Once you’ve established “what you are writing, why and for whom”, you can move on to the writing itself.
Before you start though, do you have a deadline by which whatever you’re writing has to be finished, submitted or published?
A deadline could be within an hour; by the end of the day; by the end of next week and so on. For some reason, we seem to have an in-built tendency to think we’ve got plenty of time before the deadline is due and consequently leave everything to the last minute. Sound familiar?
This then contributes to many issues faced by business owners when they are writing something, including increased stress levels and corner-cutting and this can lead to producing writing that is full of errors.
So, what can you do about it?
If you know your deadline time or date, then work backwards to where you are now and that will tell you how long you’ve got to write your piece and you can develop a simple plan of when it can be written.
