Besides the determination to excel at freelance writing (and you will need lots of it to see you through the initial struggle), you will need a laptop or desktop, a good broadband connection and if possible a smartphone (to keep you connected with your clients at all times). We also assume that you know the basics of using a computer and in particular MsOffice.

9. How much income can I expect to make*?
There is no fixed amount because each writer varies in skills and the number of hours which they can put in. First few months can be hard and at times demoralizing. You may even have to start with low paying projects to get positive client reviews before some better paying clients may be willing to work with you. But if you are consistent and persistent you could easily be earning about 25000 – 30000 INR a month basis 23-25 days of work within six months of becoming a dedicated freelancer, with a scope to earn much more as you build an online reputation.
