11 Ways to Stay an Alert Copywriter and Content Marketer (If Taking a Nap Isn’t an Option)

Well, this week was anything but sugarcoated. We got right into it.

How do you stay motivated to do great work when you’re burned out, bored, or busy?

On Monday, Stefanie Flaxman shared what to do when your eyes are tired from more than 15 years of professional proofreading. The technique she teaches works just as well for any proofreader, no matter how long you’ve been at the error-catching game.

On Tuesday, Nick Usborne outlined five ways to keep your copywriting skills fresh. Nick has been a copywriter for 40 years, so check out the post to discover how he stays interested in his craft.

On Wednesday, Belinda Weaver dished out five excellent tips for anyone who has non-negotiable time constraints. Managing your time like a pro can transform any seemingly stressful situation into one that builds confidence in your work ethic.

And you need a strong work ethic if you have a big project in the works, like finishing your book. You can listen to Kelton Reid’s conversation with Jennie Nash on The Writer Files for more on bringing your book to life.

On Unemployable, Brian Clark talked with Jerod Morris and Kat Ambrose about facing the future head on — for practical and sustainable success.

Hopefully you’re feeling energized, but these suggestions will be here for you (bookmark your favorites!) on those days when your enthusiasm sags a bit. We all have them. 🙂
