ESL is way overcrowded now. The only place where there is a surplus of jobs for the time being is China and teaching there is really just a case of finding a place to stick yourself for a while. It is unlikely it will lead to any serious money or anything worthwhile. Writing would be good if you could establish a niche for yourself where you are supplying a product that canâ€™t be supplied by all the wogs and bimbos.
It is strange that. The regimes seem to be willing to actually destroy entire lucrative industries such as programming and science so as not to have to employ bright, creative people.
Uh, have a unique service people can recognize you by. Have a brand that sells a particular thing. It doesn't have to be radically different. For example, you have over 300 different independent game developers in the world. Each one has its own branding. However, only a couple actually get the fame and fortune, because they have a specific style and develop their brand past that one terrible game indies ALWAYS make.
If you are going there to learn Chinese and pursue your writing career online while living in a less toxic social environment then that might be a good idea. Otherwise you should consider where the move is taking you. This thread is interesting:
