But here also, my fear of writing correct doesn’t spare me. With time, the fear started to diminish and now it’s been 10 years of my writing career. I am glad that my efforts paid me well.
As per my experience, I like to share some very important but simple tips to the aspirant writers that help you in raising your writing career with a fast pace. Just keep these tips in your mind and start writing as per the flow.
Passion for writing
You must have a passion for writing in full swing to pursue it as your career. Lack of passion fills boredom in your life and you will end up hating the profession so, you should have that flame in you to keep the writing going. To keep that flame burning, you must read more whether it’s fiction or non-fiction article. Read newsletters to check the different writing style. And whenever, you feel flushed, take a break, embrace the nature, and make your thoughts flow like the wind and immediately write it somewhere.
2. Keep the learning flame burning
Learning is the basic necessity for any career. Keep your learning spirit on until you write flawlessly and that’s obviously a very much tedious task to achieve. As the requirement to make a good write-up is entirely different for different organizations. You must have that ability to mold your writing style as per the need of a particular firm. To excel in your career, a writer must have versatility in their writing. More you learn better will be your writing.
Good Communication Skills
Now, you have a passion that doesn’t mean you will get the freelance writing projects. You must have the good convincing power in you that assist you in grabbing the projects. So, improve the communication skills to explain better about your capabilities and expertise. The way you approach the clients should be impressive enough to attract the projects.
Self Discipline and Punctuality
To get the good and maximum writing projects, you should have self-discipline and punctuality in delivering the write-ups. Few errors in the write-up can be neglected if you accomplish the assigned work on time. That doesn’t mean you can write anything, just a few errors related to the format or style of the article. By adopting this in your professional life, you can get quality ratings on your profile that eventually build trust. If you will be able to build the trust by showing good professionalism then it may be possible you get more projects from the same clients.
As the online world is blooming, you should also have some best work on the online media. This will help you in connecting with the clients and enticing good freelance writing projects. Post your article on a blog website and promote the same through social media like Facebook, Twitter and more. More likes and share you get on your blog, attract the visitors. A good blog will help you in enhancing your profile.
When you have an appropriate number of excellent articles and a good working experience then prepare a well-written portfolio for yourself. Describe all your expertise, experience, and capacity in the form of short description and attach some of the well-written articles. Through this, client’s trust will increase and they will prefer you over the other writers. You can refer the portfolio of other writers and try to make your profile more tempting.
