With a new year comes renewed determination and desire to succeed with your writing efforts. Whether you have been writing for years or want to get started in 2024, these tips can help you optimize your writing-from-home experience.

Create a routine and stick to it

Figure out a routine that works best for you. Do you need to complete a writing project all in one go? Or does writing an outline, taking a break, writing the first draft, and coming back to it sounds closer to your process?

Determine what works for you, and then set time aside to accommodate it. For example, you could use Monday as a day for research, with Tuesday being a writing day.

Set SMART goals

You have probably heard of SMART goals before, but if you have not, SMART is an acronym for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound. If you set a SMART goal for every new project you take on, you will be more likely to meet your desired deadlines.

You can also use this goal-setting method for other aspects of your writing from home life. Maybe you want to increase the number of assignments you can take on or improve your writing quality. Either way, set a SMART goal and see it through.

Don’t forget about yourself

When writing from home, it is easy to lose track of taking care of yourself in favour of improving your writing or production, but self-care is just as important as writing when working from home. Taking time for yourself is how you can prevent burnout and overcome writer’s block.

You may already have some good habits that help your productivity. At the end of the day, whatever works best for you is what matters.
