The Jobs That Actually Pay Writers A Livable Income

I learned a lot this year, and I want to share it with you would-be writers. If you’re dreaming of working at home, maybe you have kids like I do, this is probably among the best opportunities out there. You only need a desire to write stuff – if you’re someone who enjoys it, and many people do, you could be successful – and, you need to be dedicated to finding the right opportunities, which I’ve outlined for you below.

A Quick Word Of Advice:

Please keep in mind, how I determine success is a bit different. I have my husband’s income to supplement my own. He makes more than I do. I’m in school and have two daughters and two stepdaughters to look after. I already lack time, so it works for me that there isn’t always full-time work, vacations aren’t paid, and there’s no benefits (unless you can afford to set them up for yourself). I’m not going to be lame and share my yearly income, but I will say that it’s between $10,000 and $15,000 per year.

To some that’s not a lot, but for our family it has served us very well. If you’re like that, then click away because these articles tell you how to apply for the good jobs. I didn’t pick up these tips from some manual either. These are my personal experiences. I’ve been in this business for six years, and have successfully grown my business each and every year in both profits and renown, but I’m not some anomaly. I truly believe anyone with a passion for writing can do it.
