Can you write?

You know freelance writing is a very competitive field anymore.  There are a ton of people out there who think they can write.  But not all of them will make the grade when it comes to a good and well put together article.  In fact several will find that it’s a lot tougher to do then they thought.

This is really true, and something that I had never really thought of before.  See my fiance is at home with me during the day, one of the people who can’t find a good job out there as of yet.  But I told him why don’t you try writing.  It’s easy to do and you can make some money, if your quick and good enough that is.  So he sat down and decided to try some work on gaming.  See we both love to game and this is a very easy topic to write on, or so we thought.

It wasn’t but a few hours after that and he was like, “hell I only have like 150 words”!  We needed something like 500 on this topic.  Needless to say it was me who finished up that work for him and since then he hasn’t tried another article.  But it was just funny because well I really thought it was something that everyone could do and I was kind of surprised.

Not because I think it’s easy, because some topics are a bit hard to write on.  But I just thought that everyone could come up with a good article.  Well my grammar may not be the best in some of the stuff I write, but those words, well they fly out of me at times.  This has been why I’ve seen a lot of success in the work that I’ve handed in over the years I’ve been working.

However, that doesn’t mean that I think I’m great at the job either.  There are people out there that write a lot better than me and they are stuck in other jobs.  But hey I guess that is the benefit that I’ve been able to take advantage of, following my dream and making it work for me.
