First Published: April 27, 2016; Last Updated: Sunday, January 10, 2021.I love inspirational quotes. I really do. Over the past several years, I have published many lists of my favorite quotes collection — on life, success, innovation, perfection, and entrepreneurship. I have been saving quotes that I found on writing for a while now, and I do feel that there is enough to make it into a list. It's very focused and is targeting writers (including bloggers ;) ). Words (especially in quotes) are powerful, in fact so powerful that it can give you goosebumps. So here I'm listing some of the famous quotes on writing — for you and for me — I really hope it helps you stay focused and stay inspired all the time. Wait, do remember one thing:
"Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration." — Thomas Alva EdisonI truly believe these quote will inspire you to perspire to write more, even more, and even more than that.
If you have been following my freelance topics then you probably know that I'm not a freelance writer myself --- but I wish I were one. However, as you can see I can write for myself but definitely not the way someone wants me to. And yet, I got a ton of writing opportunities in the past --- by way of guest blogging, SEO writing, web content, etc. and I was forced to deny all of it. :(
So what's the point?
Simple! You don't have to be a native English speaker or a best selling author to make money writing.
If you can write, then money can be made. Absolutely!
But no, that doesn't really mean that you can become a six-figure writer in few months/years just because you know how to write few sentences. It doesn't work that way at all!
The real questions are... Can you write quality content? Can you write content that meets the criteria or guidelines set by your client? Can you write error free (both grammatically and technically) content? If your answer is 'Yes' to all the above questions then you can become a successful freelance writer. Guaranteed!

But that doesn't make it easy! The problem is... finding high-paying freelance writing jobs will take time and loads of efforts, especially if you're a newbie. In fact, if you visit any of those freelance marketplaces or job sites, you can see that it's crowded with hundreds of thousands of writers/bloggers. And if you don't have an author profile or pricing that is not attractive enough then your would be clients can easily find a dozen of other writers. Another problem is, content agencies or clients on freelance sites do not pay much. Even if you meet their criteria you may not earn more than $10-$15 per 500 words (unless you are a native English speaker).
That’s how long it took him, writing blog posts almost every day, to build a big enough community to reach his Kickstarter target in 3 hours.You know what? It applies to blogging as well.
