10 Things Freelance Writers Have to Know

Being a freelance writer is not easy but freelance writing is beneficial even if you are not going to continue doing freelance writing jobs in the future. There are some main things that all freelance writers learn from enjoying freelance writing opportunities irrespective of the period they take up the profession of a freelance writer. Most of this stuff is useful, some is not – see for yourself.
1. Choosing the easy way is not always the best way. If you are feeling sick and tired of writing jobs, you are likely to have chosen the wrong profession. Better give up freelance writing if it brings nothing except for money for you.
2. Not all freelance writers have the equal talent. Before starting the career of freelance writing, remember that you will always be better than some other freelance writers but there always be those who are more successful and talented than you. You might be an expert in one discipline but know almost nothing about other things.
3. May be you are not a freelance writer who will succeed. It’s not your fault if you wouldn’t become a famous freelance writer.
4. You need friends who are good freelance writers. Reading the blogs, working from home, writing for a living but not making friends with other freelance writers is the wrong way to do. Freelance writing friends may give you huge and interesting ideas for your freelance writing jobs and can even become awesome motivators.
5. Making mistakes doesn’t mean that you are breaking your career.
6. Fear is not a feature of freelance writers. You should never be afraid of doing something new and writing something that you have never experienced before. If you have fear, you will never know what you are capable of and how far your freelance writing career could have gone. Take risks that are a real challenge for you!
7. Find out what you want your clients to know about you. On your portfolio, resume and cover letter, you’d better focus on your experience in the spheres you have dealt with and abilities that you are proud of.
8. Don’t be afraid of expressing your thought and voice.
9. Have a dream and take steps to let it come true. Make your career –do your best.
10. There are no guarantees and secrets. Rely on your writing skills and abilities, on your motivation and time and you will become a successful freelance writer.
