A writer can be more than the words they spin.
Ever thought of drawing something to go with your writing? Or taking a photograph to go with your article? Or even backwards, creating words to go with your drawings, like a comic? Scanning pictures, drawings or photographs into your journal or blog?
Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. As much as we love them, words are typography on paper but pictures bring a new element into your words, light and shadow and instant gratification. One look and half or all of the story can be told. The words become more information, details, the rest of the story.
Publishers looking for photographs or drawings will pay for them. They could be paying you.
