What It Means To Work As A Freelance Writer


If you are looking to become a freelance writer, you have to know that this kind of work isn’t for everyone. You will sometimes have to work long hours and weekends depending on the job that you are doing. This means less time with your family and working on your own stuff. This isn’t what all freelance writers go through but ones that are starting out will probably end up doing this. This is because you are probably taking gigs that pay less than other jobs and it takes time to find a good paying job right away. This means in the time that you aren’t writing, you are looking for other work to offset or even replace the job that you already have.

What Does It Mean To Be A Freelance Writer

  • - If you are a beginner, don’t expect to find the highest paying job right off the bat. You are going to work on odd jobs and make money here and there until you find a good paying job.

  • - Freelance means that you don’t always have permanent employment, you might be one of the lucky few that lands a client that can give you steady work for a long time or maybe even work for a newspaper or magazine that needs articles every week. That is why you should have some money saved up in case of emergencies, when you start to work as a freelance writer.

  • - Working as a freelance writer means that you are going to be writing all the time and if you don’t like writing or are not very good at it then you shouldn’t choose this as your career. You will write on various topic, while some maybe boring but others you will get excited to write about because you are learning something interesting and writing about it.

  • - Freelance writing has its ups and downs and it takes the right person to do it. You have to have the drive to meet deadlines and not slack off. You are your own boss and while that might sound like a good thing, some writers use it as a way to not get work done. If you can’t be responsible with your time and the time of your clients then you won’t last long doing this and you will also lose your clients because you can’t get your work done on time.
