Talk to other Freelance Writers
Being a freelance writer can get lonely at times. You sit at home all day working without any interaction. Sure, you may talk one-on-one with a family member from time to time, but this is usually more of a distraction than anything else. For this reason, I enjoy talking to other freelance writers and encourage others in the industry to do the same.
There are many benefits of communicating with other freelance writers. As noted above, it can help to break up some of the boredom associated with working alone. A quick call or email to another freelancer can give you a break and make you feel that you are still associating with others.
You can also learn a lot. I love asking questions of other freelance writers. Along with this, anytime I am stumped, getting advice from a respected professional in the field is always a great idea. Over the years, I have built up a strong network of freelance writers who are willing to talk about whatever I want (within reason). Of course, I always return the favor.
You can communicate with other freelance writers in many ways. They include phone, email, and instant message. To go along with this, you can also use forums to get in touch with others. This may not be the type of direct communication you are looking for, but it is a good start nonetheless.
Donâ€™t be afraid to talk to other freelance writers. Most of them, including me, are willing to open up and bring others into our circle. I believe that the more people I have in my network the better off we are all going to be.Â
