WritersUA published their 2007 salary survey, finding that 73K the average. The survey breaks down the highest to lowest paying states. Click the links at the top of the WritersUA page to see how the survey is broken down. If you live in Northern California, Massachusetts, or South Carolina, you're in the top three states. Pennsylvania, Florida, and Missouri are at the bottom of the chart.
Thanks to Gordon Meyer for alerting me to the published survey. Gordon's blog, Usable Help, is one of the best around.
