Freelance Writing: Are you Just Chasing Quick Money?
If you are thinking of becoming a freelance writer because you can earn â€œquick moneyâ€ you may want to reconsider. Yes, there is money to be made and plenty of it once you become established. But at the same time, it is important to note that nothing is going to come easy. Even if you catch a few breaks along the way you will still have to do some work in order to cash in. More and more people are deciding to jump into the freelance writing industry because they feel that it is simple to get started, and easy to make a lot of money. While I agree that anybody can get involved if they have the right skills, you should never believe that making money is going to be simple.
There are many reasons to become a freelance writer and money is just one of them. But in my opinion this should not be the only factor that pushes you into this career. In other words, there is nothing wrong with wanting to make money but be sure that becoming a freelance writer will do more for you. For instance, I truly enjoy writing. Even if I was not earning a lot of money I would still stick to this career path because I have a lot of fun day in and day out. To go along with this, as a freelance writer I get to meet a lot of new people and this is something that I also enjoy. Yes, money is important but there are other reasons why I have stuck with my career as a freelance writer for so long.
Remember, there is no such thing as quick money. This holds true no matter what career you choose. If you want quick money you will have to take your chance with a lottery ticket.
Money can motivate you and hopefully turn you into a determined freelance writer. But donâ€™t let this be the only reason for joining the industry. Instead, make sure you have more than one reason for becoming a writer. This will help to ensure a long lasting, enjoyable career.
