What was the reason you decided to go freelance? I’m willing to bet good money one of the main reasons was so you could have more time to do the things you love, right?
For me, travel was a huge part of that decision. I love exploring new places, meeting new people, and trying new things, but I found the limited holiday my 9-5 gave me just didn’t give me enough opportunity to get out there and see the world.
Let’s face it, landing writing gigs is the number one thing that stresses us freelancers out. It doesn’t matter if we’ve been at it for seven years or seven days, getting clients is always the number one problem.
Without clients and gigs, we don’t have a business. It’s kinda essential, you see.
But in the early stages it can be really frustrating when you apply for literally thousands of jobs and only hear back from a few. And even then the answer’s usually a resounding “no”.
Maybe you’re someone who’s thinking about dipping their toes into freelance writing, or maybe you’re a seasoned pro who knows the ins and outs of the industry.
Whether you’re a beginner or have been writing for years, there will always be times when you worry about having enough work.
If you’re anything like me, Twitter takes up a lot of your time.
Whether you’re scrolling through a trending hashtag for a laugh or two or desperately stalking your favorite celebrity, it’s that kind of place where time seems to disappear.
