Can you Really Plan your Day as a Freelance Writer?

No matter what day of the week it is I always have a to-do list next to my computer. This more or less guides me through the day, and keeps me on track to ensure that I don’t miss anything that needs to be completed. That being said, many freelance writers feel that planning their day is a lost cause. In other words, they have found that this never works to their advantage because something is always coming around that knocks them off schedule.

There is no denying that your schedule can and will change on a moment’s notice. For instance, even though I have a to-do list it doesn’t mean that I will stick to it if something more important comes up. In the past I have had clients get in touch with an urgent project that needs completed the same business day. While situations like this don’t come up often, when they do it is important for me to scrap my to-do list and move forward with the new project first. Of course, I eventually head back to my list to complete the rest of the day’s work.

I have found that planning my day usually works out just fine. There are times when I may have to stray from my to-do list, but they are few and far between. Even though it is nice to stay on track, you never know what is going to come up. Make sure you have enough flexibility to adjust if need be.

All in all, you can and should plan your day as a freelance writer. I strongly believe in having a to-do list, and this is something that I will never change. Just remember there may be days when you have to tweak your list to satisfy yourself and/or your clients.
