The vast majority of writers are self-employed or freelance. Permanent paid job is more typical of a technical author, scholarly or columnist roles. Nevertheless, a determined writer can create a niche. Typical responsibilities include creating, typing, printing, editing and proofreading different types of texts. Also, a writer has to liaise with many other professionals in their field such as photographers, artists, publishers and marketing professionals who can distribute written text.
The major benefits of the writer's job are that the writer can work from home and make his or her decisions, i.e. there is no supervisor who argues and explains not only what you have to write, but also how you have to do it. There are no bosses, no alarm clocks and no schedules made for you by others.
There are no silly deadlines, and nobody tells you how much to work. You decide how much you work, part-time, full-time or overtime. You can earn $6000 or more each month, and you get out of the rat race. You make decisions and have the freedom of working for yourself, and you can work from any place in the world.
You can live the laptop lifestyle and make a full-time salary by producing written content and providing it to your partners that want them so urgently for their pamphlets, newspapers, handbooks, magazines, brochures, journals, websites, blogs, marketing materials, and much, much more.
