You want to write a book, being an author has been your lifelong dream. But life got in the way, and now you’re stuck with your job and daily chores. Making time to write amidst your daily grind seems impossible. Don’t hang your gloves already. You’d be surprised to know that these famous authors all had day jobs before their writing careers took off.

If they could do it back then, you can surely do it today with the improved connectivity and never-ending resources in the digital world. If not full time, you can put in the efforts for part time writing to begin with. Writing of any kind – fiction, non-fiction, short stories, technical can all be pursued in your spare time.

We’ll show you the why and how of part-time writing.

 

Why seriously consider part-time writing:

 

1) You have it in you

In Fact, everyone does. Writing is a skill we can all develop. It needs continuous effort and persistence. Every individual has unique ideas to share with the world, and they do come out when one puts paper to pen.

 

2) It can be your side hustle

Gone are the days of a steady job & a stable career. Today, you have to have side projects which will drive those extra bucks into your account. Improving your writing skills will provide you another avenue of professional advancement.  

3) Display your expertise

If you excel in your education or job, and it has made you an expert in a particular field of knowledge, why hold back? You could write books on it and become an authority figure on that subject. E-books can be short and can be authored in a limited span of time.

 

How to accelerate your writing process.

 

1) Make writing your second job

Treat it as your other job. Simple! Be your own boss. Set deadlines for yourself. Treat yourself for achieving goals. Do all that it takes to write seriously.

 

2) Keep a journal

To reiterate the age-old writing advice – don’t seek perfectionism. Well, maybe not everywhere. If you are not in the zone to write for your professional material. You can maintain a daily journal where you can write whatever the heck you want to. A flow of consciousness sort of writing. Who knows? That journal could turn out to be interesting, get published and you could be the next Jack Kerouac!  

 

3) Blogging

This has become a must for all writers. Big or small, established or novice. Writers have to maintain a blog where they put up free content. Your thoughts, ideas, opinions, and views to keep the readers glued. This is where you create hype for your next release. Engage with the blog visitors and get feedback from the comments.

 

4) Self-publishing is your gateway

The most exciting incentive you have for writing part-time is self-publishing. No pressure of having to impress big publishers and wait your turn to be under the spotlight of the publishing world. You can flash it on yourself!
