I want cloud storage where I can place documents that I am working on and I look at them and work them no matter where I am then restore the updated file. I need less than 1G of storage so I was looking for something that was free. I was also wondering how secure is cloud storage is there a way that putting the file there would leave a back door to my computer open.

Google Drive

There are others but for a basic storage Drive is fine.

My recommendation would be to use Microsoft OneDrive.  I use it and it works great.  You could also install OneDrive app on your primary computer to synchronize files/folders with OneDrive.

I am writing a lot of papers and I want to be able to edit and add to the paper on the road then save it back to the Cloud. That way I work on the paper from anywhere at anytime. Which would work better Microsoft OneDrive or Google Cloud Storage?

Don't know about OneDrive, but in your scenario with Google I would be editing online (all changes are saved as they happen) and then just export to whatever format when I need it. Or download their app.

edit
OneDrive is pretty much the same!
