A freelance writing career generates a lot material, so it’s hard keeping track of everything you create each day. A log helps you to do that. It keeps you on track.
Your log can be an ordinary Microsoft Word file. Just insert the date and the time, and then enter ideas, notes, and drafts right into the log. Insert a new date heading every day. I keep phone numbers, contact details, and URLs in my log, and if I feel that I’m wasting too much time, I keep a time log as well – this cuts down on Web browsing for spurious “research.” 🙂
I create a new log file every month – they’re stored in a log folder on my hard drive. Not only are the log files a record of what I’ve done, but they’re also an inspiration. Every few months, I go back through my log files, and I always find new ideas, which I can develop further.
My gift to you: Holiday Season Writer’s Gift Pack – Santa’s sleigh is packed with gifts for you, dear writer. I wish you and yours a joyous holiday, and your best writing year ever in 2007.
