This is where it all started for my freelance writing journey. I am still new at this and I have done tons of research to get started since the beginning of the year (but it’s not gonna stop there!)
I admit that I am clueless where to start but hey everyone gotta start somewhere first right? I was nervous (I still am!) to begin this new journey but to overcome this, I know I have to start on taking some action and so I did.
I have yet to build a portfolio about myself and honestly, I am clueless as to what I should write about myself, what I should sell myself on. One thing that I am sure of is that I a fantastic writer! I have always known that I am a good writer but I never really pursue a career into it because I don’t have the confidence to boost through it. I do have experiences in editing, writing articles and even help with cover letters as well. All these through professional setting and of course it is what I do on a daily basis as an administrator.
I have been writing frequently just last year. Writing has saved me from myself. I write to express my feelings, emotions and the experiences I have in the form of poetry. I began publishing it through one of my social media account and it has attracted readers and amazing writers. They were all supportive and sometimes I would have request to make a collaboration with them. I made new friends who are a gem to me as they have been very encouraging to me.
Why I wanted to start this journey on becoming a freelance writer? I have been encouraged by my friends (who have seen my work) that I should do this because they see me as a good writer and I should use this potential skill to good use. At first, I was skeptical to this approach and didn’t really want to do it. This idea was already seeded into my brain and it grew onto me to try it out. So i began my research. The more I dig in, the more I am intrigued to give this gig a try.
I am the type of person who loves to take up challenges because I like to see the sets of skills and abilities I have for the benefit of helping others as well as helping myself. I like to go the extra mile of helping others for the sake of their positive development and I feel that through writing, it helps a lot.
So with this, my journey to freelance writing begins.
