How to become a more efficient Freelance Writer
As my freelance writing business continues to expand I am always looking for ways to work in a more efficient manner. This leads to more time in the day for additional projects and marketing. Many freelance writers have a difficult time working in an efficient manner. I think this is something that everybody deals with at some point in their career, freelancer or not.
Here are three things that I have done to become a more efficient freelance writer:
1. Rise early. This has worked well for me, even though some freelance writers are against it. By waking up early in the morning, usually around 6 am, I have the chance to get a big jump on the workday. If you are sleeping away the better part of your day you should try getting up early a few mornings. You may be surprised at how much more efficient this makes you.
2. Use a to-do list. As I have said many times in the past, if you want to become a more efficient freelance writer you need to rely on lists. My to-do list keeps me on track from the moment I wake up until I stop working for the day. It is very important to know what is on the agenda, as well as the order in which you should work.
3. Try out different processes. You may think that you are working efficiently until you try something else and realize that you have been missing the boat. Change is not always a bad thing. Experiment with different ways of approaching your day. Remember, you can always go back to your original plan if your changes donâ€™t work out.
As you become a more efficient freelance writer you will find yourself earning more money and having more fun.Â
