If you want to work remotely, visit WAHM.com. It's for moms, obviously, but there is a ton of information on working from home, finding writing jobs where you can work from home, etc. If you want to work as a writer, you can always work at a content mill to make ends meet for awhile. I also second whoever said be ready to relocate. This is obviously going to be more difficult if you have children or a relationship, but if not, don't be scared to try living somewhere new. I think a lot of people get nervous at the idea of moving somewhere, but if you limit yourself to jobs only in your exact area, you're going to have a harder time finding work.
