Freelance writing, cont.
First of all, thank you for the responses to my question of last week, particularly to J for understanding my dilemma and providing much helpful input, really appreciated.
I am not really understanding how things work in Belgium. Since it appears to be extremely costly to set up as a freelancer, and I have no intention of working in the black, and a contract job is not coming in, how does one get things rolling? It seems to stay legal I would have to be a freelancer to even randomly send pieces I write to magazines etc in the off chance that they use one of them? It seems very discouraging and anti-entrepreneurial. Or is occasional income, like a magazine sell or something, perfectly legal? Or am I doomed to earning nothing until I get a contract job, which as I said earlier, isn't happening too fast?
