They will not stop until you say you give up, in the end you lost all your earnings from unreasonable revisions and even end up owing them money for negative balance on your earnings. February 27, at 3: To date, Nora has written romance novels — incredible! I am not one to, even in the writing of the very few forays into erotica and eroticism that I have attempted over the past seven years, write of sexuality overmuch, or at all, or gratuitously, but as this was integral, I saw no reason to withhold the sexual from the bounds of my prose. February 9, at 8: Hi Brittany, Glad you enjoyed the list!
Here are some of the best types of paid writing gigs, where to find them, and how much they pay. This article from Freelance Writing Jobs has paid writing opportunities! Freelance Writing Platforms. I have just graduated with a first but want a writing job from home part time to go alongside another full time job.
Are you good at proofreading, interviewing, and persuasive writing? Then becoming a professional resume writer may be the perfect freelance writing job for you. With revenue sharing sites, you contribute content to the site, and in return, you make a percentage of the advertising revenue generated from your content.
Each site does it a little differently; some offer base pay, while others are strictly based on how much traffic or how many clicks your content receives. Personally, I've never tried to make money this way, but here are some success tips from Carol Tice. Do you want to write the next Fifty Shades of Grey? Then submit your manuscript to one of the many romance publishers.
Who doesn't dream of traveling the world and getting paid to write about their adventures? While most travel gigs pay in free travel, food, lodging, and activities, there are a few outlets that will pay a small amount for your writing. Want to make more money as a freelance writer?

Please see our disclosure policy for further information. You can even count this website https: I love finding new niches to freelance for. Ultius has treated me well and I think they are almost always hiring https: Wow what a great list.
Thank you so much for this list! I drive almost an hour one way to go to work and I am looking for something I can do from home. This information will be a great start for me! I recently started a free writing leads site as a labor of love from one writer to another.
Feel free to share or check it out. Try looking on Indeed and FlexJobs, or this post may give you some ideas: Holy smokes this is one heck of a list, Holly! Thanks for putting it together for us. As retirement approaches, a lifelong desire to simply create, write, and explore avenues that have always proven themselves a true interest and passion is rapidly pulling me in to my most deepest desires of these areas.
Check out this post, Patty: This is a great website thank you! I have just graduated with a first but want a writing job from home part time to go alongside another full time job.

Any tips you could share would be immensely appreciated! I use a web programmer for all of my tech issues. Her name is Susan from http: Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment!
Hey i would love to write. Im pretty good with short stories usually fiction , what would you suggest? And can you suggest me VA in french website please? Also, Anna has a great list of translation jobs on her website: Hi Holly, My passions include being a life long runner and outdoor enthusiast, having owned a fairly large business in that niche. In addition, healthy pro-active nutrition, and politics are included. Do you have any recommendations as to what writing industries or companies to pursue?
Thank you very much! Hi Kathy, What about Live Strong? They are always hiring writers in a variety of categories. Also, check out your favorite brands and companies and research their blog posts.
Thank you so much for this blog post! I have never seen so much accurate and helpful information in one post! I have bookmarked this page and will be checking all of them out!
Thank you so very much! I am interested in a stay at home career in writing. I am a mother of two and I have been writing for many years. Nothing has been published. Do you want to set up a business? Or are you just looking for a little extra side cash?
This may seem a rather daft question, and it is, but: Now, can men, even incredibly heterosexual ones such as me lol , utilize and take advantage of these services as a means to market their writerly talents? Also, I have found that, for me personally, nonfiction writing is easier than fiction. However, I must strongly emphasize that this opinion is tempered by and only true of those times when one finds that they can be just as creative and imaginative and fluid and free and freewheeling in their nonfiction as they are in their fiction.
At least, it is for me, anyway. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity of using this forum as a means of getting a few things off my chest. However, I have one last query to advance: It is not erotica, as they call it. It is far above and beyond the trashy simplicity of erotica. Yet, as I said, the middle section of it is a sex scene, but one that I twist and manipulate every sort of human emotion out of, and that sex scene is not gratuitous, it is essential to the story and the plot.
I am not one to, even in the writing of the very few forays into erotica and eroticism that I have attempted over the past seven years, write of sexuality overmuch, or at all, or gratuitously, but as this was integral, I saw no reason to withhold the sexual from the bounds of my prose. Regardless, and for comedic effect a few very dirty vulgarities and smutty colloquialisms are used within the context of my tale, but still I wonder: Who would publish such an esoteric, unidentifiable, eclectic work?
I did not mean this thing to turn out to be some abridged story of my life, but as the next revelation that I am about to parenthetically reveal is somewhat imperative, I feel I must, if only as a means to create an understanding of me, my works and, most especially, my STYLE and TECHNIQUE as a writer, share the following bit of semi-personal data with you: Thank you bearing with me through this difficult digression….
Hi Lesley, Have you thought about curriculum writing or instructional design? It just depends on your area of expertise within the education field and what type of writing interests you. Hi, I am Rashid from India.
Just recently I had started blogging and I had published two based on my personal experience. Now I am willing to write a short fictional story. Can you suggest me any site where I could begin with? I also have had a lot of luck scoring paid contracts on freelancing websites like Upwork. Its been suggested to me because of my sense of humor and the way I look at life, especially mine!!
Blogging has been suggested but boy I feel lost and not so sure. Hi Paula, This post will give you a great place to start: I just stumbled on this informative gift from your stable by luck today. I like to earn from writing and online typing. Blogging is my favorite. You also need to have the good aptitude for customer service, so you can keep your clients happy.
Thanks for the informative post. Have you ever heard anything about them? If not, could you please look into this? Most legit sites have a page for customers and another for writers. There are a ton of awesome ideas here that I am eager to explore! I am currently working in a full time office job and would like to move from this lifestyle that allows me to write remotely on a more flexible schedule.
I have just submitted an essay to a contest about my experiences as a person with a disability. Gina Horkey has had tremendous success as a freelance writer and virtual assistant and she gives some great advice in this interview: This article by Katie McDonald has some excellent information on identifying strong freelance leads: Oh, and this article has some advice from four successful freelancers Carol Tice, Kristi Hines, Mary Jaksch, and Heather Robson on how to make more money with your writing: I have around 7 years of experience in IT currently a stay at home mom with two naughty boys..

Thank you so much. She too has a great list of paid opportunities: I had been writing on agony aunts column I enjoy helping other people. Love to follow my dream and do this for a job.

I am a homemaker and enjoy writing picture book stories, I have been looking for some freelance work and your article has been a blessing.
I will be checking at the sites you recommend, thanks again and take care. I would like to recommend my site 20four7va. So many interesting information, thanks. I also would like to recommend another source paperwritingonline. Hi Donna and others, The online writing lab at Purdue University has resources on the Chicago Manual of Style and the APA manual, as well as many articles related to English grammar usage that are user-friendly! Just type owl purdue university in your fave search engine and it should appear as a result.
I got a fairly good rating but not tops. Glad to have joined this particular thread and sooo thankful for the supportive content on here. Smiles to all, David. And hopefully a movie. It is called Zombie Revelations and has the old with a real touch of reality. I hope it can save some writers from going through the penny-a-word phase too many of us went through at one point!
I would add staying away from Yahoo! Good for you for approaching businesses directly! Thanks so much Kelly for taking the time to research and put together this list. It will get some good use here! Your skills and time are worth far more, and there ARE clients out there who will recognize and honor that.
Hold out for the good ones. I am so glad to run across fellow writers who value what they do and will stand up and say so. I tried ODesk and was not only appalled by the pay rates, but by the attitude of many clients. Well now, I posted a response that I cannot quote in polite company. So, thank you, your voice is much appreciated. One client said that he already had words. When I looked at what he wrote, it was on a sixth-grade level.
No research, statistics, compelling copy, SEO keywords, etc. So I had to start from scratch. I ended up acting like a tutor. Another client loved my work but kept disappearing. I asked for her website address, information about her company, etc. She let another week go by then disappeared again. I could go on and on.
I think that clients who use the content mills do believe that they can get stellar writing for peanuts.
I believe these incidents are blessings in disguise. I follow top-notch bloggers and copywriters and hone my skills continually. It is up to the freelancer to determine his standards and ultimately his worth. Hello Denita and others, I am thankful for this site, thread and continued posts including yours. At present I am an IC with Textbroker International, and try to look at most the jobs as blessings in disguise. Generally, I am a better conversationalist since starting this in late September, agree with you about developing writing skills, and have kind of found my subject niche as it were.
The big picture tells me I have it pretty good, given local opportunities and employment services for those of us who have a handicapability are inadequate in my place of residence. I hope your experience is dynamically different, but you sound quite capable and willing to improve where need be which says a lot favorably concerning what you bring to the proverbial table.
All the best to you Denita, enjoyed the chance to talk shop! Avoid sites like Researchwritingcenter. I think the better question is, what kind of writing do YOU want to do? What topics interest you? What style are you most comfortable writing in? Freelance writing is a huge industry, and you could be everything from a lifestyle blogger to a marketing copy writer. You need to determine what niche fits your skills and interests best; that will make it much easier for you to locate specific, nitty-gritty advice.
I am based out of India. I would like to write short stories. Could anyone guide me as how I should go about it. Please recommend sites where I should register myself.
I have registered myself in Freelancer. You can find them here: This article was quite helpful and the comments were too. I am just about to finish my English MA and I am broke as joke, living at my parents, and finding writing work online is my priority for the time being. Best of luck to everyone trying to survive out there! Thank you for this post. I just recently got into freelance writing and I feel so stupid already. I feel so cheated. Should I even complete the job?
Is it possible that the work she is doing for oDesk would at least provide a portfolio for her future use? I am brand new to the writing game. Love your words of encouragement to stay true to writing and get properly paid for your talent.
I love writing and have been caught up in content mills since I decided to write online about a month ago. I must admit the pennies I have received for my time, talent and dedication has been great to encourage me to seek something better. Are there any books or articles you recommend for beginners looking to earn a living writing online? The Write Life has actually put together a great list of resources to check out.
You can find it here: This article was an actual eye opener. Once again a big thank you for now I know what to expect and whom to deny. Thank you for the tips. I am handicapped and a fairly new mom at 41 to our 9 month old first and only son. Can anyone give me additional tips on the best way I could start a blog aside from wordpress or blogger please? First of all, congrats on your new baby! Second of all, my thoughts are with you and all your friends and loved ones — are you located in the Philippines yourself?
Third, The Write Life has put together a great list of resources you can check out. First off, congrats on your 1st son! Sounds like you come central Visayas too like me, am from Bohol Phils.
Yolanda Haiyan and the quake that hit our country — and the economic woes they brought are really challenges we need to hurdle. You see, I am more comfortable in writing articles than blogs. Also, writing websites that work like a vendo machines like Xoobiz, in , but now seems closed where writers can draw writing jobs from a queue — will also help, as we need not waste time in pitching for jobs.
Thank you for the great tips. I also get money writing for Bubblews and I I also write for sendmeglobal where they only give award to a writer each month. I was able to win it once. You have opened my eyes to other relevant targets.
There is soooo much info out there and this article has saved me from contentmills, not to mention wasted hours-thanks very, very much!! I guess you your words of wisdom are meant for US-based writers, knowing how much it costs to live there, this makes sense … well, kinda. If you were writing for a while before delving into the freelance world, i.
However, taking those low-paying gigs is what you really need if you got no clue what your niche is, and want to get experience.
Since I write for my own amusement and because Jennifer Oh dear Jennifer who gave me my first writing gig! At least for the sake of getting good at your craft before pitching to high-paying clients. Speaking of High-paying clients, I stumbled upon your post as I was looking for them, but all I could find is advice, and advice only.
It just takes time to sort through and separate the wheat from the chaff! I vehemently disagree with you here. Content mills horribly abuse writers and make it difficult for people who have spent years in this field to get a fair wage due to the expectation that companies can pay less to get more.
All around bad news and not recommended for anyone who wants an actual career in writing. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Alicia. To each their own opinion — some people, like Talal said, enjoy using sites like oDesk because it works for their needs and goals.
The pay is sustainable and you are able to begin your career well. Being a young, I started on Elance some weeks ago while at the same time trying oDesk. What is your advice for me? I think Elance is good for building some portfolio and acquiring experience, but naturally I want to move on to something bigger and better.
Hi Matteo, thanks for your comment! We actually have a post coming up on what to look out for when using outsourcing sites like Elance and oDesk. Keep an eye out for that in the next few weeks! Usually to make a change in life its quite scary but your post is so straight forward and well written that it makes anyone feel ready to take on the world! Thanks for this post and some of the other ones as well about freelance writing. Thanks for the kind words, Grace! I hope TWL can help motivate and support you in your career change.
