I realize that sometimes you need to make money while you’re ramping up your book sales. While you’re in the process of getting your book launched, you may need to have money to pay bills.
Within your area, there will be a good number of small business owners where you may be able to find work as a writer. The number of opportunities for a writer is very high and this is a great field to work in.
To look just be on the realm of grabbing a job as a writer, you could also look at doing some freelance writing. If you’re not happy with the amount of money that you could make within the writing field, you could look at supplementing this on the side by either of these two following websites: www.elance.com or Fiverr.com. On Elance, you are able to bid on projects that are listed as well as set up a profile to showcase your best work. Fiverr is a great place to start out and build your experience. You can create search criteria so that jobs that meet what you want can be e-mailed to you. This is a great way to supplement your income.
Writing jobs are out there for the taking. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, writing jobs will grow in line with the general economy over the next decade. This means that you will see probably about average growth for the industry but you could see a great deal more growth if you focus on Internet writing. This is a very flexible industry in which you have potentially a greater chance at dictating your terms and conditions and how you would like to work. Do not underestimate also the opportunity to work as a freelancer because you could command higher rates and this would increase the amount of flexibility you would have.
