Don’t Quit on your Freelance Writing Career

Starting a career as a freelance writer is scary for many reasons. One of the most common is fear that your career will not take off soon enough. This is especially true among writers who leave a comfortable day job to chase their dream. While fear is natural, quitting shouldn’t be. In other words, don’t give up on your freelance writing career until you give it your all. And even then you may need to continue to push in order to reach your goals.

It is easier to give up than to work hard day in and day out. I promise you, the most difficult part of becoming a freelance writer is the first two months. Once you settle in and land even one client, you will feel much better about the direction of your career. As I have said many times before, I earned $52 my first month as a freelance writer. Did I think about quitting? I was afraid that I may have made a bad decision, but I never gave up even though it would have been easy to do so.

You have to give your freelance writing career a chance to develop. It takes time to learn the industry, to make contacts, and to land clients. For me, it took three months to really get a grasp on my career and the direction that I wanted to take. Even now I am still learning a lot and working on new ways to increase my income and better myself. If I would have given up after the first month I would not be writing this blog, or earning a decent living as a freelance writer.

Time after time I hear from freelance writers who thank me for assisting them but have decided to move onto another career. The shame of this is that many of them are giving up after a couple of months.

If you are going to chase a career as a freelance writer you need to be patient. Over time your career will develop if you stick in there and work hard.
