I’ll Write Over 1.200.000 Words in 2018, More Than The Entire Harry Potter Series
Day 93/365: I can do it, I can do it, I can… oh, look: an Oreo!
The month of March has been a crazy one for me. I landed on 2 new clients (I have a total of 4, I keep things simple, but productive) and I managed to beat my all-time records when it comes to content creation. After launching the website and everything else, the amount of stuff that I need to write on a daily basis has tripled, and then doubled, and then tripled again.
I know work out about 28.000 words in a regular week. Besides the daily 750 words article here on Medium, I work on several other articles that I write every day of the week but the weekends, which are totalling the above-mentioned number. In March, the total was 114.500 words.
Breaking the record
If I keep this pace up, which is both crazy and manageable, I’ll end up writing over 1.2 million words in 2018. That’s more than all of the 7 Harry Potter books combined, which sum up a little under 1.1 million words, according to the mighty Internet. That is INCREDIBLE for me, to be able to write so much and still enjoy doing it.
In fact, I don’t see how I’ll ever end up bored or angry about it because, with every new project that I embark on, it’s like I’m destined to land on only amazing clients with great, interesting and engaging projects. That is KEY when it comes to content creation and keeping it motivating.
It’s like I’m winning the content creation lottery over and over again. I don’t want to jinx this good strike that I’m on, I know that there might be a lot of bad months this year and I’m mentally ready to face them, but until the third quarter of 2018, I have to say I’m set when it comes to writing, and that is nothing but assuring to me.
It’s all about the Notebook
Not the movie, but the little supermarket notebook that I keep on my desk and dictates what’s on the menu for today. That notebook has become my Bible, as I follow the daily tasks and the overall schedule to the letter. This is how I managed to write the equivalent of “The Philosophers Stone” and “The Chamber of Secrets” in the last 5 weeks or so.
Whatever time management app, program or system you use, the only thing you need to remember is to actually devote to it 101% every single day. You might be a freelancer like me, or working in an agency, or anywhere else, but only if you stick to your schedule, you’ll be able to finish your daily tasks and walk home with a smile on your face, a sore back, runny eyes and decent money for coffee.
