AboutFreelanceWriting.com by Anne WaymanHi, I’m Anne Wayman and I’ve been freelance writing for over thirty years. (It doesn’t seem that long!)

Although it took awhile, I’ve been fully self-supporting through my freelance writing for many of those years now.

I’m pleased to also report my writing income increases nicely each year, and I’m getting residual income in place as well.

How I got there, how I’m staying there and how I’m increasing my income is what I want to share with you at here.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Solid information on finding and landing freelance writing jobs.
  • Original articles by me and guests aimed at the how to write and how to make more money freelance writing.
  • My willingness to answer your questions as best I can based on my own experience – in both text and video format.
  • Reviews of products I use – I’ll tell you about the ones that make your life easier and help you make more money with your writing. I usually won’t review products I don’t use or try and decide not to use again. I may do the occasional negative review if whatever I’m reviewing is either horrid or a rip-off.
  • eBooks written by me and aimed at helping you maximize your income.

You can reach me by email at anne@aboutfreelancewriting.com. I run a stiff spam filter so if you don’t get a reply, feel free to email me again.

There are additional ways to reach me on my contact page.

hi Anne

i’v been wanting to start freelancing for a while but never got the courage to go ahead with it. Your site really inspired me to take the step forward. Thanks a lot. I’ll be starting to freelance soon, been searching around for opportunities. Wil probably try on fiverr and earnfromskill.com first. [earnfromskill is giving away $5 as part of an offer so it’s a win-win even if i don’t make it 🙂 ]…will probably be coming back to you for advice soon…keep going with the great work…all the best..tc

Samantha, strongly suggest you limit your $5 writing to two or three and use those as links for you website credits.

Hi Anne, I just read your article on 7 Ways to Sell Corporate Writing by Email. All good information. I think it’s worth mentioning, however, that, unless the person sending the email has identified him- or herself upfront, their email is likely going to end up in the junk or spam email folder of their intended recipient, and might never be seen. I’ve been doing freelance writing/editing/proofing for 3 years and have come across this speed bump on more than one occasion.

Good point, so something like “Hello, I’m Anne Wayman…” and then go on with the msgs?

Your ad for tax advice on your page has two glaring spelling errors–not good for a writing site. 🙂

Andrew, are you talking about the newsletter? should be at the bottom.


Christine Rice December 31, 2011 at 10:11 pm

Hi Anne,
I sent you two emails yesterday. Did you get them, or should I try sending them again?


annew January 4, 2012 at 12:33 pm

I’ve got ’em and they are on the list… super busy


Christine Rice January 5, 2012 at 12:44 am

Okay. Thanks for replying to my comment 🙂


Christine Rice January 5, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Hi there Anna
I am dabbling in writing and have been for a number of years now. I am currently busy with 2 books which i want to get published once i get it proofed and everything that goes with writing a book.
I am enrolling in a freelance writing online writing course this summer and also want to dabble in poetry. Do i have too much on my plate?
