Time management continues to be an issue for writers. Back in November of 2007 I wrote about time management for writers. Once you see where your time is going and how you can make the most of the time you have, you will accomplish more in all areas of your life.
Keep a written journal of how you spend your time for a period of three or four days. Include at least one weekend day and a day that is filled with unexpected interruptions as two of the days you track. Take a look at what you could have done differently – delegated some activities to others, postponed something, etc. – and see what changes you need to make in your life. If you work from home, as most writers do, set goals and make a schedule for when you will be writing each day.
Making time for your writing today will pay off handsomely tomorrow. Your writing becomes the body of work that will bring you profits and opportunities for years to come.
