I can freelance as a technical writer.
Write now I am working as a technical writer in one of the biggest company in Nepal. Up to now I have actively participated in 3 SRS and 1 functional specification.

What is an SRS and a functional specification? I'm a complete newbie to the technical writing field and the writing field in general.

Also, is it common to freelance in America or is it more of a rarity?

SRS stands for the software requirement specification, this document is programmers guide used during software development. FunSpec is also similar thing. Websites usually has only FunSpec.

About Freelancing I am also thinking of doing it, but how? I have no clue.
Any help?
