Freelance Writers: Do You Have Other Goals?

I know. I know. Isn’t enough to just have freelance goals? Yes, it is. I am wondering if anyone else has other goals for their future as well.

I do.


I love nature photography, and would like to build a career around this on top of my freelance writing. I don’t want it to feel like work, though, so I wish to keep it simple. I will continue to photograph nature when I am out-and-about, and will look for venues for selling the photographs that I take.


This may be common among freelance writers. I am working on writing fiction books when I am not concentrating on freelance writing. I currently have three books of short stories in the works. I love writing these stories, and have published a couple for people to read:


The Woods

I am interested in what goals other freelance writers are working toward and what their current projects are, outside of their freelance careers.
