A Dumb yet Common Freelance Writing Mistake

There are many potential freelance writing mistakes that can be made time after time. As you can imagine, avoiding these mistakes will give you a better chance of all around success. One dumb yet common mistake that I see often is when a writer forgets to market his services because he has a lot of work lined up. This may not sound like a big deal, but what happens when the project ends and there is no more work?

There is no denying that this can be a difficult situation to deal with. After all, this requires that you manage your time with a high degree of efficiency and success. In other words, you will have to complete all of the work that you have accepted while also finding time throughout the day to market your services. Can this be time consuming? It sure can. But unless you want to run into issues in the near future you need to be willing to put in the time to avoid this.

This is not to say that you should take on more work than you can handle. Often times, a freelance writer will become afraid of running out of work so they will collect as many jobs as they can find. While a lot of work is good, make sure that you limit yourself to what you can comfortably handle. If you don’t, you could find yourself working seven days per week which is not always fun. 

The good thing about this common freelance writing mistake is that it is easily avoidable. Now that you are aware of this issue, you can continue to market your services even when you have a solid flow of work. This will help to ensure that when one project ends, another is in line.
