The Life of a Freelance Writers

This is a little piece on how I got started as a freelance writer.

Storytime Tapestry

When I started writing I gave it away and still there were places that did not want to accept it. I got so frustrated that I created my e-zine Storytime Tapestry so that other writers could write from their heart and not be confined by administrative
discussions.

My e-zine will be 13 years old this September.

Associated Content

Some of my writer friends said that I should not be giving my writing away but should be paid for it. I was reluctant at first because frankly I never thought anyone would find my writing good enough to pay me.

I then learned about websites that paid per view such as Associated Content now belonging to Yahoo Voices. From there I learned about contract work, which meant I would be a freelance writer for different websites; the good thing was I would get paid for my articles.

I did well with freelancing and I also wrote two books. I had started my third book but put it aside because my freelance work was paying better in the long run.

Freelancing has its ups and downs

I gradually became a freelancer taking on assignments to write about certain topics for other people or sites. These types of freelance writers are given instructions as to how to complete the assignments. Most of the time, the client maintains the copyright and will use his or her own name on the articles. When this happens the freelancer is also known as a ghost writer.

Freelancing has its ups and downs. If you are working for just one company there are usually highs and lows meaning there are times when there is a lot of work and times when there isn’t very much.


Since that is the way the field works many freelance writers work with several companies and online sites to make sure they get in the amount of work they need.

Freelance writing can be very stressful as instructions must be followed to a tee, there may not be enough information about the given subject to write about, and the deadlines are often very short. For example a client may require 50 articles on a given subject to be completed in a week.

Freelance writers become researchers as they are always searching the net for information for their articles. Freelance writers must be versatile as well as they write about any subject. They don’t usually get to pick and choose their subjects if they are working for a single contractor as I was.

These subjects may not hold any particular interest to the freelancers, but freelancers are more interested in looking for work not what interests them on a personal level; if they are trying to make a business out of writing. Of course if they are not, they will choose just what they want to write about.

Freelancers do get a better shot at picking the articles they want to write, if they are using a site which post the articles which are wanted and then the freelancers bid on these articles hoping to get the project.

Freelancing is a great field for Internet writers to embark upon but it is often very stressful and demanding. How well you do depends upon your writing skill level, your ability to be versatile, your tenacity and the principal of supply and demand.
