I didn’t plan to become a full-time freelance writer. In the beginning it seemed like a great way to make money while I searched for a more ‘traditional’ job. Spoiler alert: that’s not what happened.
One year ago, I quit my job (on purpose) and became a freelance writer (on accident). I completed my first freelance writing project on 10/15/16, making yesterday my one year anniversary as a full-time freelance writer. Hooray!
Before I put in my two weeks’ notice, I applied and interviewed for several positions. After quitting, I interviewed for a few more positions before relocating and calling it quits on submitting applications. (Except that one position I applied to in May—more out of curiosity than true desire.)
