Want to make extra money? Try writing

Let’s face it, there are lots of reasons why anyone in Australia would like to earn a few extra dollars. It may be that you are saving up for the holiday of a lifetime, or you want to reduce your debts a little quicker than are doing so already. You may have long term plans to put your children through college, or short term plans to treat yourself to something obscenely expensive. So, can you make money writing in Australia?

Whatever your motives, it’s an attractive idea, but how to put it into practice? You could always ask for extra shifts at work. Alternatively, you could take on a second job – maybe working at a bar, or get an office cleaning gig. This may suit you down to the ground, but it means less time with your friends and family, and ultimately, exhaustion. Alternatively, if you have the skills, you could make money writing.

This has a lot of advantages. For a start, you can fit your writing around other aspects of your life. You can work from the comfort of your home, and you only need a computer and a reliable internet connection. If you can land a regular contract, your earnings potential increases as you gain familiarity with it and therefore write quicker. If English is your first language, and you have great spelling, grammar and punctuation, you’re all set. All that remains is to find an employer.
