Get More Writing Done in Less Time

April 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 113

Article writing depends on working per piece or article rather than clocking in on a time clock and getting paid hourly. This is why it is important to work your best when you are at the computer so you can make the most in a short frame of time. This is not always easy when there are so many distractions but if you can get more writing done in less time, you and your wallet are happier. The following are some tips to increase your productivity:

  • Stay Off Social Network Sites - I know, this can be hard to do; it is so easy to just have your Twitter, Facebook or other social networking site open while you are working. It is just a peek and it is not hurting anything, right? Well, when you think about the 5 minutes here and there that adds up to quite a bit of time wasted. Instead, do you social networking on your breaks only and you'll find that you get much more accomplished.
  • Minimize Interruptions - I know this one can be very hard to do particularly when you have a family or other people in the house. Children always need attention and if they are not school age yet, this can mean quite a bit of time spent being interrupted by them. If possible, work when the kids are napping, at school or when there is someone to fill their needs while you write. For the adults in the household, let them know that you are off limits until your work is done and not to bother you.
  • Get Organized - What this means is know exactly what you are doing for the day and start at the beginning and work your way through the jobs. Some people think making a list helps and I tend to agree. Have any notes you need, your coffee or drink and your desk set up before you start work. Getting up and sitting down constantly takes time away from writing and your focus can get muddled.

Writers are always looking for ways to get more writing done is less time because we are not paid hourly. The more we get done in a day, the better our pay is at the end of the week or when invoicing is done. Leave social networking for off times, get rid of interruptions and stay organized to maximize your time spent writing.
