When your Work gets boring

What do you do when your work starts to get boring? Even though I love my job as a freelance writer, there are times when I feel bored out of my mind. When this happens, finding a way to break out of this funk is imperative. After all, if I am in a bored frame of mind it is safe to say that it will show through in my work. And obviously, that is never a good thing for me or my clients.

Here are three things that I do when my freelance writing work starts to get boring.

1. Although blogging is still writing, it is a great way for me to get my mind off of my freelance writing work. It is nice to be able to stay in the “writing frame of mind” but escape from the direction of a freelance writing project.

2. When writing gets boring, I market my services for a few minutes. This includes everything from sending emails to past clients to checking job boards for new projects. I like doing this because it helps my freelance writing career, but has nothing to do with my primary job of cranking out articles for clients.

3. There are times when you will be facing a bout of boredom that is unbearable. These can be tough times, so instead of fighting them, simply walk away from the computer for a bit. There is nothing wrong with taking an early lunch, heading to the post office, or doing anything else that will get your mind off your writing. Just remember, you need to head back to the computer sooner rather than later. But remember, you do not want to make this a habit.

When your work gets boring, try the three tips above. They work for me, and chances are you can find some variation that works for you!
