eBook (ePub): $5.00
In general, communications is considered a glamor industry because of the creativity involved so competition is fierce, even for people with advanced degrees. I've known several people with... More > journalism degrees who couldn't find a job so they ended up as high school teachers or something like that. It's all about your ability with words. Newscasts have to be written everyday. They have to have fresh, new, exciting, crisp stories. It takes a certain pragmatic skill to write good news copy quickly. If you can get a story, summarize it down into your own words very quickly, edit news footage to go with it to create a quick story on the nightly newscast, you will easily be in demand because these skills are rather rare.

eBook (ePub): $4.00
Writing to earn a living is hard work if you plan on selling your work to publishers who will resell it. If you plan to do it all yourself, hustle for writing contracts for functional work in the... More > business world, self-publish and market your own work, I feel you have a better chance than people writing novels and nonfiction books hoping to sell them to a big publisher. It's just too damn hard. The world already has way too many novels, nonfiction stories and even practical books in my opinion. Sure you get a few people who fluke out like the Harry Potter stories and a few authors like Stephen King and John Grisham but a lot of this is luck. They were lucky that somebody from a publishing house decided to hype them up as the fresh new flavor of the month and kept running with it all the way to the bank. Very little writing impresses me. I think it's almost all generic. I don't feel the Harry Potter stories are superior to other fantasy kids' stories< Less
