Check out the writing jobs under “Types of Home Jobs.” There’s a lot of great no experience required companies for people starting out. My personal favorite is Text Broker, you write articles, press releases, etc. for other people/companies. It pays decent for just starting out and you can get some experience for your resume.
Of course if you want a place to link back to and don’t like the companies on the list you can always write for wahtips. Just email email@example.com pretty much being able to show a client that your work and that you are published somewhere can really help.
