Freelance Writing Jobs: How To Work From Home Effectively

Do you like the idea of working from home in your bathrobe and fuzzy slippers? If so, you might like the idea of freelancers. Freelancers only have to leave the house to do things like get more computer paper, pens, and printer ink to print out their documents and proofread them. You’ll also want some excellent grammar guides—ones that you know are good based upon reading lots of reviews—because you do not want to learn the wrong way.

The Importance of Perfect English and Grammar

Know this, if you think freelancing is a FAST way to make money, then you do not know much about high quality writing. The good jobs only pay for perfect English with perfect grammar. And yes, the client will have this paper read by hired editors who will point out to them all the grammar mistakes.

Second, the client does not have to pay you until the document is read, reread, proofread and approved

Also, know this—you do not get paid just because you handed something in. I have been waiting a month and a half to get paid for a longer project I handed it, because I did it well, I delivered more than was what expected, which is par for the course, and now I’m waiting on the client to have time to read it. So if you’re looking for a quick pay form of employment—this is not the way to go.

Writing, Good Writing, Takes Time

Also remember good, quality writing takes time. Good jobs that pay well are people looking to have long research papers written—but these are typically students on student budgets and now, you will have to go and research the paper, learn the subject area enough to talk about it in an educated matter, to make the paper sound like it was written by a writer of this education and caliber, proofread it eighteen times for grammar errors, print it out several times to read it for errors, make sure it is documented correctly, write a perfect works cited page—and now, you have to decide whether you charged the client enough money for all of this, right?

If English is Not Your Fist Language, You Need to Make Sure It’s Perfect English

A new trend in freelancing is to ask for native American speakers.
