Where is your Freelance Writing Career Headed?

Do you know where your freelance writing career is headed? Just like the rest of us, the answer is probably no. After all, it is impossible to know exactly what the future will bring. That being said, you do need to have some idea of what you want to happen in the future. This way, you can do whatever it takes to steer your career in the right direction.

Here are three questions to ponder if you are having a difficult time deciding where you want your career to go:

1. What areas do you want to expand into? For instance, you may be a freelance writer specializing in web copy. This is good for now, but in the future you may decide that you want to get involved with feature articles for print magazines. You should have expansion goals so that you are always increasing your workload and capabilities.

2. Do you want to keep your freelance writing business the same size? Or do you want to grow as big as possible? This is an important question to ask. As one person, you can only do so much. If you want to increase your output, you have two options: work more hours or hire others. I like the size of my freelance writing business and have no desire to work more hours or hire others on a regular basis. That being said, others are interested in growing their business day in and day out. Do you?

3. Are you interested in additional streams of income? If you want to make more money your answer should be yes. As a freelance writer, you can look for additional income streams within your career or by branching into parallel fields such as blogging, creating niche sites, etc.

You will never know for sure where your freelance writing career is headed until you get there. But this does not mean that you should keep your eyes closed and hope for the best. Ask yourself the three questions above so that you can more or less control the direction of your career.
