Freelance writers tend to approach the holidays with a sense of uncertainty. During this time of year, editors are M.I.A., clients can dry up, and family matters demand your attention when you really should be at the keyboard. However, the holidays don’t have to be a dead zone for your freelance writing business.
If you have regular clients, planning for your holiday work in advance can be helpful, but this is also a good time of year to make some extra cash on short-term, one-off projects. Stay on top of the job posts, and you’ll find lots of clients in need of last-minute work that you can step in and perform. This is also the perfect time of year to make sure your business is set up for success in the new year.
