Reasons to Talk with other Freelance Writers
Do you take the time to speak with other freelance writers when you get the chance? Or do you run the other way because you donâ€™t think they have anything to offer? Over the years I have found that there are many benefits of staying in touch with other writers. Below are just a few:
1. No matter how much experience they have, you can learn something from every freelance writer. You should be interested in advancing your career, day in and day out. Ask questions of other writers, and take their advice to heart. You donâ€™t have to listen to everything you hear, but you may be surprised at how much you can pick up from others.
2. Teach. It is great to learn from other freelance writers, but you should be willing to return the favor if at all possible. If somebody asks you a question, make sure you answer them as best you can. When you help somebody else they are more likely to do the same for you in the future.
3. Ask questions. Instead of beating around the bush when speaking with other freelance writers, come out and ask questions that have been on your mind. This gives you the chance to dig down to the deep details that have been bugging you. An experienced freelancer can probably answer all your questions â€“ no matter what they may be.
4. Make new friends! Through my years as a freelance writer I have learned a lot from others. And along with this, I have come to make many new friends. This alone is reason enough to open up and speak with others anytime you get the chance.
By now, you should be able to see why it is a good idea to speak with other freelance writers. Do you make a habit of doing this?
