Make money writing as a freelance writer if you need more money to help supplement your writing budget. By having your writing pay for your writing expenses, you don't have to take away from your personal budget to fund your fiction writing business.
As with most writers, you write on your free time and pay for everything out of your own pocket. And with the cost of publishing and marketing fiction, this isn't always done easily.
A freelance writer can make money several different ways, most of which are considered services which product pure profit. This means it won't cost you anything (except your time of course) to do the writing and the income you make from that writing is 100 percent more than you have to pay to produce it.
All your freelance writing does is cost you time, but for the amount of effort you are putting into a project, it so outweighs the payout result. And it's not something you have to do full time unless you want to.
Writing for others is a way to keep your creativity going while you are in between novels or trying to make extra money for other writing expenses. You are essentially a writing business and people hire you to do a job for them.
