I’m on Daniel DiPiazza’s newletter and Friday, I received an email about his daily writing routine.
Since many of my last blog posts were about writing, trying to beat procrastination of blogging, this came very timely to me.
The email linked to a video, which I’m sharing with you here.
A lot of what Daniel says resonates with me, and I guess with you too.
As you will discover, there’s some stuff about being prolific.
Writing every single day
The more you do, the better you become.
Simple as that. The great tip here is that you don’t have to publish if you don’t want.
Blogging implies publishing, and that’s the next level. But if you’re just honing your writing skill, then for now, make a habit of writing every day.
And of course, there’s what Daniel calls the stream of consciousness. I don’t think I have a phrase for it, but I blogged about writing whatever comes to your mind and then ideas will come.
Stream of Consciousness
It’s what I use the most (along with documenting).
You may have seen this described as being an intuitive writer. Anyway, that’s a short post from me, because the real value is in the video:
Keep Your Drafts
I’m trying to write every day, I don’t publish everything but I have tons of drafts.
These piece of content may not be fully developped, sometimes hey’re just 2 or 3 paragraphs long. And thus, not good enough to be published (or so I think).
But I know there are here and I g back to those to add more. So just an additional tip: don’t delete content you wrote because you think it can’t be published now.
First, maybe it’s a self limiting belief. Or maybe you just need to add more content, or edit, or rewrite and inspiration will come later.
You never know where your thoughts can lead you, nor when they will appear.
I highly recommend you follow Daniel from somewhere, check out his website: Rich 20 Something.
And I support that word: Peace! 😉
