Manage your Time as a Freelance Writer

As a freelance writer one of the most difficult things you have to do is manage your time. This sounds simple enough, but as your business grows you will find yourself realizing just how difficult it can be. The better you become at time management the better chance you have of achieving both short and long term success.

Here are three time management tips that I use on a regular basis:

1. Prioritize. What needs to get done first? It is very important to take care of everything on your plate, but at the same time you need to know which order to work in. Simply put, some projects and tasks are more important than others. Make sure you know your priorities and then work in the proper order.

2. Have a to-do list. With a list in front of you at all times it becomes simpler to manage your time in an effective manner. This gives you the ability to know what needs done weighed against how much time you have.

3. Make changes as time goes by. For example, I used to wake up between 8 and 9 in the morning. Soon enough I realized that this was not working for me from a time management perspective. As soon as I bumped up my start to 6am things got better for me. An early rise helps me feel fresh in the morning, while also giving more time to complete more tasks.

To achieve great success as a freelance writer you need to manage your time effectively. The three tips above have worked for me, and hopefully they can do the same for you.
