If you write for the love of the game or perhaps as an outlet for your creative genius, then kudos to you. I did that for a while too. It was a glorious time. Then the bills started rolling in and I figured I should probably try to get paid to write instead as well.
Fast forward almost a year and I’ve managed to pull in some regular freelance clients that actually pay me to write for them each and every month.
If you’ve followed all the sound advice in articles like How to Maximize Your Earning Potential As a Freelance Writer, in theory you too should have well-paying regular clients and can now stop worrying about the bills. The money will roll in every month (or week, or whatever) and you can concentrate on the sole task of writing instead, right?
Well in theory, yes – but only if your clients actually pay you. And only if your clients actually pay you on time.
