Writers Need to Diversify to Make Money

I came across a blog post on Rachelle Gardner's blog today - it was a guest post by Chuck Sambuchino, the author of How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack , Formatting & Submitting Your Manuscript and 2010 Guide to Literary Agents advising writers to embark on a variety of writing in order to keep the wolf from the door.

This is sound advise and although fiction writers would like nothing more than to be able to concentrate on the characters in their stories, the reality is that we need to write in other genres, like non-fiction in order to supplement our income. I have numerous blogs and web sites that I write for and I'm writing articles for on travel. The point is, if you love writing, you should try to make a living from writing - no matter what type of writing it is.

Take a look at the post and please tell me what you think and do you write other stuff in order to make money?
