I write for my business a minimum of one hour per day.
The time of day varies depending on what’s on my calendar as far as client time, networking, special projects, training, etc.
Similar to what I think Glen is saying, if I try to pre-schedule that hour out every day I end up staring at the screen — it doesn’t work for me because it feels too constricting. So the hour is spent whenever it fits in and is usually broken up into two 30 minute blocks — I’ve found that’s an ideal amount of uninterrupted time for me to get some good writing done.
For blog posting, the schedule goes like this:
Post for the week is emailed to VA on Monday at 5pm.
Post goes live on Wednesday.
I just started with this schedule and anticipate that the posts will build up over time so that I have some in reserve — which will mean I can increase frequency to twice a week and/or have a nice cushion for when I take time off. Or both.
