I update this list from time to time. Let me know if there is a dead link that needs to be banished. I’m trying to keep an updated list of writing resources for not only my readers, but myself. Hopefully, this will one day become the goto list for freelancers. Please remember that your time is worth money, and don’t settle for five bucks on a project that will take longer than half an hour. If you’re serious about freelancing, then you should be getting paid for the value you bring to others. Figure up a minimum rate, and stick to it. After you land a few jobs and gain confidence, then raise your rate. 40-50 hours per week should bring you a livable wage if you are serious about being a professional freelancer.
