What kind of writer is it when you can write what ever, and how do I become one?
I am very interested in writing. A lot of the things I write are said to be inspiring. I love to write anything like poems, songs, stories, my personal views, etc. The only problem is that I CANNOT be stuck writing something im told to write about like most writers jobs are. Is there such thing as a freelance writer, or creative writer, and how do I become one? How do I gain income with it?

To do that just write a book then send it to a publisher, the publisher will make copies of your book if they like it and you will get paid. Though you should probably consult someone before writing the book because I'm not entirely sure.
