I’ve been a freelance writer for more than 15 years, and in that time I’ve written millions of words, thousands of blog posts, and dozens of books. Either I have a window open on the side of my word processor documents, or this little G is in the corner of my WordPress post or other online and social media content pieces.
Grammarly tracks my writing as I go, giving me advice and correcting me when necessary; and that’s more often than I like. Almost all of my work for clients online and in books, reports, and white papers is self-edited, so it’s critical that I do not hear from clients unhappy with spelling, grammar, or sentence structure errors.
My high-income year, while working full time as a real estate broker yielded more than $85,000 in writing income. While I’ve become less aggressive in seeking work, my annual writing income is consistently between $40k and $60k. I do not mention this to boast, but more to stress that the cost of my Grammarly Premium annual subscription is tiny compared to the income it helps me to generate.
When I was an HVAC technician, my truck and toolbox were necessary for my trade and income. As a freelance writer, my knowledge, writing ability, and Grammarly are the tools of my business. If your writing work product is important to you, and especially if it’s the product that you sell to clients, you want to have the right tools for success.
