Back to the Real Life

If you have a day job, and you’re a writer, being on a holiday means living two or three weeks in dream. You write each morning and you spend some time in the afternoon sorting out marketing stuff and blogging.

Perfect! But, it comes to an end.

What do you do when you go back to your job?

Here are the three most important things you need to implement if you want to be successful and eventually get rid of the day job:

  • Make sure that you have a good schedule. Building time blocks and planning your day ahead is the most important step.
  • Block out a time for writing and make it the most important part of the day. Choose either morning or evening, when nobody can interrupt you; depending on your preference.
  • Accept that you can’t do as much as you used to during the holiday. Leave non fiction projects for the next holiday or stretch them out so they don’t take much of you time.
