How I Recharged my Mind to Improve my Writing

  1. Choose work that you most enjoy — There’ll always be projects that do not interest us in any way. When you stumble upon them, just say “no”. You will feel more fulfilled and productive when you actually do work that you love.
  2. Prioritize your assignments — Yes, every assignment has a tight deadline and we hurry to meet. But do not overwhelm yourself with a bulky to-do list. Pick 2–3 most important tasks for the day and focus solely on completing them.
  3. Communicate with your client regularly — Make sure you ask your clients the right questions from the outset, clarifying any doubts to avoid having to make multiple revisions. When writing, always take your clients’ specifications on board because, in the end, their satisfaction will determine your future contracts and paycheck.
  4. Do not multitask — Never, ever multitask. Working on two or more assignments simultaneously is not advisable if you want your writing to be high-quality. You would think you’re being productive, but when your client points out all the errors and asks you to rework, you will be in a lot of pain. Trust me. I once multitasked three assignments and the results were pretty bad.
  5. Relieve stress — Do whatever you can to relax and bust your stress and anxiety. I, for example, ask my husband to tell me a joke, knowing that he’s terrible at it. As expected, he tells such bad jokes that I actually end up laughing hard. It instantly clears my mind! But hey, do whatever works for you.
