Find Time for Some Writing Tips from Yours Truly!


Paula Eder, EzineArticles.com Platinum Author
Finding time (this is for all the writers out there) to create content and keep it fresh, focused, interesting, and relevant can be a big challenge, don’t you agree?  That’s why I felt especially validated to learn that my work had been featured on the EzineArticles.com Blog in their Case Study yesterday.

I’ve been writing and posting articles there since 2006, and if you are not familiar with EzineArticles.com, you should definitely take a peek at their site.  It’s hard to think of a better venue for sharing your expertise with a wide and varied audience.  As it says on their home page, what you’ll find there is “356,006 Expert Authors Sharing Their Best EzineArticles”!

If writing is a key component of your business … or if a writing career is something that you aspire to … check out the case study, where I offer 4 tips, including these 3 keys:

  • Establish a Writing Schedule for Yourself
  • Remember that Slow and Steady Wins the Race
  • Write About What You Know

Even beyond these keys, the 4th, and perhaps most important tip is to invest time in staying refreshed.

This can be hard to do, especially when you are working under pressure or within time constraints.  But I can’t emphasize it enough!  When you are refreshed … when you allow yourself this time and space … you are going to be much more productive.  Stress and fatigue block your creativity. The ideas simply don’t flow – and you end up spending more time and getting less done.

It requires discipline to step away and refresh yourself. You may need to experiment, too – to find what works best for you.  Maybe it will be going for a run or doing some stretches.  It might be meditating, or doing some kind of free-flow writing exercise, or visiting your garden to do some weeding.  Whatever you find that gives you a break and allows you to return to your work refreshed and energized … THAT is time well spent!

I hope this post was helpful, and would love to hear about how YOU refresh yourself and your writing routine!  Oh, and I’d love to hear what you think about the Case Study, too – so excited about that!
