Three Simple Tips for Starting a Freelance Writing Career

Do you want to know the number one reason that aspiring freelance writers do not succeed? Simply enough, they never get started. If you are going to get involved with freelance writing you need to have the guts to take the plunge. No matter if you start off full-time or part-time, you need to make the move sooner rather than later. If not, you will join the thousands of others who want to write for a living, but instead stay stuck in their monotonous day job.

Here are three simple tips for starting a freelance writing career. They are not earth shattering, but instead simple and to the point. And when attempting to start a freelance writing career, simple is a good thing.

1. Determine what is holding you back, and then decide how you are going to get past this. For instance, many aspiring freelance writers feel that they are being held back by their lack of experience. But guess what? Everybody starts somewhere. If you do not have any samples, write some on topics that are of interest to you. All in all, no matter what is holding you back, you need to come up with a plan to overcome it.

2. Learn from freelance writers who are already having success. If you are reading this blog, you are probably interested in freelance writing in one way, shape, or form. By learning from me, you can avoid mistakes that I have made in the past, so that you can earn a solid income in the future. 

3. Practice patience. You are not going to make thousands of dollars your first month as a freelance writer. But over time, you can reach your goals if you stick with moving your career in the right direction. Some climb to the top of the ladder faster than others, but as long as you are patient you will get there sooner or later. 

Now that you know what it takes to start a freelance writing career, go ahead and get started. There is no reason to wait any longer!
