QUIT THINKING AND JUST WRITE
How much time do you spend ‘thinking about what to write’ or ‘sabotaging’ your writing efforts because you believe your material is sub standard or uninteresting?
How many hours do you spend fiddling with your website or editing previous posts, in comparison to publishing your work?
I’ve spent many hours doing this in my short career as a blogger. However I recently received some invaluable advice that has taken my writing to a new level.
2 simple words:
A solid ten minute free write can open your mind and activate your thoughts.
Set a timer, choose a random topic, and go for it. The result can actually be quite amusing!
There is no requirement to publish your ten minute masterpiece if it scares the heck out of you, but I’m sure you’ll find it a beneficial exercise regardless of what you choose to do with it.
Honestly, the more you challenge yourself, the better you get. It’s simply training.
There is a significant chance, readers will respond to your unedited musings better than expected, as often they endear to a more natural, honest approach to writing anyway, I know I do.
Free write for 10 minutes and see what you come up with…and then publish it!
