For us character writers (think: character actors), we have plenty of jobs, but we're not well known and we'll never get the best tables at a restaurant. If you write for money as little as I do (I tithe 90% of my writing), you need to supplement your income.
For me, it was natural to turn to a place where I can combine writing with my other love, information. I am an information freak. There are a couple of options if you want to freelance with ChaCha (I'm hereby referring you-use email Teraisa@gmail.com).
I can work as much or as little as I like; it's up to me how much money I make. One thing I love about being a generalist/specialist is that you already know you'll earn a dime or so for each question, but there are times all month long where bonuses are given away, depending upon several things, maybe how many questions you answer, and maybe you simply are given a surprise bonus.
You won't get rich answering questions (unless you're the owner), but you'll be keeping your researching skills sharp and honing your writing craft (cutting words down to only what's necessary) and still get paid. If you're looking for a few extra dollars each month, want to work your own hours, have a computer and Internet (or have access to both), and are willing to try, ChaCha may be the place you've been looking for. Earn money freelancing while you write that next big novel. Use me as a referral, be on my team:
