Writing Gigs: Copy writing, Copy editing and Resume writing

Writing online articles for a few pennies here and there isn't the only way to make or sweat over money. There are some lucrative writing gigs such as copy writing, copy editing and resume writing. You probably never looked at any of these as writing, but they can be quite successful. You may have to come in on the ground floor if you don't have experience. However, English majors should have some experience. Offer to volunteer for some copy writing or editing jobs. Do a friend's resume and see if you like it. I did a resume for a friend who eventually got the job he was going for. Now I'm looking at resume writing in a whole new light. It's nothing I would have considered previously, but here I am, face to face with it.
Of course, don't give up your day job until these take off. Keep writing those articles (I know, I owe a bunch) and keep writing those legal briefs for those of us who need to do that too. These are just some suggestions that some of the seminars/webinars gave me so I thought I would pass them along. There are copy writing jobs, copy editing jobs, and resume jobs that you can apply for on the Internet. Let me know if you are looking for anything specific. In the meantime, there are places listed on this blog for websites for online jobs. If you need help, let me know and I can list some more job links. Happy writing. PS - copy writing is supposed to be lucrative. If you enjoy it, it could be your ticket to staying home.

Due soon - personalities of those in charge. Don't even get me started.

Writing Gigs: Free Newsletters

The author of the Wealthy Freelancer has a site which sends free newsletters to your email address. I just received my first one. It's short but informative. Check out http://www.thewealthyfreelancer.com/. There are other goodies besides a free newsletter. This is an informative blog about writing, projects, how to deal with rejection, etc. Do not feel that you have to buy the book unless you want to. The first three chapters are, however, available for downloading if you want to check it out. This is a worthwhile link to add to your favorites list.
