Making six figures as a freelance writer can happen. In fact, it does happen quite often to those who make a strategic plan and diligently stay on track for the long haul. But can you get rich quick as a writer?
Many people dream of a day when they can quit their day job and work from home. Probably one of the quickest ways to start making at least a little bit of money online is through writing. Every website needs content, and many webmasters pay people to provide that content.
If someone asked you if you are a writer, what would you say? Whatever genre of writing you are pursuing, what is the label you use when you talk about yourself? Do you think of yourself as a writer, or just as someone who wants to be a writer? Someone that will become a writer someday?
I have heard a lot of people lately ask how to become a writer. Interesting question.
I guess the answer to that depends on what you think a writer actually is.
The obvious answer is that a writer is someone who writes. So if you think of yourself as an “aspiring” writer, a “wannabe” writer or a “future” writer, chances are you’re creating your own roadblocks.
