Sometimes I actually get paid to write things, like...
over at TheHighCalling.org, that features a discussion of a beautiful stone wall at Storm King Art Center.
I figure if I put the proceeds of my unpaid writing together with my paid writing, and divide by some ungodly number of hours, I make about one tenth of a cent an hour.
Life would be pretty rocky if I had to live on that. So, I'm consoling myself with thoughts about the fringe benefits.
Can you make a living as a freelance writer? Read L.L.'s Riess, Winner, Crouch and Crosby Just Say No
Mark's Free Writing (which is to say he's not getting paid to offer this wonderful set of poems. Just see if you can find the story in them.)
