For the writer, remaining on task is one of the most frustrating tasks one might encounter. Especially for us content writers on the Internet, where there is all kinds of lovely distractions of things that we might be tempted to do other than the task at hand. The fact of the matter is, what is a content writer to do?
How to Remain on Task As a Writer
There will be periods of creative rain and creative draught as a writer, where the writing tends to flow a bit easier and where the writing just hits the wall. The brain storms willbe few and far between. The ideas are trapped right in the well, but we can’t quite get them out and translate them into articles.
But there will be times where we do want to sit down, but we keep getting distracted. Some people are more prone to distractions but when we write on the Internet, there will be far more opportunities to get our time misdirected. Whether it be YouTube, Facebook, or just reading the work of others, there is a time where we know we need to stop, but we keep going mentally, just “five more minutes.”
Clearly a little bit of self-discipline is needed to properly write. It is something that many struggle with but by dividing your time into two halveswill do the trick. Into a time where you do writing and nothing but writing as your activity on the Internet and then half into other activities. Set a timer if you must to let you know when you need to go back to your writing or when you can just do more leisurely activities on the Internet.
So if you have three hours of time where you wish to spend on the Internet, you can spend at least ninety minutes rigidly on writing and ninety minutes with more free style activities. Whether if you wish to split the time into two big blocks or alternate every half hour, it depends on how you best sustain your writing momentum.
Time management is something that is key when remaining on task. Without remaining on task, you cannot write. And without any writing you have any content. Without any content, you cannot make any earnings off of your writings. See how essential remaining on task and using proper time management is? It is the most important thing you may do as a writer.
