Freelance writing gigs suck big time!

Or they can if you let freelance writing gigs get you down. Let me explain… One of the things all new freelancers struggle with is self-confidence and, to be honest, that's something that never really goes away completely. No matter how experienced you get, there will always be times when you wonder if your writing is quite good enough. As you become a better writer and gain more traction, that creeping feeling of self-doubt tends to manifest itself slightly differently. For example, I recently landed a job, working for an agency, where I had to come up with three different styles of brand communication voice for a client of theirs. Although it's the kind of thing I've tackled several times before, writing for a brand-new client (even through an agency) is one of the most challenging parts of freelancing. It's also the time when that little bit of self-doubt can creep back…
