What makes a Successful Freelance Writer?

Just like any career, it is difficult to pinpoint what exactly makes a successful freelance writer. There are some people who have loads of success without following the traditional path. There are others who never earn as much as they would like even though they are doing everything right in their mind. There is one thing you do not want to forget: the definition of the word success. Until you know what success means to you, it is difficult to determine whether or not you have reached your goals.

I judge success in many ways. Of course, the way I do this is not right or wrong; it is just my opinion. The most important thing to me is that I enjoy my job. When I worked as a sales manager everyday was full of disgust and boredom. Sure, there was an occasional good time, but for the most part I hated my job. Fortunately, the moment I began work as a freelance writer I realized that I was onto something good. If you do not enjoy being a freelance writer you are going to have a hard time achieving any sort of success.

What about money? Most people, including me, consider money to be an important factor in determining success. You should be proud of what you earn, but this is not something to obsess over. Not every freelance writer is going to earn the same amount of money. You may consider $1k/month a huge success. Others want to earn much more than this. As long as you set goals it is easy to chart your successes and failures.

As a freelance writer you decide what constitutes success. Just like every aspect of your career, you are in total control.
