Three Tips for Planning your Freelance Writing Future

If you want your freelance writing career to move in the right direction, you need to plan for the future. While there is no way of knowing what the future holds, if you set goals and think about where you want your career to go you will be in a much better position.

Here are three tips for planning your freelance writing future:

1. Set big goals! Although you may not reach every goal that you set, big goals will keep you reaching for the stars day in and day out. It is nice to have small goals along the way as well, but these can only take you so far. What is a big goal, you may ask? This is different for everybody, but a couple common ones may be reaching a certain level of freelance writing income or becoming a full-time freelance writer.

2. Be realistic about where you want your career to go in the months and years to come. As mentioned above, there is nothing wrong with having big goals. But with that being said, you need to stay realistic. For example, it would not be realistic to say that you want to have five novels published by the end of 2008. But it would be realistic to set a goal of completing one novel in this time frame.

3. Plan out the small steps that will allow you to reach your end goal. If you take small steps along the way and can see that you are making progress, you will have a much better chance of staying on track. This is why I suggest that you have a to-do list to work from everyday.

The great thing about a career in freelance writing is that you are 100 percent in charge of your future. When you work for somebody else, you can only move up in the company and make more money if they say so; this is not the case if you are a freelance writer. You can call all the shots, and in turn reach all your goals if you are devoted to doing so.
