I apologize if this is a tedious question but …
My wife and I may be moving overseas soon and I have been considering looking for work that I can do remotely, possibly writing. My background is that I have an MA in music and am a professional jazz musician. I also worked in high-tech for many years and studied engineering. I’m well read and write English well. I’ve also sidelined privately as a tutor for years (academics, SAT, GRE, etc.) and have done some editing and proofreading.
So, I was wondering if there is some kind of writing that I can do. When I scan many of the freelance writing sites, I see many writing, editing, etc. jobs but often offering scandalously low compensation. Of course, there are a lot of people around the world willing to do it cheaply.
I was wondering about grant writing. I see requests for grant writing come up from time to time and realize that being more specialized work, it might not attract as many low bidders. I see advertisements for seminars for grant writers but I wonder if it’s a waste of money. Are there any grant writers here? Is this a reasonable plan? Can I become a successful grant writer taking a class and working remotely, from overseas?
I’m not looking to get rich. I just want something that I can do part-time and make a respectable wage to supplement my income. What can I do remotely from overseas? I don't mind hard work and won't mind investing some time and money building this, I just don't want to go down the wrong path and end up in a scam or dead-end.
Any advice would be appreciated.
