Profound knowledge of English grammar and stylistics is not a guarantee of successful freelance writing. People may have good knowledge in different spheres of human life, but not all of them can use this knowledge in writing. The main purpose of this post is to try to help you to understand how to use your knowledge and skills in professional development. Each successful freelance writer has his/her secrets and I tried to get to know some of them. Here is a list of quotes from professiaonl writers on how to become a successful freelance writer.
“Writing an essay of any length I always try to focus on the topic. It’s easy today to watch 1-2 videos on a theme online and to read a couple of articles on the topic. It helps me remain in the stream and to write down the information easier and faster” – John D.
“Writing an essay, I never think about how to impress the audience, I am really interested in expressing my thoughts and making content outstanding” – Kate R.
“My recommendation is simple. Never skip from one activity to another one. What I mean is that writing any type of work you must complete it before getting down to writing another essay. You may be really confused if you try to write two or more essays simultaneously”- Peter J.
“Never take job, which does not bring you satisfaction. What I want to say is that working as a professional writer I prefer to choose two types of works, either those which interest me in the topic, or the ones which are attractive in price. Job must bring satisfaction and the type of satisfaction, either financial or spiritual is your choice.” – Heidi T.
“Writing is not a job, it’s a style of your life. If you can live while writing you are sure to succeed in freelance job. Writers are creative people and they should not be limited by the office walls. You must adore writing and if you do it, you are sure to become a successful writer.” – Lynda P.
Here are the thoughts of the professional freelance writers about profession. As for me, I totally agree with them. However, I need to add that the beginners in the freelance writing career need some additional time management pieces of advice. It is really difficult to start writing at home when no one imposes you and when you have an extended deadline. Do your best to schedule your time and succeed! Good luck.
