I first met Mark Levine in the late 1980s, when he was working as a reporter for the New York Timesand I was a graduate student at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. I had just been hired by the Times,and my first assignment was to do a story on Mark’s work. I was struck by his writing, and when I asked him about his background, he told me he had been a freelance writer for a number of years, and that he had just written his first book, FreelanceWriting: A Writer’s Guide to Making a Living,which was published in 1987. I bought a copy of the book, read it cover to cover, and then asked Mark if he would be willing to talk to me about his experiences as a freelancer. He agreed, and we talked for more than an hour. He told me about the ups and downs of freelancing, and I learned a lot from him. I also learned that Mark was a great writer, and it was clear to me that he was destined to become a very successful author. I am delighted to see that he has done just that. In this book, Mark shares with us the lessons he has learned over the course of his career, as well as the tools he has developed to help him become a better writer and a more successful freelance writer. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I have enjoyed writing it.
In this book I will share with you the tools that I have developed over the years to help me be a better freelance writer and to earn a living as a writer. Some of these tools I have learned from others, and some I have created myself. I will also share some of the mistakes I have made along the way, and how I have been able to overcome them. In the end, I hope that you will learn from my experiences and be able to develop your own set of tools that will help you to be successful in your own freelance writing career.
The first thing you need to know about freelancing is that it is not easy. It is hard work, and you will have to put in a lot of time and effort if you want to make a living at it. You will also have to be prepared to work long hours, and to be flexible. If you are not willing to do that, you will not be successful at freelancing. The second thing you should know is that there is no such thing as a sure thing when it comes to freelance writing. There are many factors that will determine whether you will be successful or not, including the type of writing you do, the subject matter you write about, and the market you are writing for. The third thing you must understand is that freelance writing is a business, and as such, it has its own rules and regulations. You need to be aware of these rules and know how to follow them if you are going to succeed. The fourth thing you will need to understand is how to market yourself and your work. This is the most important part of your freelance writing business, because if you do not market yourself, no one will know who you are or what you have to offer. The fifth and final thing I would like you to know is the importance of self-promotion and networking.
