The Omni Show: Writer William Gallagher On How OmniFocus Streamlines His Workflow

In this episode of The Omni Show, host Andrew Mason is joined by William Gallagher, a writer and nonfiction author known for his work on the radio drama “Dr. Who.” As the deputy chair of the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain, William has been freelance writing since 1994 for outlets like BBC’s Radio Times and AppleInsider. He is also the host of “58keys,” a YouTube series dedicated to helping writers get the most out of Apple gear.

With 26 years of experience navigating the unpredictable world of freelancing, William shares with Andrew how OmniFocus and OmniOutliner have helped him organize ideas and track progress on projects, which has been essential to his success.

As most freelancers know, the creative market can be unpredictable. When William unexpectedly found himself out of work, he began searching for task management software to help him make sense of creative chaos. OmniFocus helped him streamline his workflow so he could capture valuable pitch ideas and view the full scope of potential new projects—a juggling act that often hinders many freelance writers from achieving their productivity and financial goals. William’s increased productivity led to more writing opportunities—and with OmniFocus in his corner, he was able to stay on top of invoicing and get paid for his work.
