Freelance writing avenues to success

crayon-writing.jpg

Being a full-time freelance writer is a wonderful destination, and luckily there are lots of pathways that lead there. Unfortunately, sometimes it seems like some paths move around, taking you places you didn’t mean to go. And, happily, there are paths you stumble on that are perfect.

Anyway, philosophical thoughts aside, I’m finding a lot of paths I hadn’t considered on my road to freelance writing self sufficiency.

You may have noticed a new addition to the sidebar: Crayon Writer in the Blogosphere. I mention two of my other blogs, and two blogs where I’m an author. As a new HubPages author, I’ll be putting links to new posts as I write them. Eventually I’ll move them all to my Best Work tab.

So if you’re interested in reading more of my writing, take a look at the links. Be sure to leave a comment here or there (or everywhere…publicity is a good thing), and let me know what you think.

The other avenue I’m pursuing like crazy is Craigslist. I’ve actually landed a couple of good gigs there. If you haven’t tried it, you should. Apply to several, and, assuming your portfolio is good, you should get some work. Then be sure to add your work to your portfolio so you can get more

    Freelance writers is pretty competitive by nature – almost everyone knows english

    but it’s a wonderful job if you are fulltime at it, beats an office desk job that is..
