Today is the 25th of March, officially one year since I started freelance writing as a career. It’s hard to believe time has passed so quickly, but at the same time, it feels like I’ve been doing this forever.
As a whole, I’ve learnt more about myself and business in the last year than ever. Working from home means you’re completely independent and being self-employed means handling several different jobs at once. I won’t shy away from the fact that it’s been hard, but I’m so glad I preserved and wouldn’t change my experiences for the world.
To celebrate this all-important freelance writing anniversary, I thought I’d share just a few of the lessons I’ve learned over the last year. Not only to show how much I’ve grown but also to (hopefully) help you avoid making some of the same mistakes I did.
