Have a passion for writing?
I began writing several years back. I'd always been writing constantly since I was a young child, mostly writing for free and doing projects just for the enjoyment of doing them. I did learn, however that I actually could make money with it and began seeking out avenues where I could establish myself as a professional writer. As a general rule, writers do not become rich (there are exceptions to this!), but can earn and survive on the work they do. It is not a get-rich-quick scheme by any means; you do have to work at this to become a successful freelance writer.
I have written a series of articles for beginning writers who are serious about getting started on their way to a profitable freelance writing career. I will be frequently adding new ones, so check back often.
