This week has been a pretty hectic week. I’ve had orders come flying in from my clients for social media plans, blog posts, white papers, content writing and on top of all of that I’ve had to manage the upcoming publication of my new book.
I always knew having to manage this workload was going to be tough but I never actually thought that to do it would require quite so many hours. But as I sit here and think what has gone well in my first couple of weeks of taking on freelancing work, I remind myself of something a solid fact. It can take up to six months to get established in a job.
This doesn’t mean that I won’t produce quality content, but it does mean that to get my schedules working and my efficiency will take time.
It is like that with any new author. When you first writing your first book can take months to write it, if not longer, when some authors can produce a book in under two months. This shouldn’t be seen as a failure on your account. If you are starting out perhaps your should cut yourself some slack. You are learning a trade which is hard to grasp a hold of. If it were easy everyone would be a bestselling author.
Cope with your learning curve and if you stick with writing you should find yourself writing books at a speed of knots in time.
