Freelance Income

"The typical freelance journalist [...] earns an annual gross income between $40,000 and $49,999," according to infomation posted on the American Society of Journalists and Authors Web site at

How does this compare to the typical freelance fiction writer?

And, is it even possible to find a typical freelance fiction writer who does not also earn income from some other source (teaching, speaking, editing, writing non-fiction, etc.)?

I'd think that anybody who captures their income could divide it into categories. Time spent earning that money, however, might be more difficult to figure.
