Speechwriters: Are you working on more than one speech at a time?
Since September 1st, I have accepted seven speechwriting assignments – most due in late September or October, with one due in November.
This is a demanding load. How do I juggle seven speechwriting assignments? I don’t. I set priorities and I only work on one speech at a time.
The other speeches? I never multitask with my speechwriting research, and I even keep hard-copy files of the other speechwriting assignments completely out of sight – no distractions. That’s what desk drawers were made for!
FYI: Since September 1st, I also received other requests to write speeches on a wide variety of topics: energy, motivation, China, etc. I declined those speechwriting assignments for a range of reasons, and instead I referred those leads to experienced freelance speechwriters whose work I know well.
Look for a blog post in the coming weeks on “why I have to decline certain speechwriting assignments”.
