As you know, we constantly work to make ResearchWritingCenter.com — the best freelance writing community on the web.
I haven’t spoiled you with some fresh updates in a while, so let’s take a closer look at what’s coming up within the next couple of weeks!
Flexible Fine Schedule
We know that being a freelance writer is quite challenging. And it’s especially dissatisfying to be fined for your work and receive less than the amount you originally signed up for. We understand this and that’s why we’re trying to balance the bonuses and penalties, which are active within our system.
One of these steps will be taken within the next couple of weeks. By the end of the month you can expect some of the internal fines/bonuses to be updated (expect a note from us through the Messaging system when that happens). Read the rest of this entry »

Hard Lessons Part One
Freelance writing can be a tough enterprise – not for the faint of heart, in other words. Especially for those freelance writers just starting out, the number of mistakes will typically far outweigh the numbers of successes. For freelance writers, there are a few mistakes that are very important to make, if for no other reason than they grow you as a professional.
One the most important mistakes that a freelance writer should make is to have at least one experience of significantly undercharging for an assignment and underestimating the amount of time it will take to complete that assignment. Typically, this happens in the early stages of your freelance writing career.
You are so excited to get a job that you agree to less than viable terms. There are a cluster of important mistakes associated with undercharging that will be beneficial to the freelance writer in the long term, although in the short term they will be exceedingly painful and stressful.
The freelance writer who undercharges quickly learns that working for one dollar an hour is incredibly demoralizing. By underestimating the amount of time necessary to complete the assignment, the freelance writer struggles to complete it on time, and in some cases will end up being paid for only half the amount of work he or she does, because at the final tally it takes him or her over fifty per cent longer to complete the assignment than anticipated. So why would such an experience be useful? Why should the freelance writer make such a costly mistake?
Number One: Undercharging teaches the freelance writer, in no uncertain terms, the value of his or her time, talent and expertise. The only way to learn what you are truly worth as a freelance writer is to have it sorely tested.
Number Two: Undercharging teaches the freelance writer what he or she can do in incredibly difficult circumstances. While this experience feels less than ideal while it is happening, after undercharging and losing a tremendous amount of money, the freelance writer now has had his or her mettle tested, and gains several benefits.
He or she now knows the exact amount of money he or she must be paid on an hourly basis in order to turn a profit in his or her business. He or she also knows exactly how efficient he or she can be. The drive to complete the undercharged assignment and still make money on it has indirectly taught the freelance writer how to maximize his or her efficiency.
