Who Am I?
Hi! I’m Allison – the creator of Paid to Write 101. I was bit by the freelance bug in early 2006, and after some soul-searching, I decided that getting a “real job” just wasn’t for me.
When I started, the online writing world looked very different, but I’ve learned to adapt, grow as a writer, and face all the challenges this industry has thrown my way. This is my corner of the Internet where I’ll be sharing my best advice to help you do the same as the writing world continues to change.
Today, I’m still freelancing from the beach with my fiance Jeffrey, and when someone asks “what do you do,” I get to tell them, “I’m living the dream.” I work with my toes in the sand and take frequent breaks to spoil my cat. I’m living proof that you can get paid to write!
In my free time, I also volunteer for an exotic animal rescue here in the Hampton Roads area, and I participate in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) every year, an annual crazy attempt to write a 50K-word novel during the month of November.
