Constance Hale talks about why freelancing can be amazing. It's unpredictable, usually unreliable, but a great personal goal to reach to challenge oneself to tackle any number of topics possible. Good motivation for people unsure if they want to take that step to commit time to this profession. What do you want to write about? Just pick the publication that would let you write about and pitch it. But remember to be flexible about your process, your content, and your language. Different editors like different styles and have different ways of working. Keep all this in mind and empower yourself to freelance.
