If you’re a beginning freelance writer, or don’t know many other freelancers, you may wonder how anyone manages to earn enough to eat and pay the rent by writing or performing a mix of writing-related tasks. Yet, smart full-time freelancer writers and editors annually gross $35,000 and upâ€”sometimes up into the $150,000-200,000 range. These top-earning freelancers rarely have names known to the general public. (Celebrity writers earn fees far beyond the rates cited in this survey.) But, year after year, they sustain themselves and their families on a freelance income, while maintaining control of their hours and their lives. Such freelancers take writing and editing seriouslyâ€”it’s their business.
The PDF contains current 2005/ 2006 freelance pay rates for writers (by survey), and from a quick look, they’re right on target.
My gift to you: Holiday Season Writer’s Gift Pack – Santa’s sleigh is packed with gifts for you, dear writer. I wish you and yours a joyous holiday, and your best writing year ever in 2007.
