    Thanks for the advice. I’ve been a freelance writer for 13 years, and the opportunities aren’t as easy to find these days.

    Thank you for your helpful advice and you are right getting started is the hardest part. I am a freelance writer, but haven’t had the luck you have had in getting clients so far, but I feel I have not been trying hard enough. I think I need to just do it, but at the moment I am scared. But I will do it some-day soon. Veronica.

    Thank you for the great post. During your 1st few months did you find you got bogged down with all the information on the web about freelance writing? Some days, I feel like I’m innundated with newsletters. Now I cherry-pick them.
    Travel safe on your life’s path.

    Thanks for the responses! Julie – yes, I have definitely opted out of a lot of emails and freelance writing services. I really try to pick and choose how I apply so I’m not wasting my time. I’m also weary of service thats require a membership fee, have you ever tried any of these?

    Hello there Victoria,

    I’m turning one year old in the freelance world this April. Thanks for this post. I was beginning to drop my guard. I think anyone whose afraid to start should just get writing anyway. Keep thinking about it (like I tried being a perfectionist this past few months) and you’ll be too overwhelmed to make any headway. I’m currently trying a strong comeback to match last October’s efforts.

    I totally agree, getting started is the hardest part. I’ve started to keep track of projects and clients in an Excel document which seems to really help me see my success and my lulls as well as track what i need to invoice.
