How to Become an Online Freelance Writer
There are many battles you may face to set up yourself as an online independent essayist. This article is here to help individuals and make their battle somewhat more simple
- Rediscover your passion for writing
Rediscover your enthusiasm for composing. A calling like internet composing is certainly for somebody who has had a style for composing. Perhaps a little lyric for the school magazine , a short paper for the school every day the adoration for penning down musings in a way that interests to others…is the main criteria required. There will come a point throughout everyday life, when each other thing around you winds up plainly sufficiently commonplace or you need that additional little salary. Independent composition is the ideal choice for you!
- Experiment with your friends & family
Friends & family can help you, be at your side when you need them most. This is the time. Make them go through, in some degree of detail, the very first thoughts that springs from your mind onto paper (or a word doc). More importantly so, if you are writing after long years of inaction. And yes, listen to every feedback they give you. They are your first readers, after all.
- Write more than 5 articles in the beginning
A good writer is most essentially a prolific one. The easiest way to give a good launch to your freelance writing career is to write a lot. Review the book that you read lately or a movie you liked. You can write about job hassles, misadventures with your boss or colleagues, a relaxed evening spent with your sweetheart or a good date that you had lately. If you have kids, you will never run out of topics to write about!
- Articles should represent your point of view and not you.
Writing an article about yourself (or others) should not sound like a private opinion. Remember, there is a difference between writing your personal diary and writing an article about yourself. Be personal but draw a line, where it is required. Similarly, if you are writing about a particular topic or a social issue, make sure there are some facts in there (Google/Wikipedia provide you with loads of them) and not just your associated thoughts.
- Practice sitting for hours with your laptop.
If you are a homemaker, finish the laundry, the dishes, the cooking, get plenty of cushions and go! This is definitely going to take time and needs peace & quiet! When a train of thoughts start flowing, it is wise to convert them to words immediately lest they be forgotten within the next few minutes. A beautiful word, a funny line, a thought-provoking quote… generally don’t come back to you by the time you grab that cookie from kitchen or have a quick chat with your next door neighbor.
