THERE IS MORE TO LEARNING TO WRITE THAN WRITING
BUT, APART FROM CONDITIONING YOUR MIND (A SEPARATE BLOG) ACTUALLY WRITING IS MOST OF IT—AND, IN MY OPINION, IT IS BEST DONE EVERY DAY (7 days a week).
IT WORKS FOR ME!
Seth Godin is pretty much the eponymous blogger to the point where I’m surprised we don’t yet call it ‘sething’—and we still may.
He has an ability to be brief, yet insightful, which I admire. And he is on the money as far as the following blog of his is concerned.
Blogging every day is no minor commitment—but I regard my decision to do that as one of my wiser ones.
The man is right—yet again—and he positively excels at self –promotion (a necessary task, these days, even if you are an introverted writer).
Look below for a perfect example of Seth Godin’s branding.
Abbey Ryan has painted a new painting every day for 8 years.
Isaac Asimov published 400 books, by typing every day.
This is post #6000 on this blog.
Writer's block is a myth, a recent invention, a cultural malady.
More important than the output, though, is the act itself. The act of doing it every day. When you commit to a practice, you will certainly have days when you don't feel like it, when you believe it's not your best work, when the muse deserts you. But, when you keep your commitment, the muse returns. When you keep your commitment, the work happens.
It doesn't matter if anyone reads it, buys it, sponsors it or shares it. It matters that you show up.
Show up, sit down and type. (Or paint).
