After a few years of being out of the freelance hustle, I’ve decided to start looking for writing gigs.
I’m not looking to do it full time again; been there, done that, and I’m glad I have the experience. But I want something part-time because–honestly–I’d much rather hustling for part-time gigs I can do from my couch rather than… well, rather than drive to work during rush hour (traffic can be a bitch in Charlotte).
So I’ve been digging out my clips, which entails a fair bit of Googling “Sarah Stone” and “Publication.” And… I wrote more pieces than I remember writing. I really should’ve compiled a list with links as they were published. Or maybe I did but it was lost when I got a new computer. Either way, I’m going to rectify that with help from Excel and Mountain Dew.
Finding freelance work isn’t the easiest thing in the world, and the biggest hurdle is going to be getting that first gig because my most recent clips are from 2016. (Though a couple pieces written back then were just published early last year.) Once I get the first one in the bag, I’ll feel better.
Like I’ve still got it. Which I do. I just need to show that after a couple of years away, I can still meet deadlines and write killer copy.
Have you ever freelanced? Do you have any go-to websites for finding gigs?
