"As a freelance writer I can't really compare my salary with those of others because my client list is different than other writers. It's too dissimilar to compare salaries even though the job duties may be similar. I get paid for my results, not for a job description. What that means is that I get paid for a completed job and not for being available to do a job like others may."
