The Hungry Freelancer : How to Break Into (and Succeed In) the World of Freelance Writing by Beth Jones is a pretty good resource for anyone thinking about freelance writing.
Freelance writing covers just about any kind of writing where you are not working directly for someone else for a long period. That pretty much covers anyone who makes money writing without being an employee.
The author says that it is quite possible to make a living doing freelance writing projects. But you have to actually do the work. She says you should write something every single day…if only one paragraph. This will help you improve your writing skill.
This book covers just about everything you need to know to become a freelance writer and make a living at it. Including the downsides. One of which is that if you don’t work every day you won’t make money on the days you don’t work…so how much you make depends on how much you do.
The author talks about how to get started, how to find clients, and the days when you just don’t want to write anything at all.
The books contains a list of resources where you can find writing jobs too. The book was easy to read and understand and I learned a lot.
If you are thinking about taking up freelance writing I recommend you read this book first. Especially if, like me, you are not really sure you want to try to make a living at it.
The book can be read on an IPad, Kindle, IPhone, or Android and You can buy The Hungry Freelancer on Amazon.com.
