The process of trying to find freelance writing jobs can be depressing to put it mildly. The industry seems to be full of people with more qualifications, more experience, or simply better connections. It's important to realize that you're not alone in your search. Freelance writing is a job that lots of people dream about. It's easy to fantasize about a job that will allow you to use your skills and gifts and give vent to your artistic expression, yet pays you a handsome(or at least living) wage for working as and when you please from home.

The reality is a little different. It can be next to impossible to get enough freelance writing jobs to make a living. In addition, unless you already have a good portfolio, many employers won't even look at you because there are already so many brilliant freelance writers in the market for those jobs. Unless you're prepared to work for nothing, or next to nothing, that is.
