Why are you a Freelance Writer?

Have you ever asked yourself why you became a freelance writer? If you cannot answer this question, there is a chance that you are not happy with your career. After all, you got into this line of work for a reason, right? Personally, there are several reasons that I decided to join the wonderful world of freelance writing. Here are just a few of them:

1. I love writing! I received my college degree in journalism, and even though it took me a while to get involved after graduation, I was always thinking about it. If something keeps coming to mind time after time, it is safe to say that you should find out why.

2. Even though I was always told that working as a freelance writer was a low paying job, I never really believed it. After all, there are many who are earning a freelance writing income in excess of $100k. I may not make that much money, but it sure beats sitting in a cubicle and working for somebody else.

3. I like to work independently, and call my own shots. This is not to say that I try to avoid others, but the flexibility of working on my own is definitely a huge draw of being a freelance writer. I get to set my own schedule, work at my own pace, and control my income to a certain extent. If you work in the corporate world, you are well aware that taking orders is a part of life.

The above are three reasons why I became a freelance writer. Of course, there are many other benefits of this career such as making friends with clients and colleagues, the opportunity to learn, and the chance to expand into other areas of business.

If you are thinking about becoming a freelance writer, decide why this is the career choice for you. It is much better to consider the pros and cons of this career before starting, rather than getting involved just to find that you made the wrong choice.
