|Freelance writers have to keep on kicking.|
Want to make it as a freelance writer? Then you have to keep on kicking. Kicking out ideas, query letters, writing and edits. If you're not on the playing field, then you're not in the game.
If your in the game, you might as well aim for the goal. Don't pass the ball off. No one else can take the shot for you. Look for an opening and make your move. It's not an open net, there are goalkeepers you have to get past. The key is to have the right idea, line up the angle, kick it past the editor and score the gig.
Miss? Try again. Score? Awesome! Do it again. If your writing keeps scoring, you might be added to the team roster.
Are you aiming for the goal?
