Creative Writing as a Freelance Job


Everybody has their own set of talents that can be put to use to make some cash. Some people have a knack for pottery and sell their products online and others like to bake and thus open up their own pastry shop for example.

Another talent not given the recognition it truly deserves would be creative writing. When you tell a person that you like to write, the first thing that comes to their mind is most probably something like fiction writing. However, we all know that publishing a couple of novels won’t instantly turn a person into someone like J.K. Rowling overnight.

But wait a minute! Writing books or journals isn’t the only thing you can do with your super-awesome creative writing skills! Well, what else can you do? Freelance writing online of course! Freelance writing online is the new way creative writing talents like yourself can utilize and make an income through. Freelancing jobs online are knocking on your doorstep and you can do them in the comfort of your own home, where you can have the creative space of your choice that allows you to sour high up with your imagination and deliver great results.

Still wondering what’re the things you can do? Let me give you a ‘brief’ list of the many things you can do with that writing talent of yours.

Novel or Short Story Editing

In today’s world, where a person can self-publish their novel or turn it into an E-book, people don’t feel the need to write to agents or try to pitch for a big-shoot publishing firm anymore. So who’s going to check if there are any typos or grammar mistakes that the self-publishing writer probably missed? Look at the mirror, that’s right, it’s you. The first thing self-publishers resort to is somebody who could help them publish a polished, flawless story.

Ad Copywriting

When you write, you’re trying to get a certain point or message across. Writing ads is the same thing and of the same creative nature. You can put your creative writing skills into good use by creating interesting and fun ads for different companies.


It isn’t boring or dull when you’re writing about something you’re interested or believe in! Taking up writing opportunities from clients about specific topics that entice you and writing about them in your own style is a great way for you to make money. And at the same time, you’re writing about something you like! It would be as what American singer Marc Anthony once said, “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.”

Game Scripting

This one’s for the hardcore gamers out there! Somebody’s gotta write all that dialogue ›in the game itself, and that ‘somebody’ would be you. There are so many game developers out there looking for people who can write a script for their game, whether it’s a simple mobile game or a traditional game played on a console or a computer.

Like I mentioned before, there are so many other interesting ways you can apply your creative writing online other than the ones listed in this blog post. You’ll be surprised by how many people will want the services you provide and it is lot more than you can imagine for sure. Once you get the hang of things with the current service you provide and if you’re feeling ambitious, you can adopt another creative writing service that’ll boost the number of clients you get in a month.

Every word you type is a step closer to great satisfaction with wonderful results as well as cash in your pockets, so get started!
