The existence of text soho freelance writers
I'm too tired, but I can't fall asleep
The existence of text soho freelance writers is also due to the rapid development of the Internet, which provides conditions for text soho, and also enables the current domestic freelance writers to develop rapidly. Freelance writers are just like society. There is a big gap between the rich and the poor. A Cheng, a well-known freelance writer in China, can earn more than 1 million yuan a year, and Yi Fu from Beijing is also a well-known freelance writer in the circle. It is mainly for documentary manuscripts, of course, there are also many who have a very depressed life. Almost all text SOHO have this experience:
When I first joined SOHO, there is always a sense of freshness. Facing the vast living space on the Internet, wandering in it, it can be said that "the crowd is looking for him a thousand times, and that person is in a dimly lit place."
Over time, after the interest in a new life disappears, one after another comes, it is an inexplicable free state. It's like a blind man walking into a big forest, wandering around and knowing nowhere; more like a fisherman, driving a flat boat across the vast and boundless lake, vast and boundless. At this moment, a feeling of hunger and loneliness came to my heart. So, he shouted for a long time in the endless time tunnel. Looking for similar responses and questions and answers, looking for a kind of sentimental and devotion.
Their goals and ideas for being freelance writers are different. Many freelance writers become freelance writers purely because of their personal hobbies and through hard work. For example, Li Feng, a well-known writer in Beijing, is currently a special reporter for many well-known magazines, and has done documentary special work for dozens of well-known characters, but what is puzzling is that before he became a full-time freelance writer I used to be a construction engineer in Dalian, and I like to write some poetry. Later, because of the wider circle of friends I met, I got many important clues and wrote a documentary feature. I found that I could support myself by writing the feature by myself, and Satisfied his writing desire, so far he has done many influential special articles, and has formed his own brand.
He told me that he feels that he is too tired and stressed. It is not the pressure of survival but the pressure of work. He believes that writing SOHO is not only a way of life, but also a way of working. Now there are endless editing manuscripts every month. He said that the pressure now is greater than the pressure of working in shifts, and it is more tiring than before. Now the income is more, but the time he can freely arrange is even more than before. Less, because he has reached a certain degree of popularity in writing, and some magazines are planning to ask him to be the deputy editor of the magazine. He said he didn't want to sit in class. He chose to be a freelance writer because of his hobby. Even if he was tired, he couldn't give up. He believes that being a successful freelance writer requires a keen eye, deep writing skills and super perseverance. Also, that is to establish your own brand and do something suitable for your positioning. If this is not the case, it will be difficult to follow the path of freelance writing, especially perseverance. No matter how much pressure, you can't give up.
There are those who feel the same pressure and exhaustion as successful writers like Li Feng, as well as those freelance writers who are still writing pure literature. In fact, there are still a huge number of such freelance writers. This is often the case: authors who like literature, because several submissions have been adopted by the media, they think that writing purely literary articles can support themselves, so they start themselves Freelance writer.
In fact, in the current environment, it is too difficult to live by writing literary articles. Many media magazines basically don’t use literary articles. Even if they are used, the remuneration is terribly low. In a domestic magazine in Wuhan, where the remuneration is relatively high, I published a documentary. The remuneration for a special manuscript is around 1,000 yuan, but for a poem published in this magazine, the remuneration is 20 yuan, and it will be sent out in 3 months. It is because of this situation that this type of freelance writer is under tremendous pressure to survive.
I know a freelance writer. The revised version of the novel he wrote two years ago was broadcast on CCTV, and it caused a huge response. But for this novel, he himself only received 3,000 yuan in remuneration. The reason was that a book company was optimistic about his novel at the time. Because of the pressure of survival, he took the novel he wrote with all his hard work for a low 3,000 yuan. The price is sold out. Now he is still writing hard. He says that he is a connotative copywriter, not a commercial copywriter. This is his life pursuit. Now, he is still living a poor life, because of his hobby of literature, he is working hard and continuing to adhere to his ideals, he said: "Too tired, but can't fall asleep"
It seems that doing writing soho requires courage to bear the pressure of survival and work. When you decide to do writing soho, you must ask yourself: "Give you a pen, can you really support yourself?"
