About

I’m a freelance writer based out of Southern California. Being a full-time freelancer is amazing, but it’s also difficult. There’s no employee manual or rule book for starting out on this journey, and amid the plethora of books and blogs, there’s a lot of terrible information. Sorting out the good advice from the bad and learning the ropes of the freelance industry can be overwhelming, so overwhelming that some people quit their freelance dreams before they ever had a chance of succeeding.

Through this blog and my series of books, A Freelance Writer’s Guide To, I want to help freelancers avoid the pitfalls, get on the right path, and learn the skills, tools, and methodologies that can help them jump on the fast track to success.

If you’re a freelancer looking for information, please feel free to check out the blog. You can also click on the Publications tab to see the books that are already available in the ongoing A Freelance Writer’s Guide To series.

    Hello Courtney, how ironic it is to read about your new revelations about ghost writing just as I have found the perfect voice for my story. I don’t have the funds or the resources to bring the intimate and an amazing story to life on the big screen however I think it could have several layers of lives through other channels. Perhaps it could be reborn digitally and visually one day if it had a chance to be shared. I beseech you to accept my invitation on elance before my whimsical ADHD take other paths.

      Hi Steve,
      Thanks for your comment! I should probably explain. It’s not that I dislike ghostwriting. For certain genres and stories, it makes sense, and there is a sense of liberation in being able to write without putting my name on it for sure.

      However, it is a very strange sensation, as well, knowing that you’re creating this story and then giving it away. Writers, as I’m sure you know, get very attached to their work at times, particularly where characters are involved, and it’s an odd thing and a sometimes sad thing to create a work and then hand it off.

      I’d be happy to speak with you about projects, though, shoot me a message on Elance or email content@courtneyherzwrites.com. 🙂

      Thanks again for the comment. Cheers!
