Common Freelance Writing Myths

Are you aware of the many common freelance writing myths that circulate the industry? If so, some of these have probably worried you a bit in the past and may still be eating away at your mind. But remember, a myth is just that: it is not the truth. By learning about these common myths, including why they are not true, you will be able to move past them and continue building a successful career.

The following are three common freelance writing myths that you should never believe:

1. Let’s start off with the most common and widely known freelance writing myth: you cannot make any money now, and there is no chance of this changing in the future. This is absolutely a myth. If you do not believe it, check out my freelance writing income report from last month. And guess what? The money that I earn is small change compared to other freelance writers out there. This does not mean that making money as a freelance writer is easy, but it is possible.

2. There is too much competition to succeed as a freelance writer. Once again, this is nothing more than a myth. What industry do you know of where there is no competition? No matter what career path you take, you are always going to be up against others who are vying for the same jobs. When it comes down to it, there is plenty of freelance writing work out there for anybody who is willing to search for it. You can write for magazines, newspapers, websites, large corporations, small companies, and much more.

3. It takes too long to become a full-time freelance writer. This is a myth for two reasons. First off, “too long” means something different to everybody. Additionally, there is no saying that it will take you years on end to reach your goal of being a full-time writer. It only took me a few months, and with so much work available, you may be able to build your income to full-time status even quicker.

No matter who tells you these myths are true, you should never believe them. If you do, it will slow you down from achieving your freelance writing goals.
