My Freelance Writing “Career” update


I have good news, I submitted another article and it got accepted!! So since I started I have now 3 articles that I have submitted and all 3 have been accepted. I know I should be submitting more but truthfully they have still not changed my rating’s so most articles are on subjects I have NO CLUE on how to start.

I have passed on a few articles that I was very interested but I am still second guessing myself. I know that my spelling, grammar is not at the level that I want it to be. I know it is better then when I first started on here. I take my time and after I am done I usually review my piece to see if it “flows”. With these paid articles once I hit the submit button I can not go back and rewrite it.

I have some books from college from my english classes. I am starting to read them slowly and hopefully that will help me with my spelling and grammar. If any of you have any suggestions of books that might help me better my writing skills I am ALL EARS.

To help me gain more confidence in submitting articles regarding review movies, products, etc… I will be posting a bit more reviews of shows, apps, products that I use. I know this is a blog of creative writing but I’m sure trying to do an article that reviews a product WITHOUT your opinion is HARD. The few reviews that I have posted on here have my opinion and emotions.

The type of clients that want these reviews what an unbiased article with only factual information. So for the ones out there that do those type of writing, or if you have any suggestions on the post in needing improvement. PLEASE let me know.

Slowly I want to go and do more articles, Hubby my mom and my hubbies best friend are pushing me to try and get an actual “writing” job… I don’t think I can do that since I A. Do not have any type of EDUCATIONAL background and B I have NO EXPERIENCE other then this blog and the freelance work I have done.

Plus I don’t know how I would make a resume stating that??? I mean I imagine to be a writer in any industry you will need some type of published paid work that you can use as reference. I don’t know if the pieces I do for freelance counts. Basically when I sign up I agree that I am “selling” my piece to the client so I don’t have any “rights”. the client most likely will not credit me when they use the piece….

If any one has any type of thoughts,, suggestions or advice please comment below or email me at lkhanfictionwriter  gmail.com

Until Next Time,

  1. Her blog is really good. I just started following her and she is a freelance writer and gives lots of tips.
    You may want to give it a glance. There are several posts on just how to get started, resources, things like that.
    One does talk about the “resume” of a freelance writer that you talked about and they are called clips..I believe..look into it if you want..plus she is funny.
