I wasn’t even technically a freelance writer then; I was definitely not looking for clients but, as a blogger struggling to earn money and make ends meet, I had to pay attention when someone offered me $100 per article.
I’d have accepted $30 – $40 per article then, but $100? I’m in!
This is one question that bothers many freelance writers, and you just can’t seem to find an answer to it anywhere.
Stop Pitching Clients’ student, Clement Lim recently asked me 4 questions aimed at finding a real answer to this question, and I have decided to publish my answers here so that Writers in Charge readers can benefit.
In my previous article (about punctuation) I stressed the importance of making your text flow smoothly. Avoid “stalling” your reader. If he finds your article difficult to follow, he might give up altogether in boredom or frustration.
If you find it difficult to work out how to punctuate your sentence then it is probably too long. Split it into two or more shorter sentences and avoid confusing and alienating your readers.
