Ignore Common Freelance Writing Myths

If you are going to become a freelance writer you are sure to run into many myths during the early stages of your career. In fact, you may run into these before you ever decide to take the leap. During this time, you need to make sure that you ignore these common freelance writing myths. If you don’t, there is a good chance that they could scare you away from chasing your dream.

So what are some of the more common freelance writing myths that you will come across?

1. Freelance writers don’t make good money. I am tired of this one, but guess what? It is never going away. Simply put, you should completely ignore this statement. Just like any other industry, there are those who earn a lot and those who do not. That being said, there is nothing standing between you and earning a nice freelance writing income.

2. Becoming a freelance writer is hard work. I agree that becoming a success and earning money can be time consuming, and that it takes a devoted professional. But at the same time, it is a myth that you have to break down many walls in order to get started. Even if you have no experience, you can call yourself a freelance writer and begin to market your services in no time at all. This does not mean that you will become a success, but you can get started quickly and easily. 

3. The competition is so fierce that you will never find quality clients. Again, this is downright ridiculous. There are plenty of clients to go around, and if you offer quality service you are going to find a few that enjoy working with you. Competition can be fierce; there is no denying this. But don’t think that there are so many freelancers that you have no chance of breaking into the business.

These common freelance writing myths have been around for many years. The best thing that you can do is ignore them. Thinking that any of the above myths are true is only going to slow down the progress of your career.
