Like in most careers, it’s hard to talk about numbers in the freelance writing world. I know there are 6 figure writers (even freelance writers) out there. One day I intend to be one, but that won’t happen until my children are out of the house,and I don’t mind that at all.
I was delighted, though, when a writer at About.com offered to let me post ALL their numbers. .. ALL- as in, writing hours worked, freelance sources of income, total freelance writing income, total business expenses and etc. It’s a telling tale, and I hope that other freelancers learn and use it.
