Freelance writers — why become one

Freelance writing seems to be a popular choice for people who want to get into consulting. Following Become a Freelance Writer, many of you wrote in to say you’re interested in publishing your own work and getting paid for it.

The great thing about freelance writing is that you can write on any topic — as long as you can find a buyer for your work. Over the years, I’ve written about horseshoeing, MBAs, baby clothes, computer routers, banking software and other varied subjects. My work has appeared in magazines, newspapers, brochures, annual reports, business plans and even a textbook.  Although I make most of my living from consulting — by personal preference — I still love writing articles from time to time, since it provides such a great creative outlet.
