Have you ever read submission guidelines where you see the phrase, “no simultaneous submissions?” Freelance writers dread that phrase for many reasons. Under most circumstances, you’ll see it when markets have long response times. When this happens, it gives the editors exclusivity when considering your work. They know no one else is reading it, or that there’s a chance it may be published elsewhere.
It sounds simple at its core. Do you have writing work? Are you working as a freelance writer full-time? Answering these questions determines how you’ll fill your time.

If so, having life writing or autobiographical skills is your first step in those directions. Instead of writing about why you believe your trip was the best, instead, you’ll be inspiring your readers with your stories.
