Lots of people look for advice about how to become a freelance writer. It’s a great way to get away from cube farms, bureaucracy and crazy bosses (at least most of the time!) Because I was able to turn writing into my full-time profession, I wanted to help out others who want to pursue this career path. So I did what writers do: I wrote up a 12-step guide on how to get started. This guide is based on my own experience as well as a bunch of advice I learned from fellow writers when I started out.
In the guide, I talk a little about the business of freelancing, how to set prices and determine what to write about, when the dry spells hit (and how to prepare!) and other advice on how to get started.
