How to Become a Good Freelance Writer: A Helpful Tutorial


Freelancing is a job opportunity for someone who wants to spend the maximum amount of time at home with his or her family. In most cases, the job does not require regular hours, so a freelancer is able to organize his or her time the way he or she likes it. Moreover, there is no necessity to travel to work, and therefore the time that is saved from it can be dedicated either to work or to household chores.

If you are lured into taking a freelancing job as a writer, here are some tips to help you:

  • Delve into every detail.
  • It is absolutely necessary to be extra careful with grammar, spelling, punctuation, and style to produce high quality texts. Even brilliant ideas will lose their appeals if they are not expressed in the right ways.

  • Use the Internet to search for ideas.
  • Make it a rule to research every topic you have to write about for no longer than 30 min. This period of time is enough to trace the general trend of ideas, but not enough to absorb them. As a result, you will be able to write about something you understand quite well using your own words and ideas.

  • Move on gradually.
  • Do not hurry to write long texts unless you are sure you will be able to do the job perfectly and have more than enough experience in the sphere. Start your career by writing small blogs, and gradually move on to course papers and dissertations.

  • Get self-organized.
  • As a freelance job is an independent one, you will have to answer to the only person who is able to make you work – yourself. Make it a rule to stick to the deadlines or even complete the tasks earlier.

  • Stick to the client’s requirements.
  • Study the specifications very carefully both before writing the text and after it is written. It is a well-known fact that most articles get rejected not because of the content, but because they fail to meet the guidelines.

  • Appreciate any suggestions from professional editors.
  • When you get feedback, concentrate not on the positive sides, but rather on the negative ones. These will help you improve your writing in the future.

  • Read writing guidelines.
  • Freelance writing jobs presuppose that the writers improve themselves constantly through the nonstop learning of making the texts they produce perfect in terms of form and content.

Though the job of a freelance writer seems easy at first, it requires as much dedication and self-discipline as any other job.
