Three Ways to Commit Freelance Writing Suicide

Do you value your freelance writing career? If so, you want to avoid anything that may hold you back. Believe it or not, there are many ways to commit freelance writing suicide. And as you can imagine, this is not a good thing. Here are three situations to avoid at all costs:

1. Never plagiarize. If you get caught doing this you are going to run into more issues than you can imagine. Not only is your current client going to turn you away, but you are also going to get a bad reputation within the industry. This is never easy to overcome, and is a sure fire way to commit career suicide. As a freelance writer this is something that you must take seriously every day you sit down at your computer.

2. Don’t be an angry freelancer. Are you the type of person who is always in a bad mood? Do you always see the glass half empty? Nobody wants to do business with a freelancer who is difficult to get along with. You may be able to land clients, but if you show an evil side you will never land long-term gigs. It is your job to not only produce quality content, but to also keep an even disposition so you can form long lasting relationships.

3. Acting like you know more than the client. Even though you may have a lot of knowledge, you don’t want to come across as arrogant. If you do, your clients are going to toss you to the curb sooner rather than later. There is nothing wrong with offering your opinion, but you definitely don’t want to come across as a know-it-all. Simply put, it is your job as a freelance writer to do what the client asks. As long as you are getting paid and not crossing any legal lines you should move ahead with the project as it is outlined for you.

As you can see, you don’t want to commit freelance writing suicide. Instead, avoid the above situations at all costs.
