Weekend Quick Tip: Don’t Waste Time

If you are a full-time freelance writer you probably work eight or so hours a day. Of course, there are times when you will work more or less. After all, this is one of the biggest perks of being a freelance writer. If you work part-time, chances are that you have even less time to work on freelance writing projects. For this reason, you need to make the most of all the time that you have available.

There are many distractions that are sure to pop up while you are working. This includes everything from emails to personal phone calls to your favorite song playing on the radio. But it only takes two minutes to take a phone call, right? Wrong! I have answered personal calls during the day thinking that I will be done within a couple minutes. A half hour later and I am just getting off the phone to find that I need to regain my focus.

It is easy to waste time as a freelance writer. There is no boss to answer to, and nobody looking over your shoulder to ensure that you are getting your work done. If you want to work effectively you are responsible for doing so. The more time you waste the less time you have to get your work done. In the end, less time means less pay.

An efficient use of time is important if you are going to be a successful freelance writer. Know how many hours you are going to work, and then stay focused and on track during this allotted time.
