The good news: there’s a broad market for freelance writing. You can quit your day job and get paid for your writing skills.
The sober news: how in the heck do you get started?
Chris Guillebeau is on fire, has been for a long while. Right now he’s ripping through a nationwide book tour of his latest book, The Happiness of Pursuit, documenting his quest to visit every country in the world and the lessons he learned along the way.
He’s also the founder of Unconventional Guides, which were designed to give people tools to create something for themselves or craft a life they want.
Bluntly put, he hires smart writers to convey those ideas.
His guide to freelance writing is no different.
But whoah, wait… what about me?
YES, I am also a freelance writer. I’ve done travel writing, copy writing, educational writing and creative writing. Things I promise to talk more about on this site and in my monthly newsletter.
Right now my brain is lodged with finishing my book that I promised you a hundred years ago.. if you remember that?
Anyway, enough about me.
