Setting Your Freelance Writing Goals For 2013

by Amanda J Evans on January 9, 2013

GoalsIt’s the start of a new year and for many freelance writers, this is a time for re-assessing their career goals. I usually spend the first week of any new year looking back over the previous 12 months. My reason for this is so that I can see what I have achieved and where I need to place some extra focus. This helps me to come up with a clear list of goals for the coming year.

If you haven’t already done this, I would suggest trying it as it is a very useful exercise.

One of my goals for 2012 was to reduce the amount of time spent on client work without impacting on the lifestyle I was accustomed to. My reasons or this was my two young children and the growing urge to spend more time writing for me. I am happy to say that I managed this successfully. I cut down my work hours, maintained my level of income and managed to publish not one but two books both of which are available in ebook and paperback format. 2012 was therefore, in my eyes, a very successful year.

In 2013 I want to focus more on teaching and helping others which means I will be spending more time on this blog. I am planning a number of article series that will focus on getting more writing jobs, where the best jobs can be found, bidding website analysis and much more. I will also be providing more information on how to market yourself as a freelancer and how to specialise in a particular niche.

I am really looking forward to 2013 and the opportunities it will bring and I invite you all to come along for the journey.

For now I will leave you with one valuable piece of advice that I picked up over the years:

If you never try, you can never succeed.”

Until next time,

Keep writing.
