Those are the ones I search into..but they ask like 5-10 articles a day..I can do 3-5 rewrites I guess..but not each day..and what if the kid falls sick?Or something comes up? That is what my concern is..

@angie: I really should do one like that but got no resources.
@itsangel: that is great! I guess staying persistent with elance helps. I just am troubled by the fact that most of the writing jobs are too huge. I am not sure I can dedicate all my time on 1 contract you know?Since I have only done 1 job, I still have to bid low and see what I can get...

Is anyone here doing the National November Writing Month project? This is my second year. I am still doing edits on last years book, but have sent queries on it returns have been positive. Anyone else?

Hi Debbie
I have been on Elance since May 2008, I did the same thing. I bid lower to earn my first few jobs, to get int he door. I always check the buyers award ration before I buy, if it is less then 50 percent preferably higher, I won't bid on his job.
I just won a long term position that had 50 proposals by sending the buyer a note asking him if he needed anything else from me, etc. this showed I was interested in the job.
He called me, and interviewed me and I won the proposals. When there are a lot of bids, keeping your name out front is the name of the game.

Has anyone put together a freelance resume? I found a couple of examples online, but I think I need a simpler version. Anyone willing to share?

There are three options on Bright Hub, self publish (you're in some type of payment pool-not sure how payment works yet), Hubfolio (you publish you own material and are paid on views), editorial channels ($10 plus residuals) - I like it, but I've just started and I write for the business channels.
