Contest: Share Your Brilliant Productivity Hack for Freelance Writers

Brilliant Productivity Hacks for Freelance Writers. Makealivingwriting.com

Ever wonder how some freelance writers crank out content, market like crazy, meet client deadlines, and break into new niches?

You look at their success from the outside, and try to figure out what they’re doing that you’re not.

And it usually leads to a pity-party of thoughts like “those freelance writers get all the breaks, or just got lucky.”

But you know what? That’s usually not the case.

Successful freelance writers usually develop their skills one query letter, one LinkedIn connection, or one letter of introduction at a time.

And it’s not a throw-spaghetti-at-the-wall approach to see what sticks. It’s a calculated approach. It’s work. It’s consistent effort.

If you want to move up, earn more, and make a living writing, you’ve got to set goals and develop ways of doing things to maximize productivity.

But what does that look like? Every freelance writer has their own way of doing things.

You second-guess yourself about targeting a new niche. You avoid going after bigger clients. You keep getting sucked into searching job boards hoping to find a dream client. Or maybe you’re paralyzed with fear, feel stuck, and don’t know what to do to make this year better than last.

Sound familiar? It happens. Almost every freelance writer knows what it’s like to flounder at some point in time.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. One freelance writer went from a literal unknown to a New York Times best-selling author by adopting a specific set of habits to move up and earn more. A little bit of moxie, old-fashioned hard work and the right success habits can go a long ways.
