I enjoy writing very much & it sure would be lovely if you get paid for doing what you like to do! As for writing for profit, I've tried blogging but haven't really earned much (& I do need to get back to it!) & mylot is also a joy to write & earn =)...

YES! I make extra money by writing: Helpful hints, household ideas, jokes, children's stories, true stories, short stories, poems etc. etc., to magazines and they all have paid me for my writings! (Readers Digest) pays the best, but always remember, the things you write, and SELL, are no longer YOURS! When you cash the check, you sold all world rights to that company who sent you the check, so which ever articule you sold, you can no longer re-use it in any other magazine in the future! That idea, poem, story, helpful hint, or articule that you sold no longer belongs to you!

Hmm, I never sign away all my rights, I always retain copyright of what I create even if I allow the company first world rights to it. I few places I have sold to request exclusivity, but I ask them for more money for that!

I enjoy writing, but I mainly write poems. I don't write commercially. My poems are a reflection of my thoughts and deepest sentiments, and hence are very personal. So, i just write when something triggers a thought and I write for myself

Yes, I have written 3 non fiction articles that have been published for profit. All my writing concerns mathematical algorithms for understanding the stock market. I have an idea for a science fiction book, but it would be so much work I am having a hard time getting started on it. You can get an idea about my writing at my website. http://fp1.centurytel.net/polydimensional/

sounds very complicated! Sci fi is hard to sell I understand, so its worth taking time over it
