I just got accepted @ Writer Access w/ a level 4 rating, but there are no assignments available. Is this normal for them? Are they okay to write for? Any problems?
Hi and congrats!
I also got accepted recently at level 4 - from what I've seen so far, available titles come and go very quickly. Either that, or they are on topics that I wouldn't write about. For instance, when I first got accepted at the end of January - there were about two dozen titles all about different pieces of sportswear (bike shorts, sports tops, etc.) - I couldn't quite figure out how on earth you could come up with the minimum 350 words (I think that was it) writing about a topic like that!
I have my WA dashboard bookmarked on my toolbar, so I just check in periodically a few times a day to see if there are any titles. I've been lucky, I guess, because I've written five so far. Four of them have been approved - the fifth is pending. The first four were all under $10 articles ($7.35-$8.35), for about 225 to 350 words; the fifth one was challenging, but interesting (about craniosacral massage), about 500 words - but will pay over $20 (hopefully, if it gets approved).
A writing friend of mine encouraged me to just keep picking up whatever titles I can, because that's what she did - and then the ideaLaunch company that owns WA gave her the opportunity to take on a regular client - and now she's getting $100+ for articles from that client!
