There is a classic image of a freelance writer. He or she has a broad imagination, works in some “artful mess” or creates masterpieces in a dawn, or lying on the green grass under the tree in a city park. Mostly nothing of this is true.

If you want to earn enough as a freelance academic writer, you will have to master setting boundaries. Otherwise, you will work as a full-timer and earn as if it is just a hobby.

Writers drink. Hemingway preferred Mojito and Daiquiri and claimed that one should write drunk, but edit sober. Charles Bukowski promoted an idea of a “wine-beer” diet. Francis Scott Fitzgerald was fond of gin, and Edgar Allan Poe couldn’t restrain himself from absinthe.

Stage 1: I Love My Work At this stage, you tell the stories about your favorite clients, unexpected bonuses ..

But there are no boundaries for us if we have decided to unveil the truth about something for our readers! Learn about the history of ghostwriting and the opportunities it gives to the modern writers. Alexandre Dumas and ..
