To be a good freelance writer you must need to learn the basics of grammar, punctuation, spelling, subject and verb agreement and the like.

Those things are a given if you really want to pursue a career as a writer on various freelance subjects, but there are things that separate the ordinary writers from the great ones. The great writers and authors of our day have the x factor. They have something is them that makes them click.

Guest writer, Elizabeth Terry has studied and research freelance writing for countless hours and has found that there are important tips that every writer, who is freelancing, must learn so that they can be great.


1. Learn to be Creative and think outside the Box 

If you want to be known around the world as an amazing writer (freelancer or author), you have to be creative and be able to think outside the box. If you want to succeed in your writing, you have to be different in a sense that you should learn how to make your writing unique. A lot of freelancing writers have a hard time thinking of creative ideas, they key is to let go of your worries and let the ideas come to you.  That is the start of creative writing.

2. Be Passionate at what you Do  

Every writer who dreams of making it big as a freelance columnist or becoming a best-selling author must be passionate with his work. He must like what he is doing and must not think of it as work but rather as a hobby. If he does that, he will be able to write better articles and be able to have more energy to write amazing works.

3. Think about your Audience

When you try to write about something, it is important to think about who your audience are. It is important to have your audience in mind when you are write an article or a story. You have to think about how your audience will be able to relate to your writing. Your audience is important if you want to succeed as a freelance writer.

4. Never Give Up

Being a writer (especially someone who is freelancing and not in a paid job) is filled with ups and downs. Sometimes people will like your work and sometimes people will criticize it and say negative things about you and your writing. It is important for any writer to learn to be tough and to roll with the punches as they say. It is important to never give up on your dreams and goals in life. It is important to not let other people put you down. It is also important to stand up when you fall and to continue to write.

5. Dream Big

If you want to become great at what you do, you have to dream big. A wise man once said to me that it is alright to dream big and I asked why? He said, it is because it is free to dream, if you want to dream, why not dream big.

Elizabeth appreciates that lesson and tries to apply it to her own freelance writing. To all freelance writers who want to succeed, it is important to dream big and have faith in what you do.

Those are the 5 important tips that every writer must learn if he wants to be successful. It is important for any writer to learn those important tips and reach for his dreams in life.
