Will Write For…

It’s a struggle out there. No question about it.

For fellow Questers, it’s probably worse. After all, here we are working hard on our writing. Yet, we haven’t really been able to make any money or sell books. Still, we love writing, and there’s nothing else we’d rather be doing.

But until your book gains some traction, or you have a full-time writing gig, the concept of getting paid for what you write is probably quite far-fetched.

Well, not necessarily.

There are still a number of different ways in which writers can get money for their product. True, you’re probably not going to get to quit the day job, but it’s a little extra in these tough times. Plus, you’ll gain more writing experience, which you can’t put a price tag on.

  1. The Local Newspaper – Believe it or not, you can likely pick up a few writing assignments with your neighborhood newspaper. While it can pay as little as $25, a byline can definitely get your name out there.
  2. Textbroker ( – This site has assignments that are based on a rating system, 1 star paying the least and 4 star the most, in a number of different categories.While the assignments aren’t very long (200-700 words, typically), these can add up quickly.
  3. Helium ( – Competition for articles is fierce, but with 350-word articles paying at least $24, it may be worth your time.
  4. Examiner ( – If you pick a category and they accept, you’ll have your own blog on their system set up. Pay is based on popularity, so, theoretically, the more you write, the more people will notice.

No matter the case, if you feel you want some compensation for something you do anyway, there’s plenty out there for you!
