It is a mystery to me as to how I got into this world of writing. It must have begun as an infatuation to prove that I was literate enough to be able to compete with the best. This must have become an obsession with me so much so that I am constantly at the keyboard of my computer, putting ideas to words.
Yes, I am Steven William Pitts, the freelance writer who write, as I believe, coruscating and scintillating content for web sites, blogs and newsletters for those who expect to avail of my writing skills, besides writing for myself to portray my art.
The mysterious fact is, what does a freelance writer do?
That is a hard nut to crack, for there are many interpretations of it. As I have come to understand, he is a person that is not associated to any organization or company but writes a person who does so on his own free will. He may write for himself, he may write for others but it all boils down to the fact that in the present age which I refer to the digital age – most of his writing is done for others.
Why does he write for you?
He writes for you all because you want him to write. You may have your own reason for doing so. You may not like writing as it requires effort and mental power and your field is not associated with the art. So you think that it is best left up to those people whose job it is.
Well said, because if a person tries to become the master of all then the plate will always be empty. Plus writing takes away time which we could occupy it in the more essential areas of our business. It is like we have this and we do not have the other. We have to weigh between the options.
What makes a freelance writer valuable?
Not to say that a freelance writer is the only person of value, but each and every one of use have the same value on earth. The freelance writer is valuable as he saves us time. He writes content for our sites, blogs, newsletters, social media and other areas of this digital world.
This world has surely parted the ways that it once functioned. It is no longer the same. We are living in an age where technology accounts for a better part of our lives. Everything is centered around the internet which can be accessed by our computers, mobile phones and other digital devices.
This makes a site not a luxury to have but a necessity. Do not have it and see where you business lands. That is not the end of the headache. We need a blog to keep people posted of our business and also for our sites to be optimized in the various search engines. Then there are the periodical newsletters that need to be dispatched to those who have subscribed to know more about what is happening in our arena of the world.
All this needs written content which as I have already mentioned earlier takes away a considerable portion of our time. The freelance content writer helps you to get this part of what is a necessity for your digital world ready.
What to look for in a freelance writer?
I know it is difficult to judge a book by it cover as what Shakespeare said in “Merchants of Venice” “All that glitters is not gold as gilded tombs have worms enfold”. This is a true. So it is with a freelance writer as well. Always read through his blog to get an understanding of the quality under which he writes. See if his work is creative and not plagiarized from other sources. Check for his grammatical skills and his variation in the language.
Do not get caught up by his rhetoric of speech as those who speak more actually do not deliver. Do not try to hire the penny worth man as he does bulk work to sustain himself so you can imagine the quality of his work.
When you hire a freelance writer do not try to save on money as he may be cheap to you and will save you much? That saving of much will only cost you much in the future as well.
It is a good thing also to have a line of communication open with the freelance writer. Praise him for his good results but and the same time tell him where he needs to improve. He will be happy to have his client as a critic. I would in that case.
Do not delay in giving feed backs as in a later stage it may cause
