Yes or No to Freelance Writing?

Every few days I will receive a note from an aspiring freelance writer asking for advice on whether or not they should move forward with their career. When deciding to start a freelance writing career there are sure to be doubts in your mind. Soon enough you have to make a decision for or against this.

There are some things you can think about to make your decision easier. For one, do you really love writing? This is the first thing you should look into. If you find that you have a deep love for writing you are at least on the right path. This does not necessarily mean you should turn this into your career, but it is a very good start.

At some point you need to look into the finances of becoming a freelance writer. How much money do you need to earn every month to pay your bills? Once you know this number you can decide if working full-time in this capacity is doable. The last thing you want to do is start a freelance writing career and find that you cannot pay your bills. This will send you back to a “nine to five” in no time at all.

In addition to the above points, I always tell people to try things out on a part-time basis before moving into a full-time capacity. This gives you the chance to keep your regular job while getting a better idea of what goes into working as a freelance writer. If you begin to build your career and find that you love all aspects of it, it may be time to go full-time. On the other hand, you may learn that you don’t enjoy this path and want to give up altogether.

So, what do you think? Are you going to say yes or no to a career as a freelance writer?
