Easy, Fast Freelance Writing - Five Tips To Speed Up Your Writing And Make More Money

As a freelance writer, the more you write, the more money you make - that's only logical. Writing more/ making more money is easy, when you have the right mindset.

You need systems which allow you to write, when it's your writing time.

I've refined my own systems, and I continue to refine them, with a goal to writing more, and making more money. My goal is to double, and triple if possible, my writing income each month.

You need to do this too. You're an individual, you have abilities and a limit to the time you have available. Create a system that works for you, and then continue to make adjustments as you're writing more, and making more money from your words.

However, before you can develop your own system, you need to work on your mindset.

Here are five tips to help you to develop the best mindset to double and triple your writing income every month:

Tip One: Schedule Your Time - You Make Money One Word At A Time

Goals are fine, but you can't "do" goals. You can only do tasks which lead to the accomplishment of your goals. Schedule each task, and then follow the schedule. Currently I use iCal on my Mac, and the BackPack Web application as my scheduling tools.

Tip Two: Dream Big - You Can Only Reach What You Aim For

Your goals should be large enough to scare you. Then you need to get comfortable thinking about what your life will be like when you've achieved a particular goal. See yourself in this new place. Your imagination is creative. As sports coaches point out: if you can see it, you can achieve it. So spend time every day imagining yourself when you've accomplished your current Big Dream.

Don't concern yourself with HOW you'll achieve the dream. As the dream becomes real to you imaginatively, you'll discover the ways and means.

Tip Three: Keep Extending Your Goals, Even Before You Reach Them

Once you get comfortable aiming for your Big Dream, and you know that you'll achieve it, extend it.

You need to develop goals beyond your goals. If you don't, your tendency is to snap back to the safe, secure and undemanding pre-goal rut.

Tip Four: Expect To Be Uncomfortable And Confused

Confusion is good. If you're not spending at least a quarter of your time thoroughly confused, and wondering what the heck you're doing, you're spending too much time in your comfort zone. You'll be confused about markets, about your writing, about how you write a project. . . Confusion is not just good. . . it's great, because it means you've left your comfort zone behind.

Keep writing - what confuses you today, will be routine tomorrow.

Tip Five: Just Do It - Don't Talk About Your Writing

Writers have a tendency to talk too much. Talking - asking for reassurance, or bragging, even - is easy. Unfortunately, the people you turn to for advice are rarely equipped to give it. Well-meaning though they are, they'll sabotage your efforts. And the people to whom you brag will become enemies really fast - that's just human nature.

Stop talking, and start writing. It's the writing which counts.

So there you go: develop the right mindset, and you'll not only write more, but also you'll be doubling and tripling your monthly income with ease.
