Although not every writing gig will pay (maybe not that blog you started about your pet rabbit), working writers can make a solid living: in 2006, the median annual earnings of salaried writers and authors was $48,640; for salaried editors, it was $46,990. Technical writers make out even better, with a median annual salary of $58,050. Even entry-level technical writers make a good wage: in 2006, their median annual salary was $40,400.
As for Stephen King? Well, he made $45 million in 2008 alone. But who’s mincing words?
