Work From Home Freelance Writing: What Do You Need To Get Started?

Another common question that many people have when they start thinking about working from home as a freelance writer is what they need in order to get started in this cool work from home job.

Here is a list of things you should have (at a minimum) to begin.
(1) Internet access
(2) Computing equipment (laptop, pc, mac, tablet, etc)
(3) Word Processing Software
(4) Free Time

I honestly started out with a cell phone and a laptop. I tethered my laptop to my cell and I was off and away.  I don't know if I necessarily recommend this, but it worked. If you don't own the things above, you can still make money writing online.  Working from home doesn't have to mean that you're actually at home.  We can take a bit of poetic license here, especially considering that we are writers.

If your local library allows you to access the web on their computers, reserve one for an hour and write a couple articles each day on a content site.

In a couple month's time you may be able to save up to buy a laptop with the money you made writing online at your local library.

Working From Home As A Freelancer Can Be So Fulfilling

This recession has caused a lot of people to reexamine the way they see the world.  Why wish for a job you wouldn't like anyway?  Instead of putting out application after application only to be dismayed when nothing comes your way, MAKE your own job!  Figure out what your skills are and how to best market them.  You can work from home and make a living.  If I'm doing it, you can do it too.
