Advice on Writing

advice lettering text on black background

For people reading this, I want to explain my writing ground and experience and, in part, writing advice for any people interested in writing as a career as a copywriter, magazine writer, authorship and other writing forms relevant to the industry. 

I began writing seriously from 2014 to 2018 at the University of Hull, where I completed my Politics and International Relations Degree; during that period, I learned critical thinking skills, research skills and independence. 


I recommend developing critical thinking and independent learning skills if you wish to be a writer, either a freelancer, within employment, or to build your writing craft. 

If you are writing for yourself, my advice is to learn to unlearn bad habits you may have learned in certain forms of employment, particularly from your high school times. 

This is because certain environments train you to be an employee meant to perform a task or a simple factory worker. Successful writers require imagination, adaptability, creativity, resilience, and independence, which are helpful in specific work environments but not for higher skills.

Writing Background

My professional writing experience started in 2020. I got my first experience working as a Social Media Writer creating content for social media for brands related to cosmetics; this experience provided me with an opening to learn about content creation and digital marketing. 

As writers, your bread-and-butter will typically be online magazines, working as a ghost copywriter and possibly writing for professional journals such as medicine, human resources, UX design thinking or other writing opportunities. 

Social media is essential to understand the critical component to be successful with social media; it is to be social is why those apps exist, so I recommend you create four posts per day that are social content and business-related posts. 

Try to identify what content is most useful for yourselves if you wish to be a social media digital marketer then; by creating a solid following on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, or other relevant platforms will be essential to demonstrating you have practical experience and skills in developing a substantial following. 

It is also essential to remember the needs and requirements of the organisation you are looking to work for because your content strategy may not be a good fit for their organisation. 

Furthermore, ensure all your content is something you will not mind your mother seeing

My other writing experiences are Academic Writing, Search Engine Optimisation Writing, UX design writing, entertainment writing, political writing, game writing, game guides writing, Blog Writing and a host of other writing experiences.

If you wish to review my experience, I shall leave the link to my LinkedIn account, which does contain some portfolio samples as well; as portfolio samples can be found on my WIXs portfolio page so that you can see I know what I’m talking about and you can learn from my experiences.

Watching and learning from other people’s lives is a great way to learn. 

It’s essential to research clients and make sure a message and emails have excellent grammar because you will be judged first and foremost on your writing abilities. 

Excuses will not cut it because clients are not your mum, dad or manager; you are an independent contractor; you are expected to be professional in all your communications unless you have built a strong rapport between yourselves, the client or your point of contact. 

Business is about results and delivering the services that you have promised I myself have delivered all of my written work on time and in a professional manner I have made one mistake, which is responding to a client when running on a treadmill by text. 


Naturally, writing on a treadmill does not guarantee the best-written message, so to avoid this happening again, I respond to all my messages using Gmail and a grammatical checker. 

This was a simple mistake I made when I started working freelance try avoiding small stupid mistakes; this will be great advice on writing for yourselves and others.

Online Resources For Free Writers

A great place to start is to use the Google Search Engine; if you get any information from Google, check multiple sources such as the news, well-known blogs, and other references that collaborate with anything you write. 

YouTube is another great resource because content creators list the sources in their video descriptions, which you can use to create original content. 

Furthermore, if you are looking for suitable research articles or other forms of content, JSTOR is a digital library founded in 1994. 

Originally containing digitised back issues of academic journals, it now encompasses books, other primary sources, and current issues of journals in the humanities and social sciences. 

It provides full-text searches of almost 2,000 journals. The first 100 articles and journals are free; after this, you must pay a subscription; here is the link to the website

This resource is fantastic if you are writing work that needs to be of academic quality but still keep your words accessible to the general public so that you create quality work that matches the client’s needs and the readership’s needs. 

It’s essential to write for the needs of the client and the audience, not for your enjoyment or how you think it needs to be done unless the client asks; never give unsolicited advice to anybody. 

Naturally, books and audiobooks are fantastic resource tools if you are working for a client or organisation over the years and doing online learning and reading on the topic. 

This conversely improves your writing and abilities to write different forms of the role that content for various websites.

For people reading this, please ask any questions, and if anybody is interested in my writing services, please feel free to contact me.

Freelance Writing and Digital Marketing an Beginners Guide Kindle Edition

person writing on notebook

This book is aimed at people wishing to enter the Digital Marketing and Freelance Writing workspace.

This book contains information on publishing websites that hire freelance writers and how inspiring Digital Marketers and people wanting to break into different writing niches and get their start in this competitive sector.

Being a successful writer and freelancer is not just a skill set but also a lifestyle and commitment. In certain professions like history, you can spend 30 years not being involved in that skill set and still be able to return to that profession and meet the job requirements.

In contrast, niches like tech and copywriting and their relation to search engine optimisation, product, and new methods of marketing and selling products and services require Digital Marketers and writers to maintain up-to-date information on current trends.

Again if you wish to embark on a career as a freelance writer, please be aware there is a learning curve.

As I write this book, I am bringing together my experience in the Freelance Writing and Digital Marketing industry, which I experienced from November 2020 to March 2023.

To develop your skills, it will take six months and two years to prove yourself, build up experience with clients, and expand your portfolio of work.

This book aims to provide people wishing to become Freelance Writers, writers and Digital Marketers a blueprint for success in their first few years of entering this industry.

The first step is to choose success by putting some time each day into developing the newly selected skill set that you wish to build but remember that reading is a form of learning but only by doing the work can you truly grow as an individual.

Quotation “It is only when you take responsibility for your life that you discover how powerful you truly are.” Allanah Hunt

Quotation “When you think everything is someone else’s fault, you will suffer a lot. When you realize that everything springs only from yourself, you will learn both peace and joy.” Dalai LamaQuotation

“The moment you take responsibility for everything in your life is the moment you can change anything in your life.” Hal Elrod
