49. Freelance Writing

Have you always dreamed of becoming a writer? You’re not alone. It is a very competetive field, but it’s not impossible to get your foot in the door, especially since there are so many different writing genres to choose from. Most websites will want to see examples of your past work before they hire you. If you have never been published before, you will want to start your own blog and possibly begin submitting your work to writing contests in order to prove your skills.

The amount of money a freelance writer makes per year dramatically changes depending on the genre and number of clients, so it can range anywhere from $20,000 to $100,000 a year.
