Patience and your Freelance Writing Career

Patience is very important no matter what business venture you are getting involved with. Even the largest companies in the world had to go through growing pains, times of doubt, etc. Of course, there are others that took off from day one, but they are few and far between. When it comes to a career in freelance writing, this is something to keep in mind. Patience is essential if you are going to stay within this career field for an extended period of time.

As I have mentioned in the past, a freelance writing career can take months to get up and running. While I found some success after only three months, it was hard to make it that long without giving up. After all, I went from a corporate job earning a solid living to hoping that something would break my way so that I could pay the bills. Without patience, I would have been searching the classifieds after a month as a freelancer.

Of course, there is a big difference between knowing that you need to be patient and actually doing so. To hang in there when everything seems to be going wrong, you need to keep in mind that every job has its ups and downs. If you were to quit your freelance writing career and start applying for office jobs, what would happen? That’s right, you would have to deal with rejections, low offers of pay, and much more. Simply put, you may have a guaranteed income, but being a freelance writer is not the only career with uncertainty and doubt.

Overall, be patient when starting a freelance writing career. Before you ever start, come to the realization that you will be tested time after time. But remember, if you stick around, you will get to reap the rewards in the end.
