Anyone wishing to become a writer these days can do so with the aid of a computer and a compelling story. And if your words are good enough for people to pay you for them, that’s a whole new world out there to explore. Many grandparents, senior citizens and elders who have collected a lifetime’s worth of words and stories could find the creative challenge of freelance writing very attractive. The flexibility it allows for, including working from home and keeping to your own schedules (as long as you meet your client’s deadlines, that is!), makes for a very lucrative revenue-generating scheme.
