The Mighty Egg Timer

by Clare
(Dublin, Ireland)

My best time management advice: the mighty egg timer! I am a freelance writer with loads of different projects on the go. My assignments are generally short pieces, no more than 500 words. There are always a few writing pieces that excite me and several that get pushed to the bottom of the pile. In order to force myself to spend time on each writing piece, I use an egg timer. I spend 20 minutes on one article without stopping. I scrawl, I type, I brainstorm, I write, but I do not stop. For 20 minutes. Until the egg timer rings. And it's time for a cuppa tea.
