No More Writer’s Back – Hopefully

Just a quick post for anyone looking for a writing chair that is really comfortable and

chairsertawriting
Serta Essentials Computer Chair, Faux Leather and Mesh, Cream

functional, but also not bulky and ugly like so many office chairs. I FINALLY found one on Amazon of all places. It’s by Serta, who I thought only made mattresses. It comes in a wide range of colors from your standard black to fun colors like hot pink and powder blue (pics below). It was very affordable and far more comfortable than I was expecting it to be for the price. Thought I’d share the love because I’m basically swooning over here.

Hopefully this chair is the answer to my horrible and chronic case of writer’s back/neck/ribs.

No, this is NOT  a sponsored post, but I am using my affiliate link so if someone buys the chair I make a few pennies. I really just love my new chair!

Books for Freelance Writers

Even during my few weeks away from the site, I continued to get emails from people asking about how to be a freelance writer. Some ask for recommendations for books on becoming a freelance writer, others have asked for a step-by-step rundown on how to be a freelance writer, and some have even gone as far as asking me if I can share my work or give them some of my clients. (In case you’re not sure, that’s kind of a no-no. No freelance writer is going to just hand over their clients just because you want them. Just sayin’.)

The best I can do is tell you to put together a portfolio of writing samples and pitch your ass off. Pitch, apply for writing jobs, and then pitch some more.

You can find a list of writing books that I’ve found helpful over the years here.

Here are a few I’d recommend for freelance writing specifically:

renegade writer

The Renegade Writer: A Totally Unconventional Guide to Freelance Writing Success

 

The Freelance Content Marketing Writer

The Freelance Content Marketing Writer: Find your perfect clients, Make tons of money and Build a business you love

 

The Essential Guide to Freelance Writing

The Essential Guide to Freelance Writing: How to Write, Work, and Thrive on Your Own Terms

 

If you’re a successful freelancer who wants to share some words of wisdom or recommend a book that you found helpful, we’d all love to hear from you! Leave a comment below or drop me a message
