Show Me The Money
“Sick and tired of seeing writers settle for $2 or ‘exposure’ gigs because they felt they had no other choice,” Deborah Ng started Freelance Writing Jobs to help work-at-home moms find “decent” paying gigs. Since she started her blog in 2005, she’s helped hundreds of writers do just that. Not only does Deborah compile lists of paying gigs, she also blogs about issues writers face, such as writing on spec. A discussion section lets readers add tips, get advice from other writers in the trenches or vent a little, like her Fun with Pet Peeves post. Check Freelance Writing Jobs  and you just might find the perfect gig.

She’s One Hot Mama
As an author, a freelance writer and a mom, Allison Winn Scotch is in demand. Yet she still finds time to share her writing wisdom in her blog Ask Allison. She calls it “the place to post questions and find answers on all of your too-afraid-to-ask concerns, hesitancies, and worries about breaking into the publishing field.” Between releasing and promoting her first book, The Department of the Lost and Found, and working on her second novel, Time of My Life, Allison has been fielding lots of questions about fiction writing. Her archives also contain excellent posts about breaking into the magazine business – check out this gem: Editors Sound Off. Her secret to finding time to do it all and do it well? Read A Method to the Madness for some excellent ideas.
