How should I start as a freelance writer?
I am a shy, introvert person. I have little qualities beyond writing. I prefer indoors life so I am looking for some job to do from home, something creative. I hate routine... I think I write nice stuff, miniatures are my specialty... short pieces of poetry, prose sketches, rhymed lines... English is not my native language but I understand and use it quite well... I think... Could I use my writing skills somehow, in a simple way for a beginner? How should I start? Any advice would help. Thank you.

You could get in touch with a publisher, work on editing pieces of writing, see where you go from there.
