The Transition from Part-time to Full-time Freelance Writer
Are you thinking of making the transition from part-time to full-time freelance writer? If so, this is a big leap that you are taking. But if you are ready, it is one that you need to take sooner rather than later.
Here are three tips that can help make your transition to a full-time freelance writing career more enjoyable:
1. Know what you are getting into. Working full-time as a freelance writer is different than doing so as a side job. Make sure you are ready to put in longer days, and that you have enough work to keep you busy. With no other income it is very important that your part-time career scales into a full-time workload as soon as possible.
2. Answer any burning questions before you decide to take the leap. Every freelance writer has different questions. Some want to know how to market more successfully as a full-timer. Others want to know how many hours they will have to put in. There is an answer to every question that is on your mind. You just have to go out and find it. Look online, in books, and talk to other freelancers with full-time experience.
3. Go all in. Some people are so scared of this move that they tip-toe around it and never really dive in. If you are truly ready to become a full-time freelance writer you need to move forward with gusto. When you donâ€™t go all in you are making it more difficult to reach your goals.
The transition from part-time to full-time freelance writer doesnâ€™t have to be overly complicated. The tips above should help you at least a little bit. This is a big career move. Even though you may be scared, once you settle into your full-time freelance writing career you will be glad that you faced your fear and took the leap.Â
