Reasons for becoming a Freelance Writer

Why do you want to work as a freelance writer? Before you ever join this industry you need to know why you are doing so. There are many great reasons to become a freelance writer. Your reasons for following this career path may be different than mine – and there is nothing wrong with that. The important thing is that you are happy with your decision.

Here are a few common reasons for wanting to become a freelance writer:

1. You want more freedom. Time after time I have talked about how much freedom you get when you work as a freelance writer. This is true now and always will be. If you are tired of the rat race and taking orders from others, becoming a freelance writer will allow you to take back your freedom.

2. It is what you love. I enjoy writing and that is one of the main reasons why I chose this career. If you don’t enjoy writing you are probably going to be disappointed with your choice soon enough. Make sure you truly love writing and everything that goes along with it before you decide on this path.

3. Potential to make more money. When you work for a company they are in charge of how much money you make and when you begin to earn more (or less). This is never the case as a freelance writer. Instead, you are working on your own to earn as much money as you can. This potential is reason enough for many to chase their dream of becoming a full-time freelance writer.

Do you have any other reasons? If so, I would love to hear them. It is always nice to show aspiring freelance writers what others are thinking. Any comments would be greatly appreciated!
