freelance writing means you're self employed for your writing job and did not attached to any principal. Anybody can be your principal as job is concern.

A broad definition of what it means to be a freelance writer is having someone who works independently and submits pieces of writing to different companies or businesses for publication. Freelance writers are paid per piece of work, which sometimes is a flat rate or can also be based on the number of words written. Freelance writing provides a great deal of flexibility and adaptability, but also requires strong motivation and dedication to achieve the final goal of publication. Many freelancers eventually become consultants for other enterprising writers, running workshops or starting their own companies. Source: http://www.msu.edu/~wrac/pw/careers/freelance.html

If one has a flair for writing, one can keep writing articles, poems, biograhies and send them to publishers of newspapers, magazines. They do publish it. Once the habit of writing isdeveloped and when your writings are published here and there you become a free-lancer. Sometimes you can even agree to write on a particular topic in serial to a paper, still without being employed and you are paid for your contribution each time when it is accepted. Are you keen on writing? There are some lovely websites which pays for writing. Please send a PM if you are keen, so that Ican introduce you to those sites. In fact I am a freelancer, publishing some writing here and there.

As from the word itslef it means writing. Through this you can earn money as you write. It is a homebase job that's why it's you who decide when you want to write. You write according to the topics that your costumers orders you and you will be paid minimum of $20 per page. It should be unique and free from gramatical errors to avoid complains and for your writings to be aprove.

Freelance writing means that when you write, you are not writing for one company for any company you want who will pay you for your articles or stories. You are not contracted to one company only. Freelance writers are usually self-employed and agree a fee for each piece of work they do.

Hi andrejuly84! Freelance writing is you are not tied down or hired exclusively with a certain company wherein you only write for them. Freelance writing is when you create articles that you can submit to any publisher of your choice. Have a nice day and take care.
