    free lance writing has become a major employment resource for many people. it however is not that easy to become an effective freelance writer because one is required to be skilled and have reliable clients for their work. in some cases, it could be a total waste of time and resources if mismanaged. good guidance such as this is therefore needed for newbies. as a young freelance writer, I so much want to learn from these resources. thank you for the update.
