Practical advice based on experience

The advice provided herein is also indicative of a correct approach that should be taken when applying the mind to an enterprise that will be run solely from home. And the experience of handling new caseloads of writing work was enhanced through the correct learning and practical aptitude before working full-time at home. Whether you are still working in a full or part-time job (whether as a writer or in another trade or profession) or are currently at home without work; the next practical piece of advice on how to successfully apply for freelance work and then do it after receiving these projects is important.

Learn to love books and literary writing

Whether you have a college (or similar) degree or not, make a concerted effort to study further. Where writing is concerned, major in a program that specializes in creative writing, journalism, publishing (or any other closely-related area of work within the media industry and specifically related to writing). You also have a golden opportunity to study at a higher level in an area that is of particular interest to you. For instance, you may be an avid lover of books (in this line of work; you should be) and have an appreciation for what is known as literary writing (which is a contrarian and advanced alternative to mainstream commercial writing in general).

Golden opportunity to study further

That being said; do not believe a word that was said before on not having to study further in preparation for a career as a freelance writer. There are outlets for easily obtaining work online, but the quality of the work required and the related pay scales are minimal. Unemployed and at home, you do not need to be excluded from this golden opportunity to enhance your career prospects. Education is costly, but you can take advantage of your library and (night-time) community college classrooms in the meantime.

And the last piece of practical advice before throwing your full weight into the job application process is to practice continuously your writing. This short article provided an entry point for new freelancers with at least two important pieces of practical advice.
