Do you have a Freelance Writing Plan?

From day one of starting my freelance writing career, I have had a plan. In fact, this has been a way of life for me for quite some time. No matter what I am doing, whether it is my career or anything else, I like to have a plan in place. When it comes to your freelance writing plan, you need to make sure that you include the right details. After all, this is more or less the roadmap that you will follow as you move forward with your career.

First and foremost, your freelance writing plan should clearly outline your goals. I have both short and long term goals in mind at all times. For instance, your short term goal may be to earn a certain amount of income by the end of July. Since you only have a few weeks to reach your goals, you will be forced to deal with them right now. On the other side of things, a long term goal, such as an annual income number, takes devotion over several months. As you can imagine, it can be difficult to stay on pace with your freelance writing plan month after month. But if you are to succeed at this career, you need to do so.

Your freelance writing plan should also include detailed information on the markets that you want to break into, as well as how you plan on achieving this. It is one thing to say that you want to begin to write sales letter, but another entirely to have a marketing plan for achieving this goal.

Perhaps most important is the fact that your freelance writing plan can change over time. This does not mean that you should change things around everyday of the week. But you should feel free to tweak your plan if you feel that it is necessary. Even with a lot of experience, I find my plan changing from time to time; this is something that I have become used to.

If you do not have a freelance writing plan how do you know where your career is headed? To stay on track and ensure that you reach all your goals, you need a concrete plan that will outline future moves.
