Freelance Writing?

#1

I noticed scouring the forums that a number of you are freelance writers. I had never really considered writing professionally until recently (thanks to my Mum, suggesting I have some latent talent).

I’m currently doing some soul searching right now but this Wizard needs to make some coin! In the past two weeks the most consistent thing I’ve done is write so I’m considering giving it a go.

I just found this site that has somewhat mixed reviews called Writers Work. Anyone heard of it? By the looks of their marketing it seems supportive for someone just starting in the field.

Any tips suggested are greatly appreciated.

First time I ever hear about this website but I’d recommend you to start your work as a freelance copywriter or to pick up translations if you feel strong enough (most employers test your skills before signing a contract). I had my fair share of working for different agencies and usually you can make some money for living.

It’s tedious sometimes and tough but it contributes to your writing skills immensely as you need to learn how to be concise in your message and weigh it appropriately.
