Which Freelance Writing Projects do you enjoy the most?
Members of my freelance writing course are probably tired of answering this question: which projects do you enjoy the most? This is something I ask at least once per week. Sure, it may be overkill, but it is a very important question to answer time and time again. When you know which projects you enjoy you can focus on finding those that fit the mold.
What you enjoy working on is up to you. Just because I enjoy writing feature articles does not mean you will feel the same way. Every freelance writer is unique in the types of projects that they like to take on.
Try this exercise. Write down all the different types of freelance writing projects you have completed over the past few months. From there, rate them on a scale of 1 â€“ 10 with 10 being most enjoyable. This will give you a good idea of which projects you enjoyed, which ones you donâ€™t want to take on again, and which ones are somewhere in the middle.
This does not mean you should only accept projects that you enjoy; at least not for beginners. When you are trying to build your career you want to get experience in a number of different areas. How will you know if you like or dislike writing sales letters until you give them a shot? You wonâ€™t. Until you have a solid base and know for sure that you can generate clients that offer the projects you enjoy the most, be open to anything and everything that comes your way.
If you do not know which projects you enjoy the most try to figure this out over the next few days. It is an important question to answer because it will go a long way in helping you shape the direction of your career.
