Starting a Freelance Writing Career: What is next?
Over the years I have found that everybody is different when it comes to how they started their freelance writing career. Some start out part-time, others dive in full-time without thinking twice, and some get so lost that they have a difficult time planning even the most basic of steps.
So what is next for you? As you can imagine, everybody will have a different answer to this question. No matter if you are starting a freelance writing career or already working in this capacity, your vision for the future is sure to be different than the next person.
If you donâ€™t know what to do next you should take a step back to see where you have already been. This should give you a clearer view of where you are headed. You may have a business and marketing plan in place and be ready to act on it. But another person may have neither, and it is obvious that they need to take care of the planning process before doing anything else.
To advance your career you should always be asking yourself what is next. Not only what is next, but what move makes the most sense. When you do this you can be rest assured that each step you take is going to move you closer to your overall goals.
Success as a freelance writer is based largely on the decisions that you make. If you take a wrong step you will have to backtrack and start over. This may sound like a big deal, and it can be. But also remember that making mistakes is part of starting a freelance writing career. Just make sure you learn from your mistakes so you donâ€™t repeat them in the future.Â
