Freelance Writing Commitment Contract: Get the Life & Career You Want

This article contains a freelance writing commitment contract. What is this? Before I explain, let me tell you what precipitated it.

I read an excellent article on entitled 10 Steps to the Body You Want. As the title implies, the author, a doctor who counsels women trying to lose weight, outlines 10 steps to take to get the body you want.

As I read through the steps, I kept reflecting on the questions I receive almost daily from readers of this blog asking how to go about starting a freelance writing career.

The reason my mind kept wandering back to these readers is that the same advice the author dispensed in this article could have been given to practically every single reader who’ve asked me a question along the lines of, “How can I start freelancing fulltime?”

Really good tips. I've wanted to try for a long time, but am scared to leave my other job. I found other good tips here:

It's a natural reaction. To combat it though, make a plan to get started at least full-time. With each project, your confidence that you can make a real go of freelancing will soar.

Good luck if you decide to give it a go. You'll probably regret it if you don't at some point at least try, so again, make a plan -- and get to it!
