What you need to know about freelance writing jobs

  •  Some freelance writers begin by completing a few projects which often start off as part-time jobs. As they continue working and see their writing potential grow so is their desire to reach more clients. They begin to adopt writing as their full time career. This a great lesson to all those people who think that freelancing is not good enough for a graduate or working professional. In fact, even a highly specialized professional such as doctor or an engineer can quit their highly demanding jobs and turn to full-time freelancing for a living. A platform such as Academia Research hires fresh graduates, diploma holders, master’s graduates and PhD holders. The company usually has varying writing levels designated as General, Advanced, Senior Advanced, Premium, Elite and First Class Writing Levels.  As a writer you will advance through these levels depending on the quality of work you generate. In the sections that follow I have outlined tips on academic online writing jobs that will help you grow from one level to another.

    Enhancing your language proficiency

    No one was born understanding all the rules of grammar, punctuations, sentence construction and spellings. This is something we learn daily and perhaps we will never be able to master everything in our entire lifetime. However, the rule is to keep working towards perfection. Even the spelling and grammar checking tools developed by Microsoft or Google Scholar have their own flaws and that‘s why language and programming experts re spending days and nights trying to make them, better. I believe that a writer should be a good reader in order to improve his or her writing standards. If you intend to develop your writing potential, keep reading articles on language improvements. In addition, you can sign up for language proficiency classes so that you can get to know the on-going developments in the English language.

    Keep writing always

    I am writer and I remember when I began writing ten years ago, I never thought I could improve. Working as underwriter to a friend who was running a blog at the time, my work was full of mistakes and incoherencies.  My secret was to keep going no matter how tough the going became. I kept writing and asking other people to proofread my work. I embraced their advices and learned to do better. The most important lesson that I learned during my days of struggle was self correction.  Even now, I make sure that what I’m writing today is better than what I did yesterday. Remember, through writing always, you will understand your voice as well as the patterns of mistakes in your work and at the end you will be able to make the necessary changes.

    Invest in writing tools

    We are not perfect in any way and as such we are prone to making mistakes. So, we need help and correction. In most research papers, you will need to search and download materials online. To avoid mistakes such as plagiarism, misspellings, improper punctuations and poor grammar usage, it is good to invest some cash in plagiarism checker and grammarly tools. Such tools will help you identify and correct mistakes in your writings.
