If your good at putting words onto paper why not try your hand at writing articles for residual income. I just joined these 2 sites and so far it's a lot of fun. associatedcontent.com and also helium.com Helium has a marketplace where you can submit articles for publishers to review, if your article is selected you can earn anywhere form $20 - $200 not to mention the exposure you will get. They also have on going weekly writing contests and they are not as hard as you might think to win! Just some ideas for those of you struggling to find what works for you.
