Don’t be scared of the Learning Curve

When I was first starting out as a freelance writer I distinctly remember how intimidated I was by all of the information available online, in books, etc. The learning curve for getting started as a freelance writer appeared quite massive, and this was a very scary situation. While there is a lot of information out there, I want you to know that the learning curve is not nearly as scary as it looks. In other words, if you want to become a freelance writer do not let this hold you back.

Moving at your own pace is essential. Even though there is a lot to learn and many others who know more than you, there is no good reason to rush forward and get ahead of yourself. The learning curve is only scary if you bite off more than you can chew. Sure, every freelance writer wants to move from one stage to the next as quickly as possible. This means more success and profits in a shorter period of time. But if you rush forward and do not take care of the tasks at hand you will find yourself backtracking and trying to pick up the details and knowledge that you missed the first time around.

Every time I get involved with a new venture I look at the learning curve and wonder how I am ever going to catch up to the industry. At first it seems like progress is so far away, but soon enough everything begins to fall into place. As long as you avoid paralysis by analysis you will be just fine.

Aspiring freelance writers find out soon enough that there is a lot to learn. Take your career one step at a time so that the details never overwhelm you.
