You have made your decision. You are going to pursue your passion to write on a full-time basis. It is great that you have found your calling; however, you need to take certain steps to make the most of it. You will need to learn time-management tips to apply as a full-time writer.
You need to begin by working toward becoming a good typist if you have not already done so. The more quickly and accurately you can type, the more content you will write in less time. This is especially important if you often have deadlines to meet. Two good websites that help you practice include Learn 2 Type and Typing Test.
It is necessary to write when you are highly productive. I do not work for more than 45 minutes at a time without getting up and taking a break for at least five minutes. If I start to become drowsy, I take a nap.
You should set a goal to complete a particular quantity of work each day. If your responsibility is to produce articles that contain at least four hundred words, you should strive to produce one or two articles a day. If your responsibility is to produce books, you should strive to complete at least one chapter a day.
It is also helpful to set a time frame. If I want to produce two articles a day, I try to do each one within one and a half to two hours. If I want to produce five chapters a day, I try to get each one done within 15 to 30 minutes. Setting a time frame helps motivate me to do my work more quickly.
If you are writing for money, you should devote most of your time toward assignments and projects that will yield the highest dividends. If you are an aspiring book author who has the skill to produce material for a variety of genres, you should set your sights on putting together the types of literary works publishers pay the most for. If your interest mainly lies in authoring articles, you should register with a web site that offers upfront payments for exclusive articles.
Once I find an article or book assignment to do, I print out my instructions or copy and paste them into my document and follow them closely. After I finish doing my article draft or book manuscript, I fully read it twice to make sure that it does not contain spelling or grammatical errors. Taking these steps helps me avoid having my submissions rejected or sent back to me for revisions.
You have learned tips for managing your time as a full-time writer. By applying them, you will be more productive and have a more rewarding experience.
