This is the question all writers complain about. Nobody ever asks lawyers and doctors how much they make. But people always feel free to ask writers how much they got paid for that last article or book. After fifty years as a selling writer, I've finally realized it's possible to give them a reasonably polite answer.

For magazine fiction and magazine articles-- see the market listings posted in WRITER'S MARKET, Locus, Science Fiction Chronicle, and the Bulletin of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.

For freelance "business writing" such as reports, newsletters, brochures, and press releases-- I'm currently charging $75.00/hour.
