Do you think making it big as a freelance writer is just a matter of luck ?
I think having luck in anything we set out to do may well play a part. But I still think that anyone who is willing to put the time and effort in to 'making it big' will reap the rewards eventually. Like everything else is does take time. Having said that if someone makes it big quickly without much effort, then that is certainly luck and I'm sure it does happen to a few.
They say "follow your passion" and if your passion happens to be something that people search Google for, you can earn decent amounts by writing on the Internet about something you are knowledgeable about and really interested in. In that sense, you are lucky. However, the term "freelance writer" is a wide one and covers writing for print publications as well. For that you need ability, focus, determination and application. Luck helps, but you can create your own luck, too.
Yes, luck is involved. The more you do it, and the more networking you do, the greater your chances of earning money will become. MANY authors today made themselves by writing short stories in local papers. Read a couple of autobiographies. Some authors (the humblest of the bunch) include short ones in the final pages of their books. Good luck!
It's a matter of working hard at achieving your objectives. In the case of a writer, there is much to learn in order to offer high quality printed work.
With hard work and dedication, little by little, you may begin producing the expected results. There are many things to learn about the craft of writing, and with good luck, you might begin to acquire the necessary skills to succeed as a freelance writer.
No one should decide to be a freelance writer to make it big. That just doesn't usually happen. You can make a good living as a freelancer, but making it big is for Matt Damond, and Ben Affleck.
Write because it makes you happy.
loved the last line ... I do really feel that being able to do something we really love is in itself making it big
And m thankful that lord has given me a guts to choose what I like in terms f my career inspite of it having low monetary value.
I think its not luck but hard work makes big as a freelance............
Its not just a matter of luck. You must do a lot of work yourself to get your name out there. You must write a lot of original pieces in a lot of different places. Try submitting pieces to magazines that accept freelance writing. Keep sending things in to several publishers. You should send in and publish several articles online a day as many times as you can a day. Its best not to send in the same article to different publishers because most publishers want original work.
I don't set my goal on making it big as a freelance writer. I only tell myself to keep trying my best. No matter what level I reach, I will be happy as long as I have tried my best. And being happy is the best luck I want.
