Just a quick followup on yesterday’s post (“Those beautiful Research Features articles? The authors get £50.“). If you could write two such articles a day, five days a week, you would earn around £26,000 ($35,000) per year:
£50/article x 2 articles/day x 5 days/week x 52 weeks/year = £26,000/year.
At the end of a year, you’d have written around half a million words, a bit more than The Lord of the Rings.
