Again, I ask the same question of myself.
If I get a job, the pay is worth the job, but the jobs are few and far between despite my growing reputation on @Upwork.
The big problem is that despite my large portfolio and reputation. I'm in contest with Asians who are willing to work for virtually nothing - even if the quality of writing is terrible - I know because I've been approached by them and found it hard understanding their writing.
After years of contact with Asians, another aspect of their writing is they do not know how to ask for things, they don't ask - they issue orders and are very rude.
The bottom line reads, is it worth going on, when I am only getting at best one job a month?
It is true that the one job pays more than I make with my writing in a year, but I still feel unfulfilled as a writer because these jobs so nothing to market my name as a writer.
