For each freelance writer, there is no right (or wrong) way to do their work. It is as individual a decision as the ideas that bubble to the surface and finally cement as the end result.

For some writers, they produce their best works when they sit down, with a set time to write, and they work best in more or less a structured or rostered way. Without some kind of timetable, it just does not happen.

For people who work in this way, even if they do not have a little time, they might set themselves a task of writing so many words. This method may suit writers who may expect frequent interruptions during the writing process.

For example they might set aside two hours to work, but if they are a parent of a very young child, they will most probably need to attend to that child’s needs in that time period, and may feel unsatisfied with the final end product of the amount of work they achieve.

Or they may simply need to lower their expectations of themselves if multi-tasking simply cannot be avoided so they do not become burnt out.

For those writers who need to “become inspired” to write, opportunities will present themselves at varying frequencies, and writing will be more or less a spontaneous process. For example, for me, the day’s events or things I happen to have been pondering about independently provoke the process of writing.

For these kind of writers, if they desire to ultimately make a living from what they do, rather than having a set time to write; hopefully the creative cogwheels that often turn rather frequently in their mind; it might be important to write a set number of words or articles per day, rather than to devote certain hours, or even days.

I have found, and this might need to change, that I almost exclusively rely on the unplanned for thoughts and events that set an idea in motion almost totally are responsible for the work that I write.

For most writers I presume, a place where they can write where is as quiet and as distraction-free as possible optimises the end result.

Constant distractions detract from the time that can be spent writing will result in lower quality work. For mothers with very young children who wish to write, who are unsupported and struggling for income may have some supports who can help to tend to the child’s needs. Multi-tasking of some kind is almost universal, so extra time may just be needed to allow for the end result. For example, I am a recent ex-student who does not drive; I am out of credit, and need to walk to places with WiFi.

No approach to writing is right or wrong, it's just different. New writers may wish to experiment with different ways before branding themselves as a particular type of writer.

The thing that ideally happens, at I am so fortunate that I experience, is a sense of peace, contentment or happiness while writing.
