Social media can be a major time-suck that consumes valuable time that could be spent writing. Nonetheless, it’s a necessary evil to have an online presence. If you have to figure out each day what you’re going to do, it will take even more time. One way around that is to plan your posts in advance, so you can just cut and paste. Perhaps, spend a day putting together Facebook posts and tweets for the coming week; then you’re free for a few days.

Another option is to use an app like Hootsuite, which will even allow you to upload several at a time, several days, weeks or even months ahead. This is also helpful if you go on vacation, out of town, or just need a break.
