It’s not alcohol, I promise. It’s also not ‘just writing’ – although it’s a big part of it. It’s much simpler than that. I write content every day as it is my job, and it earns me a living. I would probably still write if it didn’t, but it’s nice to know that you can get paid by doing what you love.
I run into obstacles all the time. I don’t consider myself as a person who can admit to liking the phrase ‘writers blocks’ – I think I get a ‘creativity block’ instead, but that happens very rarely, and only because I try and balance things out, which may be something that you should consider if you’re lacking the juice to move forward?
This is not the only blog I write for, it used to be – but I’ve quickly accumulated a lot of attention which I am truly grateful for, and it has given me a lot of opportunities to write for some of the best blogs in the industry. I wouldn’t have been able to achieve such results as quickly as I did, if it wasn’t for regular content updates. I’ve been posting on regular basis for a few weeks now, and it’s actually quite fun.
I write creatively, I wrote poetry and I sometimes write in a free for all mode. The largest portion of my writing however goes to writing about the things I love and have a passion for, like writing itself. These are the three things that keep me going and let me write on regular basis, they may be different to you – but I’m willing to listen to your story and engage in a discussion.
Knowing What to Write About
I don’t like ‘raw’ writing, in a sense that I have to come up with an idea – five minutes before I have to write about it. I am always planning ahead and saving ideas in my WordPress dashboard for later. There are times when I delete them all, because I’ve let them sink in for too long. There are times when I cannot stop writing, because all of the ideas are sparking creativity and inspiration inside of me.
The most important thing is that I’ve given myself a choice. I will always try and have at least three titles to choose from, and then I can begin writing – by having chosen the one that felt the most appropriate at that time. It greatly increases the quality of my posts, I realized that rather quickly.
Forgetting That It’s a ‘Job’
I’m guessing that you’re a blogger or a writer that earns a living through their writing, and I am guessing that to a certain extent you believe that it’s a job of yours. You treat it and respect it like you would any real job. I know it’s true in my case, and that is why I always try to forget that it’s a job.
Instead, I will always remind myself that it’s a way for me to earn a living, learn more about life and also expand and grow as a human being. It’s not just a job, I’m doing what I love for a living – it’s the best thing ever!
Trying New Things
This also relates to being able to write poetry and other similar, creative activities that writing offers. I think one of the biggest reasons for me being able to publish and produce content on regular basis is the fact that I try and mix things up. You simply get tired of ‘teaching’ sometimes, and that is why I try to include startups and infographics in my mix of writing.
It’s not only helping me to learn about those infographics and startups, it’s giving me the extra space I need to write about something else, while other ideas and content settles down. The next time I return, I’m ready to produce more quality content.
To give a perfect example, I spend Monday’s writing about startups and infographics, nothing else. It gives me a great start to the week, as I’ve exercised my writing a little bit and the next day I’m ready to publish new blog posts.
Writing Content on Regular Basis
It certainly isn’t for everyone, but it is for me and that’s all I care about. I can only help you make it easier for you. I will also gladly answer any questions you have in the comment box. I haven’t been writing for extremely long, but it’s been close to my heart for a couple of years now.
I’m now phasing in and out, learning how to produce something that’s not only quality, but also really helpful and engaging. I hope I was able to deliver on that very note in this post.
