Freelance Writing Freedom

In my opinion, one of the biggest benefits of being a freelance writer is the freedom that it offers. I am not bogged down by reporting to a boss, or being required to show up at an office five days a week. Instead, I have the freedom to do what I please as long as I serve my clients.

I spent this past weekend, as well as last Friday, in Palm Beach. Although I am not big on vacationing, I decided to take a short trip nonetheless. Not only do I hate flying, but leaving my freelance writing work behind is always tough. That being said, I do have the ability to check email from the road, and since the majority of my trip was on the weekend, this helped me to stay on track.

Would I have been able to take this trip if I worked a 9-5 job? Probably. But of course, this would have meant taking a vacation day, explaining myself to the boss, and having to worry about the headaches of heading back to the office upon my return. As a freelance writer, I avoided all of this. Instead, I made sure that my clients were aware of my absence and then I took off. And despite the fact that my plane landed late Sunday night, I knew that I would be able to work the next day since my office is right down the hall from by bedroom.

There are many reasons to become a freelance writer. But if you had to narrow it down to just one, would freedom be at the top of your list? This is definitely something that I enjoy about the freelance writing life.
