#102 The Thing About Freelance Writing, with Lindy Alexander

If you’ve ever thought of supplementing your income with a bit of travel writing, dabbling with magazine writing or becoming a serious full time freelancer, then sit back and listen as Lindy Alexanders shares what she’s learnt along the way to earning $100k a year as a freelance writer. Here are some of the things we discuss:

  • Being a fast, trusted and reliable writer
  • The shift towards digital pay rates lifting
  • Compelling personal stories
  • Developing relationships
  • Inflight magazines
  • Research
  • How to pitch
  • Finding ideas
  • Testimonials
  • Taking good pics
  • Managing workflow
  • Saying no
  • Biggest fails

If it all sounds romantic, then you’re right, it is. But it’s also hard work and you need to be professional in your approach if you want to be the go-to writer for editors. You can find out more about Lindy and her year of freelancing, and subscribe to her newsletter here.

About the author, Melinda

I'm an authorpreneur, English teacher and podcaster who dreams of a life on the road full of adventures and handsome heroes, whilst making squizillions of dollars in book sales to pay for my chocolate fix. In the real world, I write novels and non-fiction, and offer my expert advice via online courses (as soon as I make them) and writing retreats (as soon as I organise them).
