From Worldwide Freelance:
Indeed it is possible for freelance writers to work from anywhere.
It’s a goal. It’s a dream. And it’s slowly happening. Articles like this inspire me to believe that I can indeed make this a full time career.
Unfortunately, the balance in my PayPal account make me realize I can’t do it yet. But I made it a goal in 2011 to write more, and I have. And I’ve managed to turn that into a part-time, actually getting paid, business. It’s happening. It’s growing. I’ll get there.
Still, there are things I need to work on.
1) I need to revamp this site with a new bio which unfortunately includes a new picture.
2) I need to rework my writing portfolio. That way when I’m going for a new assignment I don’t have to search through hard drives and thumb drives and web sites to find the requisite samples.
3) I need to market my skills and my work. That probably involves less time playing Words with Friends and checking out Pinterest.
4) I need to fine tune the type(s) of writing I want to do. Right now I’m all over the map. Sure I’d love to write that great American novel, and some day I will, but currently I need to continue to find the markets that pay. Speaking of which, I need to raise my rates.
I have this dream of writing from the beach house. Currently I lack the beach house. So, write now this little desk in Richmond works just fine.
