Having a Hard Time Finding Work?
As a freelance writer not having enough work is a tough spot to be in. For many, this is a regular occurrence because they find it difficult to locate and land new clients. There is no denying that every freelance writer has to deal with this situation from time to time. Fortunately, you donâ€™t have to let it linger if you know what you are doing. Having a good grip on the industry, as well as your career, will allow you to minimize the time you spend without enough work on your plate.
If you are having a hard time finding work you need to own up to this. Many freelance writers are stubborn and will not admit that they need help. Does this sound like you? If so, break out of this mold and realize that admitting what you are up against is the first step in making things better.
Now that you know what you are facing it is time to devise a game plan. It is one thing to know that you are struggling to find work, but another entirely to do something about it. Simply put, if you are not willing to devise a plan and then follow it you are never going to make it as a freelance writer.
Through my experience, all it takes is one break to get the ball rolling down hill. For instance, if you are going through a drought and havenâ€™t landed a new client in a long time you need to work harder than ever to change this. Once this happens you will regain your confidence, and hopefully use this to your advantage as you move forward. One client can lead to another and so on.
There is nothing wrong with admitting that you have hit a rough patch. Once you face this situation and devise a plan you are closer than ever before to getting back on track.
