Is freelance writing a viable field right now?

Hi!  I am new to this group and so relieved that you are here! Recently I decided to become a freelance writer. I have just begun. In fact, I am such a beginner that I have yet to be paid. 

 

I have a girlfriend in journalism who let me know that she feels that trying to break into freelance writing at this time is not a good idea. she said that many editors who normally enjoy working with new comers are not willing to take the risk right now, and that many established writers are  simply not getting paid.

 

May I ask what your experiences and thoughts are?

 

Thank you!
