Is your Freelance Writing Load too Large?

It may be hard to imagine, but there will probably come a day when you have too much work on your table. This is better than not enough work, but at the same time it can be a difficult situation to deal with. If your freelance writing load is too large you need to make some changes to better your situation. After all, having too much work can have negative impacts on your career.

If you have too much work the first thing you must do is begin to work more hours; this goes without saying. After you commit to a project and a deadline you have to finish the work. So for the time being, you should put in more hours to ensure that you meet every deadline and that every project is given your full attention.

Once you have cleared some room on your plate, you should then consider how you want to move forward. If you are not careful you will find yourself bogged down once again. In my opinion, the best thing to do is weed out low paying jobs. This may not be the best option for you, but it is definitely something to consider. I know, it can be difficult to tell a client that you can no longer work with them, but this is something that has to be done from time to time. You don’t want to spend so much time with low paying clients that you put off more valuable gigs, and in turn jeopardize future earnings.

There is nothing wrong with carrying a large load of freelance writing work. In theory, the more projects you have on tap the more money you are going to earn. But at the same time, this can lead to problems such as spreading yourself thin or burning out.

Before you decide to cut your client list make sure your freelance writing load really is too large. In other words, you don’t want to cut your list if you don’t have to. Fortunately, most freelance writers have no problem determining when they are stretched thin and working too many hours.
