I am in the exact same position. I feel the need to scream on my profile: "Though I am new on Upwork, I'm not new to the work!" but am assuming that would be unprofessional (ha).
As suggested, I have submitted a few proposals, but the writers haven't even been online in over a week.
Do I just buy more connects? Do I wait? I'm grateful that this is my side gig. This would be devestating if this was my primary occupation.
Any thoughts, Gurus?

I can totally understand your plight. You won't believe I have written that (New to Upwork but experienced in the field) in a couple of my proposals. My profile also refers to it in a subtle way. I thought of adding it because I feel clients filter proposals only on the basis of the amount earned by the freelancer till now or basis the rating a freelancer has. If this is the usual case how will we fetch any work? a newcomer shall always remain a newcomer with this practice.
Let us hope the Gods controlling Upwork answer our prayers and we are blessed with more work. Ha Ha!
I am working on Upwork from last 1 year and every week I am getting 1-5 invitations but from last 10 days, I am not getting any invitations. What is the reason behind this?
