Writing Gigs

Writing obviously lends itself well to telecommuting. It matters not where you write, just that you write. It’s not enough for a writer to show up for work. A writer must write. And writing can be done from virtually anywhere, right!

Writing gigs are fairly easy to find online, but the truth is that most don’t pay very well. That’s fine if you really need a starting point and are working to build your resume, but it’s not too enticing to write for Helium or Today.com if you’ve got a considerable amount of experience already. If you already have a strong writing background and resume, you should be looking for jobs like these…
