So I wasn't sure where it would be best to post something like this, so here we go. I have been searching for ways to make money as a writer outside of publishing my novel that I'm working on. I've looked into freelance writing and such, but I have no idea where to start, or if it's even worth it. I have grown tired of working the same retail 9-5 grind though, and would really like to at least do some work that involves my passion. As a community of writers, I figured that maybe some of you have either tried this or have looked into it. Is there any tips or tricks that you can name? What are your experiences with this kind of work? Is it worth it in the end? Any thoughts would be very appreciated. As I said, I have absolutely no clue where to start.
