Being a freelance writer is a great job and it gives you a lot of flexibility. It pays greats but in order to make a career out of it you need to be the best possible writer you can be and that can be achieved by a couple easy steps: write what you know, write in English format and follow all instructions.
One of the key things that you must do is write about what you know. People produce their best work when they write about something their passionate about. Researched work is never as good as when you write about something you know. When you write about something you know you can elaborate more and it makes your work better.
When you’re a freelance writer it doesn’t mean you get to write how you want to write. You need to always keep in mind that you are writing for people to use these pieces in public and it need to be clean cut writing. The material doesn’t have to be but the format of the article does.
The most important thing to do when being a freelance writer is to follow the instructions set out by the publisher. They are not going to pay to write when you completely ignoring the few rules they set out. If you follow the keywords and instructions they set out for you, the article will nearly write itself.
Being a freelance writer is easy but being a good freelance writer will take some practice but in the end it will all pay off. It’s not hard to be the best writer you can be and you will end up thanking yourself later.
