It’s been years since I’ve been an active freelance writer. But I’m back at it and rapidly gaining a new client base, and I’m starting to remember all the reasons that I love being a freelance writer.
I have been working in other industries for the past several years. During that time, I lost track of my freelance writing clients, contacts, and portfolios. Now, I’m working back toward the freedom and independence of the freelance writing lifestyle. That said, I’m nearly at ground zero. So I have to remember how I did it the first time, and do it again.
Being a freelance writer is a tough biz at times. Often I get proposals declined with statements like this.
