    As a freelance writer trying to help others get into the business, I feel like I have to be honest about something. There are a lot of sunny days. No matter where you live, there are a lot of sunny days, and because you’re a freelance writer, you’re not going to be able to enjoy them. There are oodles of benefits to being a freelance writer, but if you’re interested in becoming a freelance writer, you have to know about the bad with the good.

    When you start working with a new client, they might ask you to sign a non-disclosure agreement, or NDA. They’re actually quite common, especially on bidding sites where you might not get the job.

    Three Things I’ve Learned from Grey’s Anatomy

    Mar 22nd, 2024 | By Allison | Category: Freelance Writing, Writing Tips

    I love Grey’s Anatomy. Sue me. I know the show isn’t nearly as good as it used to be. I know that it’s a chick flick turned into a TV show. I know that the actors are a little elitist.
    I still love it, and I have since about season two, when my college friends got [...]
