Are you Working Late Hours as a Freelance Writer?
Yesterday I wrote a post about working on the weekends. Today, I want to talk about working late hours as a freelance writer. This is something that many of my freelance writing friends do. That being said, I am not the type to work into the wee hours of the morning. Instead, I prefer to rise early because this better fits my schedule.
Speaking of schedules, yours should determine when you work as a freelance writer. For instance, if you do not have a lot of time in the morning, for whatever reason, there is a good chance that the nighttime will be the best time to work. Take for instance somebody who has children. This person may spend their morning getting their kids off to school, preparing meals, etc. But when the nighttime rolls around, and the kids are in bed, things begin to die down. It is at this time that getting to work makes the most sense.
As long as you are on top of your game there is nothing wrong with working late hours. For me, this would not be a good idea. I always feel better in the morning, and only like to work on freelance writing projects when I am energized and have a perfectly clear mind. By the time 9 or 10 pm hits my brain is beginning to shut down for the most part. This doesnâ€™t mean that I never work late hours, but I do try to avoid it when possible.
One of the biggest benefits of working as a freelance writer is that you can set your own schedule. If working in the morning and/or afternoon doesnâ€™t suit you, there is a good chance that you can get things done after the sun goes down. Once you get on a schedule, no matter what it may be, you will be better about the progress you are making as a freelance writer.Â
