Is Freelance Writing Fun?
I talk a lot about how much money you can earn as a freelance writer. The reason for this is simple: this is what most aspiring writers want to know. That being said, you need to ask yourself whether or not you are having fun as a freelance writer. Even if you can earn a lot of money, if you are not having fun you will burnout sooner rather than later.
Simply put, I would not be a freelance writer if I was not having fun. I left my job in the â€œsales worldâ€ because it was becoming boring, and I was tired of dealing with the politics of an office setting. This was not fun for me, so I decided to venture into the freelance writing industry so I could once again feel good about myself and the direction of my career.
What makes freelance writing so much fun? The answer to this question is not going to be the same across the board. For instance, I enjoy freelance writing because I have always been interested in this field. On the other hand, I know freelance writers who have no formal training but fell into writing for one reason or the next. And while they were apprehensive at first, they are now having more fun than ever before. When it comes down to it, you and only you can decide if you enjoy freelance writing.
Just like any career, freelance writing is fun for some people and not so exciting for others. Before you decide to jump into this career full-time you will want to decide how you feel. Will you have fun no matter how much money you are making? If so, there is a good chance that this career is right for you. But if you are only after the money, this is not the best field. It takes time, determination, and some luck to succeed in the long run. If you are having fun, waiting for the money to come is much easier.
