I found a great image from furman.edu that asked Do you love or do you hate writing.
Are you considering starting a business, or maybe you already have one, but you’re finding the writing hard. Well, it’s not hard at all, but it’s a bit of work. You need to have a plan and I’m going to show you 3 things I did to help me come up with my blog articles.
This is how some of you probably feel. Maybe you’ve been told you don’t write well. Were you an average writer in school? Well, I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to listen to those people because….they are not who you are writing for. You are a writer. You’re just not an academic writer and sorry, who wants to be one of them. Not me. Sorry if I offended anyone, but theory for me is soooooo dry.
Here’s what I’ve learned from my mentors to help me come up with ideas for writing.
- write at least 10 ideas that you want to talk about
- ask your readers or friends what they are struggling with, or would like to learn about
- book time in your calendar to do the work! Take it from me, someone who works full-time and has a part-time business. You need to schedule things in and…don’t expect to have a full-year salary in 1 year if you are not working on your business at least 10 – 20 hours a week! Sorry, it’s just not going to happen. Wait, it can happen if you are determined.
Now, if it’s not the ideas that you’re struggling with, but rather you hate writing. Well, here’s a few ideas to consider
- have someone else write it for you
- do a video instead
- do an audio version
It doesn’t have to be written, but it does have to be available on your website for people to get to know you.
Here’s to your success.
