Pay Rates for Freelance Writers

I’ve been searching around for writing work lately. In doing so I’ve noticed a trend: Nobody wants to pay more than a penny per word. This has me wondering…

Am I looking in the wrong place? I really don’t think so because I scour a variety of boards and sites.

Aren’t people willing to pay more for a good writer? Unfortunately, I’m starting to believe this is true.

Where can I make more of a “living” wage? I don’t need a lot but I do need more than a penny per word. I’m not sure this is even possible though.

What are you experiencing out there as a writer? Are you making a good amount of money? Or simply only able to command a penny per word? Any advice?
