How do Freelance Writers spend their Days?

Chris, how do freelance writers spend their days? I can’t tell you how many emails I have received asking this same question. Every time I get an email like this it gets me excited. Why? Simply put, if somebody is asking this question they are probably very close to making the leap into the freelance writing industry. With that being said, this is a difficult question to answer because no two days are ever the same.

Even though it would be impossible to show everything that I do throughout the day, here is a basic outline. Keep in mind that this changes from day to day.

6:45 am

This is when I get out of bed on most days, including the weekends. Of course, this changes based on what I have going on that day, as well as what I did the day before. I love getting up early because it gives me plenty of time to work, while also giving the feeling that my productivity is at its highest.

For the first hour or so of the day I read and respond to emails, get together anything I need for the day, and take a look over the to-do list that I created the day before.

7:45 am

At this time I begin to work through my list of items that need to be completed for the day. How long does this take, you may ask? Well, this all depends on the length and depth of the list. As I am writing this, there are nine items that need to be taken care of. Some of them are as extensive as writing a feature article, and others are nothing more than research.

On most days, I have all of my work out of the way by 11:00 am. This is when I move away from my freelance writing tasks, and start to work on other projects such as this blog, sites I am developing, etc. For the most part, this lasts until 4:00 pm.

4:00 pm

Generally speaking, this is when my day ends. Of course, I usually find myself back at the computer for a few hours in the evening to check email, read message boards, or research new ideas. Before closing everything down, I always make sure that my to-do list for the next day is complete. I like having this done the day before as opposed to having to deal with it in the morning.

As mentioned above, the amount of time and order that I work changes on a regular basis. But if you are interested in my basic freelance writing work schedule, this is it.
