As of March 2016, approximately 15.3 million people in the U.S. designated their status as "self employed." according the the Bureau of Labor Statistics: an increase of roughly 1 million since May 2014. 53 million individuals have reported doing freelance work (full time or on the side) in the US representing 34% of the workforce. And finally, individuals who freelance are highly productive, contributing an estimated $715 billion in earnings to the US economy.

It's not a mystery: You have to know the publication you're pitching and you must be original.
And that means learning all about your subject, not just the smattering of free material you happen to find on the open web.

And if your subject has been covered, you need to add to the conversation with your own angle. Your piece must offer something new.
So do what every top writer does. Start with research. Learn what's out there. Become an expert. Know more than your editor knows.
