Easy Ways to Jump-start your Freelance Writing Career

Are you having a tough time getting your freelance writing career on the right path? Have you been working as a writer but now feel as if you are in a rut? If you answered yes to either one of these questions you will want to determine how you can jump-start your career. Believe it or not, there are a few quick steps that you can take in order to get your career moving in the right direction without delay.

1. Get your mind right. No matter if you are a full-time or part-time writer, you need to schedule time to write each day and show up at your computer in the right frame of mind. You need to take writing seriously even if you are simply doing it as a side job. There is no denying that you will face times when your brain simply doesn’t want to work. That being said, if you are prepared and willing to get your mind right you should be able to minimize these times.

2. Do not be afraid of rejection. One of the most common reasons for slow development is fear. For instance, if you do not send query letters because you are afraid of rejection you will find that progress is hard to come by. I have had a bit of success as a freelance writer, yet I receive rejection letters time after time. Does this mean that I am a bad writer or that all my ideas are no good? Of course not. Remember, rejection is part of becoming a success as a writer.

3. Just write. Do not make the mistake of wasting time no matter what excuse you think you have. If you are a writer you need to write. For those with regular clients this is usually quite simple. If you do not have any work for clients, make sure that you are writing something. This could be anything from blog posts to query letters to a book proposal. Simply put, writers write!

These three tips should help you to jump-start your freelance writing career no matter why you have slowed down.
