Though reading and writing are basic skills thought in our own homes and in our schools, the talent of effective composition and written material is not gifted to everyone. As many want to talk than write, many also prefer to write than talk. In any case, if you have the skills for writing, it is time to use them and make yourself rich!
To start with, you can jump on the technological bandwagon and make yourself a blog. It can be a personal blog but it would be great that it be one where you discuss a specific topic that you are knowledgeable about. Say, it could be about how to maintain a small home, how to hire a Maserati or any other luxury car, or even how to write better. Find your niche that could be your identity as well. How can you earn this way, you ask? Well, in your blog, you can be able to put paid advertisements and if you bring much online traffic, companies will want to sponsor you too.
You can try out to be a freelance worker. By day, you can perhaps, go for a job at a newspaper or magazine company. Many are in need of writers and if you believe that you fare well in informative reporting and/or entertainment interest, then this can work for you. Then, at night, if you are not too tired and you still have the energy and heart to function like the awesome writer that you are, there are online jobs you can apply for.
There are companies who have websites that are yet to have content. They look out for people who they can instruct on what to write. If you are open for such supervision and control, even on the Web, then take this step. Aside from turning your talent into a profit, this way you can also learn and pick up more knowledge on different topics since you do not have much choice on what you are to write about. Think about this as widening your scope.
Also, you can bank on your open and extensive imagination. You can create your own fictional stories and either send it out to publishers and publishing companies. Or again, there is a home for you on the Internet. There are portals where you can post your novel. Many have been successful in this particular endeavor as they were able to satisfy the tastes of the public; some started from having a popular story online then getting it published afterwards. On top of your writing skill, a deal of luck is quite needed though.
Fond of travel? Well, you can still have a career while you are on your trip! Be a travel writer. Companies who create travel books and magazines pay people to do budget itineraries and reviews on various places around the world. Isnt it fun? You get to travel, write and make a living as well!
The range that writing can bring you is indeed endless and how rich you will be doing this craft will be up to you.
