The Best Freelance Writing Advice I Heard All Year

Heard any useful writing advice lately? I have.

Since July, I’ve been holding weekly live events for members of Freelance Writers Den. Each week, I invite a writing pro to guest on the podcast and share their knowledge.

This has quickly shaped up to be my favorite part of being Den Mother! I’ve gotten to chat with some of the top authors of freelance-writing advice — people I’ve long admired and thought were super-smart. They didn’t disappoint live, either — we’ve had inspiring, informational, interesting talks.

Out of more than 20 hours of chat with experts, what stands out? Here are a few snippets of the best advice I heard:

Sean Platt of Ghostwriter Dad on why now is the best time to be a freelance writer:
