Writing has always been a passion of mine. Ever since I could remember I have loved to write.
There's just something about putting words on paper (or into a word processor) that gives me immense
satisfaction. I guess it's because I have an opinion and I just can't hold back in sharing it. When
I write I find myself liberated and able to express myself in a way that I have never been able to
do when I open my mouth and no one can argue with me - at least not immediately!
Writing has been a profession since the first scratches were made in stone before anyone can
remember and in modern times it has been a flexible, rewarding and lucrative career for the
successful. Every city in the world has book shops and libraries of one form or another and since
our first days of school we are given books to read and review and agonise over.
authors make a lot of money from writing (JK Rowling is richer than the Queen), but getting
published has not always been easy via the convention method. Submitting endless unsolicited
manuscripts unsuccessfully is the norm if you are not connected. But that need not be your fate.
Millions of people are now surfing the internet through Google every second of every day
looking for information. The written word has never been so accessible so quickly and the amount of
information that is becoming available on the internet is growing every day. You probably knew that
(you are here reading this after all) but did you know that you can earn a good living writing on
Seriously, you could be earning over $100,000 a year working only a few
hours a day if you are writing online. Online businesses are hungry for fresh written content in the
form of articles, reviews, blog content and even sales copy and it is dead easy to get involved. In
fact there are almost 100 websites that are totally dedicated to providing an avenue for freelance
writers to find writing assignmets, some even operating as an online auction where you tender for
the work that prospective employers need completed.
Thanks to the internet I am now a
successful writer and enjoy indulging my passion every day without the hassle of trying to please
printed publishers and agents. I write what I want when I want and have a never ending list of
webmasters and businesses publishing my content to millions of readers over the internet.
You definitely have to give it a try.
