How to Become a Freelance Writer: How to Improve Your Grammar


The most important skill for a freelance writer is understanding the English language. Most freelancers have to apply for job openings by writing a proposal. The proposal is the first glance that clients have to see your abilities. If you have issues with grammar, the client will be able to see it, immediately. If you want to be a successful freelance writer, you have to know the rules of grammar. Fortunately, if you need a refresher, there are a few places you can go.

  • Turn to Grammar Websites
  • The Internet is filled with websites that provide plenty of grammar instruction. But, before you waste your time working on skills that you already have, you should see where your weaknesses are. If you take one of your worst pieces of writing and run it through a grammar checking app, you can quickly discover your weaknesses. Then, search for tutorials and interactive practice sites. The best ones will offer explanations when you make mistakes to help you learn. You should not have to pay to use the sites.

  • Read Good Writing
  • The best way to improve your grammar is to read good writing. This does not include text messages, emails, cereal boxes, or other casual text. You should read novels, high-quality magazines and newspapers, and good content. The more familiar you become with good writing, the more prepared you will be to writing well. Keep a journal of your favorite sentences and hand-write them, so you get the mind-body connection that helps cement the style into your head.

  • Hire a Freelancer to Help You
  • If you find that you need more help, you can always turn to the freelancing website and hire yourself a grammar tutor. It does not matter if you need an hour of tutoring or you need a few weeks of help, you can find a freelancer who is a grammar expert and can help you get over your weaknesses.

  • Look at Standardized Test Questions
  • You can also work on your grammar skills by playing around with standardized test questions. There are plenty of practice tests online. Since standardized tests often have grammar questions, especially the college entrance exams, you can learn about complex grammar structure. These sites usually provide not only the questions, but the explanations and tutorials for them, too. You will see many interesting grammatical structures with test practice sites.
