"Action is my domain." - Gandhi
Think on how things really are going for you with your writing career. Check your own progress and productivity as a writer. See where you have developed your skills. Track your own productivity as far as your portfolio of publications like articles, e-books and other writing both online and offline.
If you only write on your own time or your own dime, then you may not be much of a freelance writer. You just might be free, as in free to do as you please and that's about it.
If it's a career, then make it work for you. Don't allow yourself to come up short.
