Freelance Writing Suggestions: Improving Your Skills

If you are a freelance writer and you want to improve your skills are a handful things that you can do.

  • The first thing you can do is sign up for a writing class. Just because you are an experienced writer does not mean that you cannot benefit from additional writing classes. You might be able to sign up for a local writing class in your nearby community college, or even sign up for a writing class offer through your library. If there are no classes nearby you might be able to take one online. The more you practice your skills and improve your writing, the better off you'll be.
  • You can read. The more you read the better your writing will be. And make sure you read a wide range of things. Do not limit yourself to just business textbooks or to just fiction. Cover everything. Try and read one new book each week from a different genre so that you can familiarize yourself with many different types of writing styles. You might surprise yourself to him that you will find writing an informative article takes on a creative twist thanks to all of your reading of both informative pieces and creative, fictional pieces.
  • Practice. Practice really does make perfect and the more you practice your skills the better off you'll be. If you regularly practice writing even if you do not have a job which is currently open, the better you will be. Take a little time every day to practice writing. Keep a journal or send a regular email back to your family. Right hand written notes to friends so that you can get regular practice.
  • Take quizzes. If you are working for freelance network that offers different writing quizzes, take them. You don't necessarily have to show the results. Just because you score poorly on one particular writing quiz does not mean that you didn't learn something from it. You can look up your answers and compare them to the right answers and perhaps take away something beneficial.
  • Familiarize yourself with the website. If you know that you have to submit a timesheet that will save you the awkward first job where you finish the job and then sit patiently for two weeks waiting for the money only to find out that you had to submit a timesheet before they can pay you. This will improve your skills at navigation.
