Here's what I love about writing ebooks: you write them once, and they keep on selling forever.
I know several writers who've taken to the Kindle platform like the proverbial ducks to water. One writer friend turns out a new Kindle ebook every month, like clockwork. The last time we spoke, she had 11 ebooks selling -- and her income is rising month by month.
Another writer friend mixes writing her own ebooks, with writing ebooks for others. Currently she's been commissioned to write a biography, and a family history, for the same client. She's finding it huge fun, and she's making more money than she's ever made.
The benefit of writing and selling ebooks is that once written, they can keep on selling forever. Would you trade eight hours for an income stream?
Whatever your current income from your writing, you can make more, much more. But first you need to know what's possible, and you need to be aware that the easy advertised writing "opportunities" are quicksand.
In my new Writing For The Web: Make Money Today program, I discuss what pays the most in Web writing, and what pays YOU the most. I explain why, if you're charging just $40 an hour, you're not making enough to survive.
Discover why writing for the Web is the best thing that's ever happened to me... and to you.

Writing jobs are everywhere. If you want to make $5 for writing 500 words, you can get these jobs all day long. No searching necessary. These gigs are plentiful because the Web's built on words. If you can string a few words together, you can make money.
I've got nothing against these jobs. Sadly however, there are two major challenges with these kinds of gigs: you'll burn out, and they're a dead end...
You can write less than you're writing now, and get paid much more. Get the dream writing jobs you want, at top rates.
