Freelance writing means that you do not have a permanent boss or a regular job. You do not have to work on specific hours or show at the workplace on assigned hours. You have the liberty to work on tasks that suit your preferences. This is easier for some because they can work according to their own liking and schedule. They prefer to quit on a regular job and start their freelancing career, as it will save them the manual effort and cost of travelling to a new location every day and working with a boss to their shoulder.
