  1. Familiarity with different writing styles
  2. You will encounter many requests of different types, some quite normal, like book reviews and others not so normal. It is essential that you never pass on a well paying job, because you lack the necessary skills. To prevent this, or at least, reduce its likelihood, you can use the internet to help familiarize yourself with as many different styles and form of writing as you can.

  3. A professional web identity
  4. Having a professional profile can increase your chances of being hired. You may not always be online to bid for a well paying job post, however, if potential clients view your profile and see that you are well qualified to accomplish the tasks they desire, they may be motivated to send you a personal request to consider their job.

  5. Registration with a freelance host site
  6. There are many of these sites and they all serve the same basic purpose. They provide an environment, as well as payment schemes, to facilitate safe and fair interactions between freelancers and job posters. Many of these sites can be found via a simple web search.

  7. The ability to adapt

Keep up to date with trends in literature and the task that companies demand of writers. This may give you the extra edge you need to allow to to capitalize on emerging markets.

  9. Discipline
  10. Many people are attracted to the idea that they can set their own working hours, allowing them to accomplish things they could not do if they had a regular job. While this is true, it is also very easy to lose track of time so do not get too carried away.
