The Old Soldier does some online freelance writing. I get paid a penny a word. If I can get an assignment every day I can easily make around $40 a month; but it’s difficult to get an assignment every day because the assignments are given on a first come first serve basis.
This morning I caught an assignment about Tayshana Murphy, an 18-year-old girl’s basketball player who was shot dead by an unknown gunman. The shooting took place early Sunday morning in the hallway of the housing project she lived at in Harlem. She was a senior in highschool and several colleges were interested in recruiting her. An ESPN outlet ranked her the number 16 point guard in the nation. She was shot once in the head.
The police have no suspects.
