How to Plan your next Day as a Freelance Writer
As a freelance writer you will work one day after the next. While this is just like any other job, you really need to make sure that you know what you are doing. This means planning your next day before it ever arrives. In other words, know what you need to do from the moment you sit down at your computer in the morning.
Here are three things you can do to successfully plan your next day as a freelance writer:
1. Have a to-do list. No matter what is on the agenda, I have a to-do list sitting right next to me at all times. This helps to keep me on track, and to ensure that I donâ€™t miss anything that needs done.
2. Know your priorities. A to-do list is great, but you also need to know what is most important. Which projects needs to be completed and sent off to the client first? Which ones can wait until the end of the day?
3. Think about more than the work you have to do for clients. Do you have any of your own projects that need worked on? Is there anything you can do to market your services? While client work may be most important to you, donâ€™t forget to leave time for other tasks.
I always plan my next day before it arrives. Sure, things can change along the way but for the most part I know what needs to get done. If you want to stay better organized and work in a more efficient manner, follow the three tips above.
