One of the easiest ways to start landing freelance writing jobs quick is on Upwork. It's the largest site for freelancers on the web, with thousands of new writing gigs listed daily.
Laura Pennington, a six-figure freelance writer, started her career on the site in 2012, and within 18 months built a six-figure freelance writing career. It's one of the reasons I teamed up with her to offer the New Freelance Writer's Get Started Pack; it's a two-course bundle -- this course and hers on landing writing gigs on Upwork, or Killing It on Upwork!" as she calls it (and rightly so!).
She can teach you to do the same.
A $50,000 Editing Contract
Laura once landed a $50,000 editing contract there, and assignments where she gets retainers for as much as $25,000 (yeah, no kidding!). She's the "Queen of Upwork," in my opinion. You can read my review of her course here.

My Biggest Regret about Freelancing
I've been freelancing in one form or another since 1993, and I can truly say that my biggest regret about stepping out on my own full-time is that I didn't do it sooner (like, right out of college).
Here's wishing you the same "regret." :)
