Some of you may not know this, but I am trying to become a freelance copywriter/copyeditor. Tasha, being the lovely lady that she is, has helped me make my own website and has showed me a lot about how freelance works. If there are any writers, web designers, or graphic designers out there that are stressing out about how much freelance should cost, I’m right there with you!

Here is a quote from Writersmarket.com,
“think about the earning potential of your work, and how you can make freelancing more profitable and fun.

Unless there’s a real bonus (a special clip, or a chance to try something new) turn down work that doesn’t meet the mark and replace it with a better-paying project” (Article Title: How Much Should I Charge).
