How long have you been a Freelance Writer?
Every so often somebody asks me how long I have been a freelance writer. Some ask because they are generally interested in starting a career. Others want to see how long it took me to achieve success. Even though experience has a lot to do with where you are at in your freelance writing career, it is not the only thing to think about.
During the first year of my career I struggled on many levels. New freelance writers should expect the same, to a certain extent. I had a difficult time staying organized and managing my time. Fortunately, these problems began to fade away as the months went by. The more experience you gain the more knowledgeable you will become. In turn, it becomes much easier to deal with any issue â€“ big or small.
I have been a freelance writer for five years or so. Do I know everything? Of course not. And guess what? In five more years I still wonâ€™t know everything about the industry. That being said, I am always going to try to gain more experience.
How long you have been a freelance writer does not matter as much as what you are doing to reach your goals. Instead of using your time on the job as an excuse for failure, stop and realize that you have what it takes right now to achieve greatness.
