percent in the travel writing arena work very hard at placing articles and getting more than one article out of each trip in order to pay their bills. They usually have a couple of books under their belt to make ends meet. I get incredible trips, the pleasure of sharing the experience with others, and making my hosts happy.
