How to make money online?

I've heard of putting ads on your websites and i've done that, I have even signed up for inbox dollars, which helped me(it works). But how can teenagers make money online(legally). I live in SD, Cali. And you have to be 18+ to get a job w/o apermit and i dont go to a public school so they don't give those out. So what are some working ways, you might have tried that can make money?

You won't be making huge money online, not enough to feed a family, but I do some surveys just for fun in my spare time and I earn a little bit of money.
All the stuff I do online comes from this website

Donna asks…

Good places for teenagers to work/Interviews?

I know I already asked this, but I thought I'd do it at a time of day when more people would be online to answer. Sorry.
Hey, I'm 15, 16 at the end of the month, I was wondering if anyone around my age has any suggestions as to where to work. I desperately need a job this summer and have already applied at a few places, but need more ideas. I'm trying to stay away from fast food because of the late hours, and I want to keep the job into the school year. So any suggestions with experience to back it up would be great.
Also, I applied at a Vans store that will be opening soon, and I was wondering if anyone had any experience working for them, what the interview would be like, etc.
I applied at Ross too, but I read that they're pretty awful to work for, and interview with. If you have any experience with them please let me know about it.
Thank you so much, any advice is appreciated :)

dknol answers:

Try restaurants. (i started working at one 6 months before my 16th birthday and they paid me cash until i was 16 then i got a paycheck, however most of the money youd make there is tips) if you waitress, theres good money in that. I got close to $25 an hour in tips during the summer, it pays really well!
Try babysitting. You can do that at any age!
Tutor kids? Put a sign up at the elementary school or so and let people know?
Apply to work at stores, let them know that youre almost 16, so youd legally be able to work then

Thomas asks…

Seeking help from experince authors?

I'm looking for someone read something I'm working on, and that could critique it for me. I'm mainly looking for someone around at least 17 or older. Because mainly, i feel like they would have more life experience than a 15 yr old, which is how old i am now. Also someone told me to look for someone who is a adult to critique my work rather than a teenager. So if you are willing to read what i got, I would be very grateful. Please, don't hold back though. Just tell me what you think, and give any usefull advice. Also it not much, just the beginning. So there isn't much, but it's progress because i haven't wrote much lately and it is my first project since my last one which was like a couple of months ago. It' a short story suspense/thriller/sci-fi/ general fiction. So what do you think? And yes i know, i shouldn't post my work online, but still, what in this story is worth steeling???
also I've noticed the dialog is strained a bit, how can I improve on that?
Thanks in advance.
The cool wind caressed Rachel Dawns pale skin as she stood before the bronze dual-doors. As she waited, she studied the events prior to her arrival. At 6:45 AM PT, she arrived at the San Francisco Airport, where neatly dressed man was waiting for her. He looked to be in his fifties, with streaks of gray in his thinning hair, and fatigued blue eyes. He held up a sign that read ‘Welcome Rachel Dawns’. As she proceeded towards him with her luggage, he greeted her with a smile.
“Rachel Dawns I presume?”
“That’s what they call me.”
“Welcome, I’m Perry Carter; I’ll be taking you to your Uncle’s place.”
Perry led her to a small black van that was waiting for them out front. He placed her luggage in the back as she sat herself down in the leather passenger seat. Taking his place at the driver seat, he started the van up.
“All buckled up?” He asked.
“Yeah.”
“Then off we go.”
Steven Dawns, Rachel’s uncle, lived in the outskirts a couple of miles away from Los Angeles, in a small hidden town called Orion Village. The trip took three hours, which left room for small talk.
“So Rachel, your uncle never told me much about you.”
“Well he isn’t much of talker.”
“Not much of one indeed.”
“So how do you know him?”
“Oh, I knew him for quite a long time. We met when we were at Orion High. It was my first year there, just transferred from Devin High, the only private school in the area. Anyways, your uncle came up to me during lunch and asked my name. And it just went on from there. Oh, before I forget, how old are you again?”
“So Rachel, your uncle never told me much about you.”
“Well he isn’t much of talker.”
“Not much of one indeed.”
“So how do you know him?”
“Oh, I knew him for quite a long time. We met when we were at Orion High. It was my first year there, just transferred from Devin High, the only private school in the area. Anyways, your uncle came up to me during lunch and asked my name. And it just went on from there. Oh, before I forget, how old are you again?”
“Seventeen”
“Seventeen? Damn, I thought you were only fourteen, or at least that is what your uncle said.”
“Yeah, I Haven’t seen him in a while.”
Around 10:12 AM PT, they arrived at house. After helping her with her luggage, he bid her farewell and drove off. Twenty minutes later, that is still where she stood. He must be still sleeping she thought. Therefore, she knocked again with a little more force. A couple of minutes later a tall man with brown hair stood before her. With a big grin, he let her inside and took her luggage inside.
“Sorry about that Rachel, I was upstairs.”
“Oh it okay, don’t worry about it.”
“You want anything to drink?”
She thought about it for a sec, but said no. He led her up to her room. It was a relatively medium sized room, with a big rectangular window opposite to the door. After placing her luggage down, he invited her into the living room.

Hey, I read it, and have many comments. I hope they're helpful.

~As she waited, she studied the events prior to her arrival. ~

This opening would make more sense if you had kept the events as a sort of time line but instead you add dialogue and really there's only one previous event – her drive there. I'd use a different transition. Maybe something like “Earlier that morning she had arrived in San Francisco….etc”

To help the dialogue seem more natural you should describe what people are doing as they talk. It's not necessary after EVERY sentence, but it should be done often to avoid having the dialogue seem like a screenplay. For instance:
“All buckled up?” He asked, turning to look at her.
“Yeah.” Rachel replied, clicking her seatbelt into place.
“Then off we go.”

The following dialogue seems odd… I think you need to add more description between it as to how Rachel knows him and why she's headed to her uncle's house.

~ “So Rachel, your uncle never told me much about you.”
“Well he isn’t much of talker.”
“Not much of one indeed.”
“So how do you know him?”
“Oh, I knew him for quite a long time. We met when we were at Orion High. It was my first year there, just transferred from Devin High, the only private school in the area. Anyways, your uncle came up to me during lunch and asked my name. And it just went on from there. Oh, before I forget, how old are you again?”
“Seventeen”
“Seventeen? Damn, I thought you were only fourteen, or at least that is what your uncle said.”
“Yeah, I Haven’t seen him in a while.” ~

It's very odd for him to say “before I forget, how old are you?” – why would that be something he shouldn't forget to ask? Especially if her uncle had already told him she was 14. It's strange.
Try to make your dialogue sound like a conversation you could imagine two people actually having.
Also make sure you transition better to the arrival at the house. Insert something like “the conversation lapsed into silence as they drove on” or “they spent the rest of the ride chatting about little things like the San Francisco weather and what Rachel planned to do in the future”

~Around 10:12 AM PT, they arrived at house. After helping her with her luggage, he bid her farewell and drove off. Twenty minutes later, that is still where she stood. He must be still sleeping she thought. Therefore, she knocked again with a little more force. A couple of minutes later a tall man with brown hair stood before her. With a big grin, he let her inside and took her luggage inside.~

This also is very unnatural. 20 minutes is a VERY long time to stand outside waiting. You make it sound as if she's only knocked once in all that time. I'd advise either having her knock many times and begin wondering what she should do – or reduce the time to something more reasonable like 5-10 minutes.

~ “Sorry about that Rachel, I was upstairs.”
“Oh it okay, don’t worry about it.”
“You want anything to drink?”
She thought about it for a sec, but said no. He led her up to her room. It was a relatively medium sized room, with a big rectangular window opposite to the door. After placing her luggage down, he invited her into the living room. ~

Also very unnatural. You need to add description in here like: “Oh its okay don't worry about it.” she said as he stepped aside and let her in, helping her with her bags. He ran a hand through his hair seeming distracted. “You want anything to drink before I show you your room?”
Etc.
Without description between the dialogue it seems like it's all happening right away and leaves the reader with many questions.

I guess if I had to sum up all my observations into one piece of advice I'd say – more description. Remember you might have the whole thing playing out smoothly in your head, but the reader only knows what you tell them.

Joseph asks…

I need help from teenagers?

okay so I'm a teenager myself but I have to clear a few things
1. I'm not normal
2. you could define me as an old lady because I think and act like one
3. I have no idea what teenagers want
regarding that information, I need your help in writing a romance novel. I have this novel that I'm currently working at online it's full of action,mystery,suspense,historical fiction,comedy, fantasy and horror. And it's very popular with the teens but now my fans want me to put in some romance with my main female character and the main male character. The problem is…I have no idea on how to write a romance novel…I've tried asking my friends and I know a little bit of what sort of book teens want but I don't know how to turn it into a story. I don't want my story to be too original and plain I want it to be unique and different but I'm afraid that putting romance into it will ruin my story but at the same time I need my readers to like my story so it's kinda complicated for a novice like me. Anyway my story is about a young girl living back in 1888 she is living as a man since women back then didn't get anywhere except the kitchens (due to sexism). She was trained as a royal knight working for her queen but soon when the kingdom is at war by some unknown enemy she then suddenly finds a book which takes her away to another world (random I know) and in that world there is monsters and dark magic.That world is run by an evil queen (who is actually her twin sister) who is causing destruction and the main male character is her Knight. She finds a group of friends and together they fight monsters and work together solving mysteries but her friends don't now she is actually a girl so there is a little comedy in it. And so on. My main female character and the main male character are enemies but my fans want them to be lovers which I strongly don't want happening because then all the action and horror will turn into some lovey dovey crap! so any ideas on how to make it into a romance without it affecting too much of the plot? and please keep it simple yet unique…if that makes sense..I'd appreciate your help!

dknol answers:

If your fans like the plot and they're somewhat supportive, why are you trying to change the flow for them? This is YOUR story. You can make whatever happen, and if you feel romance isn't suitable, so be it. I'm a teenager and while I do love a good
romantic novel, I would much rather read action and horror by itself than have it mixed with romance. Horror and romance to me are complete opposites. I had a similar dilemma, but my fans wanted me to make my main female character pregnant, which had never crossed my mind. It wasn't my preferance, and therefore I left it out. What you could do however is you could make them hate each other all through the book and then at the very end have them get into a massive fight and then he grabs her and kisses her and she kisses him back. And it could end there, that would be great.
