There’s only one secret to a productive freelancing career, and it’s simple — you’ve got to write. This means writing every day.
Early in my career, I read that a famous writer (can’t remember who) wrote four pages a day, every day. No matter what else was going on in his life, or how much time he had, he wrote his four pages. Those four pages might be great, or they might be lousy, he didn’t question anything — he just wrote his four pages.
Over the years, I’ve occasionally set myself goals of writing four or six pages every day and when I did, I was thrilled at what I achieved.
Try it. I haven’t been as disciplined as I should be over 2006, so I’m going to try it too — four pages a day, no matter what!
