You are a freelance writing mother. You have to take care of your children as well as maintain a household – a full-time job. You also have to manage a business, which can feel like another full-time job, whether you put in full-time hours or not. All of these duties are time-consuming and, at times, overwhelming.
When I feel the weight of task on top of task, I write an attainable list. It might be a list for the day or for the week. My lists include business duties, family-oriented chores or personal goals. A few weeks ago, I wrote a freelance writing plan for the next few months.
I was motivated by the article “30 Ways to Build Your Writer Platform.” This valuable resource helped me get on track, rather than bouncing from one money-making plot to the next ‘guaranteed way to write and make cash’ idea.
I feel like I’m not just doing what I love, but also writing with a goal in mind. If you’re still trying to figure out how to market yourself, check out that article. As a busy mom, you cannot afford to waste your time.
