Quick Reasons why I love being a Freelance Writer

Every so often somebody asks me why I love being a freelance writer. This is something I try to talk about from time to time on my blog. My reasons for being a freelance writer are probably different than yours. Below are three quick reasons why I love my career. Maybe you will agree with a few of these points.

1. Freedom. When you work as a freelance writer you do not have to take orders. This means you have the freedom to call your own shots on everything from when to work to how many hours you put in to which projects you take on, and much more. There is a downside to so much freedom, but it cannot outweigh the benefits.

2. I love to write. This is something that many aspiring freelance writers forget about. If you do not love to write, your career as a freelancer will probably dissolve sooner rather than later. Don’t get started with a career as a freelance writer unless you really love to write.

3. Earning potential. What sense does it make to work a nine to five job in which your earning potential is capped? To me, this is silly. As a freelance writer you are never told by anybody how much money you can earn. Working hard and landing the right clients will allow you to increase your earnings. Simply put, you never hit a wall as a freelance writer. If you want to make more money, go get it!

Many of you may agree with these reasons. Some of you may have other reasons for wanting to be a freelance writer. The great thing is that we do not have to be on the same page. As long as you love your career you don’t have anything to worry about.
