Writers Block 10 The Essential And Unstoppable Formula

If you write content, writer’s block is the one thing that is surely going to rear it’s ugly head eventually. Writers block, however is something that can be overcome and the good news is that it’s fairly common. So no need to fear that something is wrong with you if you wake up one day with a blank slate wondering why it is so hard to figure out the next piece of content you’re going to publish to your eagerly awaiting audience. Even for my own candid fans, the Candid Writer experiences the unpleasant reality of writers block too.

So that brings us to the meat of the conversation in today’s blog post in asking this one question. How to deal with writers block ?

This 10 tip essential formula is comprised of a number of surefire and legitimate writers block strategies below that will surely be helpful in addressing your writers block. With that said, please consider bookmarking this page for quick reference in the future.

Writer's Block Strategy #1

WATCH. No we’re not talking about your wristwatch or anything pertaining to time. However, I am talking about watching people. When it comes to content, let’s face it, the more things that we can do to boost our creativity to get your writing kool aid going again is something worth looking at. People watching is a unique strategy to give you a different perspective regardless of the content that you’re producing for your website or blog.

As you engage in this strategy, think about the niche that you’re in and make connections. Additionally, just getting outside, sitting in a venue to watch people can invoke ideas that aren’t going to be realized sitting at home in front of your computer.

Writer's Block Strategy #2

This strategy is called SPARK. Some of you may read this one and be all in, while others may think, eh meh.. not for me, but when I struggle with writing personally, sometimes it’s all about watching someone else’s adversity to re-energize my mind beyond the writers block threshold before I’ll write another word. Whether it’s watching a movie that’s moving emotionally or just something to light a fire under me, video clips like this one (as seen below) can be the spark you need to cure your writer’s block. What I take from videos like this one is not to quit. That whatever I experience in my block for this moment is temporary and won't last forever, but that it depends on me to take steps to get through it. That my passion for what I do will lead me back to a place where I can get back up and write again. Most of the time, it’s all about the mindset. A spark is what got you started and getting the spark back will get you going again. Enjoy the video.

Writer's Block Strategy #3

Try some unconventionalism and visit the blogs that have a different spin and perspective in the niche you’re in. Just as an expression, but certainly something worth thinking about is looking at it from a completely different perspective (instead of seeing it with your eyes open, why not close them). Remember the days of just firing up a blog and typing away and that was the only way people blogged. Then all of a sudden photo blogs and micro blogs starting showing up. Blogging from a different lens spawned all sorts of new ideas. What will the unconventional approach do you for you to address your writing block woes ?

Writer's Block Strategy #4

Squash the crickets in the room. This is about answering all the questions that people have that no one else is answering. Few times are these questions easy and even in their complexity and difficulty, it will add to your credibility as a blogger and writer by those viewing your responses. Additionally, visiting forums, places like social media and question / answer websites can provide you with a bottomless bucket of inquiries that no one else is answering that you can thus curing your writers block when you are unable to come up with new material on your own. Even better yet, taking this approach, as I eluded to before can elevate you positively in a way that doesn’t happen when you’re simply answering questions or writing straightforward about topics that hundreds or thousands of others have already addressed. Understandably this differs from niche to niche, but is a worthwhile strategy addressing the writers block issue that everyone experiences eventually.

Writer's Block Strategy #5

Another strategy that’s meaningful in getting writers block help is what I like to call “jumping in the ring”. Get in the middle of an argument on a topic in your niche. Their responses and your contributions to the dialogue will get your writing about both sides & perspectives on the topic that people are disagreeable about. I get it that it’s not the most comfortable thing to do for some people, but if you’re the kind of person where disagreements don’t bother you to the point of uncomfortability, this is a writer’s block strategy that can be helpful in transitioning you from the block to writing meaningfully again.

Writer's Block Strategy #6

Flip writer’s block on it’s back with Flipboard. If you haven’t heard of this, then you’re missing out on an endless supply of ideas that can get you moving with respect to you writing again. There is always something to read using Flipboard.

The Writer's Block Essential 10

One particular aspect that makes this one of the best outlets to draw from for your writers block is that it doesn’t really matter what niche you’re in. This strategy is far reaching because there’s conversation going on just about everything you can imagine which is great for us as writers. In fact, I would go as far as to say that you should look at Flipboard daily, if nothing else to develop a contingency of topics to jot down so that when writers block strikes that you can easily go back to the ideas you’ve written down so that the time you experience writer’s block is minimal and short lived.

Writer's Block Strategy #7

The next strategy is about fear. Yes, write about what makes people uncomfortable. Is there something in your niche that makes your palms sweat and makes your heart beat a little faster ? There’s always something that makes people fearful no matter what the niche is. Let’s talk about one in particular in blogging and maybe you’re not scared of it, but as people we naturally fear getting in front of a camera and talking to people we don’t know. What I’m referring to is hosting webinars. Depending on the type of blogging that you do, webinars are probably the easiest ways to get your message in front of a targeted and captive audience, drive traffic and generate revenue, but most people don’t do it. Why ? Getting in front of the camera is where it starts for most. Additionally, the fear of something going wrong and it turning into a complete disaster pretty much sums up the rest of the fear on this.

With that said, what other things in your niche do people fear ? Once you identify those things, they become topics that you can write about. This is a good strategy that can cure writers block at a time or moment you find yourself experiencing it.

Writer's Block Strategy #8

The next strategy is the RE-format strategy. With that said, I really love this one because it works so well but let me emphasize that copying is a short term strategy that I will never endorse and comes with terrible long term results. So just so we’re clear, “DON’T COPY” anyone’s material. Beyond that being said, this requires that you look at what your competition is doing and write about the same material but preferably do so in a different format. The most popular formats for information are currently:

  • Blog text posts
  • Podcasts / audio posts
  • Vlogging / video blogging / video posts
  • Infographics / informational photo posts

If you’ve come across material that is of interest to you that someone else blogged about in a text blog post then podcast it/make your audio version of the same topic. If they did an audio version of it, make a video version of the material on the same topic. It’s easy and since information can be found in many different ways just as I have explained in this post for your writers block, this opens up many new doors for you to get you writing again.

Writer's Block Strategy #9

Be all about the visual representation. What I’m talking about here is utilizing Pinterest, not to seek out photos to add to your next blog post, but to peruse their massive collection of images that can help you break through your writers block. Even if you do a simple search for pins on popular topics that align with your niche, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the results and where the pins you discover may take you in developing new content ideas.

The old adage is that a picture is worth a thousand words and that couldn’t be more true in the case of all the imagery at your disposal on Pinterest.

Writer's Block Strategy #10

It’s as straight forward as it gets with writer’s block strategy. This is about the “What If” and you fill in the rest depending on your niche. What if’s exists in every second, minute, hour and moment of the day. It’s endless folks and sitting down to write down “what if” can lead to any number of writing prompts to help you in your writing woes to get your pencil moving again to be able to compose and publish your next blog post. As I sit here, I’ve got 5 What If’s ready to go:

  • What if blogging didn’t exist ?
  • What if there was such a thing as mobile blogging ?
  • What if Darren Rowse didn’t get into blogging, would there be a Problogger ?
  • What if blogging couldn’t be monetized.. would anyone blog at all ?
  • What if Google started their own blogging platform ?

I’m sure you can come up with more but writer’s block is very temporary for all writers and all you have to do is consider these strategies and add them to your workflow and I assure you confidently that you’ll never run out of things to write about.

Write on and keep this blog post handy and close for reference when you struggle for next content idea.

Drumup.io Enters The List Of Icons In Social Media Sites And Marketing Online

Drumup Social Media Sites Management And Marketing App And Platform

Source

Chances are good that you may not have heard of Drumup online. Social media management, social media tools and social media platforms are necessary for any blogger or website owner and it brings me great pleasure to give you some insight into this new tool. After being contacted by one of the owners of this platform, giving it a trial run and and checking out what this social management system had to offer, I wanted to share my experience with you and give you an overview of it.

After logging into the website, the first thing that you are going to do is build your content feed. On the first page as seen here:

Drumup Social Media Sites Management And Marketing Welcome Page

Source

You are going to see a welcome page that gives you the opportunity to add topics, keyphrases and other keywords that you want to track that is in the content you're targeting. In my own case as a blogger, I tracked blogging type keywords. It's pretty straightforward. Just start typing your keywords in and it will start to autofill suggestions for you. I'd recommend starting out with 5 to 10 keywords to track for your content. Once you're done typing in your keywords, click on the [build my content feed] button.

As seen in this image you will also see that you're given some do's and don'ts for your completing this keyword exercise as well that I thought was a helpful section in this area. The first screen is where you'll see (as seen below) keyword tips and then clicking on the keyword guide will give you the what to do and what not to do tips as mentioned in the first line of this notation on the keyword exercise.

Once you've clicked on the content feed button, you're greeted with another screen that asks you to fill out additional details:

  • Country - targets content from your country
  • Time Zone - making sure that when you schedule your posts that you're in the right time zone
  • Email - needed so that Drumup can send you information regarding your account

Of these areas, the only one that is mandatory is the email prompt. Once you've completed this, just click done and Drumup will start to fetch your content in connection to the keywords you selected. You'll be greeted with this image once you're done.

You'll then be greeted with a content feed. In my opinion, this format of receiving a feed where you filter through stories to see what you'd like to share on your social accounts is similar to Triberr. Nevertheless, the format is proven online and it works in the way of getting relevant content out to your readers.

With that said, here's an example of what you'll see when you find a story to share in your social accounts. In my case, I signed up with my Twitter account and in this image you'll see that I'm scheduling a story in my Drumup feed to share with my Twitter followers.

Drumup Social Media Sites Management And Marketing Share And Schedule Content From Feed With Social Accounts

Source

In the image you'll see some different options at your disposal such as:

  • Publishing time - you can choose from two options (automatic or custom). If you choose custom, another box will appear allowing you choose the date and time that you'd like your content to be shared on the social accounts you've set up on your Drumup account
  • Hashtag recommendations - Drumup will automatically fill in some hashtags for you but you can also remove them, leave them and add your own that you feel would align well with the content that you're scheduling
  • Repeat post - in this section you can select the number of days that you'd like to see the post shared with your social accounts and how many times you want to the repeat to occur
  • Save to content library - allows you to save your selected content to your library (can be found in the subsection in the content tab)
  • Upload image - allows you to add visuals to your content that is shared
  • Social accounts selection - select which social accounts you want your content to appear in

Once you've shared your content, you will see a notification show up in your content queue with a number indicating how many posts are still waiting to be shared. If you want to share even faster, use the 1 click option.. very useful if you don't need to preview the content and just want to schedule it right away.

You've heard me mention that you can send content from your feed to social accounts. In Drumup there are currently only 3 social accounts options (possibly a bummer for some of you with tons of accounts) that you can share content with. Personally, I'd like to see them add more to stay competitive (even though I realize theyare connected to the top 3 most used social platforms) with other similar platforms but for now their offering is limited to the following:

  1. Twitter
  2. Facebook
  3. Linkedin

As seen here in this image, you will see all 3 social accounts depicted.

Drumup Social Media Sites Management And Marketing Twitter Facebook And Linkedin Social Accounts

I do not know what the limits are on how many accounts from each platform can be added though and did not test this thoroughly. Nevertheless, I can tell you that if you have a personal Linkedin account and a business Linkedin account, you can only add one one of the two. That may or may not be an issue, but I would personally like to be able to add both so hopefully that is something that the creators of Drumup can look into. As for Facebook, since I do not currently subscribe to that platform as most of you know how I feel about Facebook if you've been following my posts for any time at all, that is a platform that I cannot speak to in regards to this overview. If you're curious about why I don't subscribe to having my own Facebook page, here's just one of many reasons as seen in this video. Additionally, I can tell you that for each social account platform that you add, you'll add keywords for that platform and it's connected accounts to connect relevant content for your feed.

With that said, lets go over the 4 main tabs that you have at your disposal in Drumup as seen in this image.

Drumup Social Media Sites Management And Marketing Activity Tabs Content Queue Create Settings

Source

You'll see the following tabs:

  • Content
  • Queue
  • Create
  • Settings

Under the content tab you will see your content feed. In the feed there are 3 subcategories that include: recommended, feeds, library.

In the recommended section, this is based off of your keywords. Use the keyword guide section that I mentioned before because it will help you more clearly laser target the content that shows up here. If you find that the content isn't that targeted then refine your keywords using the help section.

In the feeds section, if you have other feeds that you have found that you like content from, then add those feeds here and their content will show up in your content feed and you decide which posts will get scheduled. Additionally, you can set it to automatically share posts from your own blog too. I use Meetedgar for this purpose, but comparatively speaking, Drumup seems fairly comparable to that platform, but each platform has their own unique qualities, however, I do like the simplicity of the Drumup platform in comparison, hence the review and providing another option to my readership for scheduling posts and sharing content.

We've now reached the create tab as seen below:

Drumup Social Media Sites Management And Marketing Create A Tweet To Schedule And Post

Source

You will notice that you can compose a message that can be posted to the social accounts that you create. It will show you a post count and we all know that Twitter is 140 characters so in this box if you're posting to Twitter keep in mind to keep your message within those constraints, but if you're posting to Linkedin you know that the post is not limited to 140 characters and the same should be kept in mind if you use this section to post to Facebook.

In the settings area, this will show you information on your keywords, the number of curated posts per day which is used for the 1 click scheduler, your country, time zone, negative keywords which is nothing more than keywords that you don't want to see in your suggested stories (the content feed).. In lamen's terms.. this is how you filter your content feed even more. Additionally, you can specify whether you want to get top stories of the day by email and how often you get them (e.g. daily, 2x's per week or weekly.. you can even unsubscribe in this area too).

The last sections to address are:

  • Upgrade / pricing schedule
  • Referrals
  • Support

While you get a limited trial run with Drumup which is currently a generous 14 days, once you decide to make the jump to upgrading to a paid account, their pricing schedule is as follows:

Drumup Social Media Sites Management And Marketing Upgrade Pricing Guide And Schedule

Source

As you can see the Pro plan is priced at $49 per month which is likely to be sufficient for most and there are options for those that require a bit more out of Drumup priced between $99 and $199 per month.

On the subject of referrals, Drumup does provide a unique referral link which I have used in this post. If you choose to participate in the referral process you will have to click on the "refer & get $10" link and then click on the "know more" link. This will take you to your referral dashboard where you can track any activity related to your referrals. This is where you will locate your unique tracking link, but this area is still somewhat confusing to me since it would seem that there's a referral area and a "separate section" for affiliates. Personally, I'd like to see this be one area instead of two, but those are just my thoughts on it.

If you'd like to become an affiliate, just click on the link at the bottom of the page and tell them how you will promote their product and Drumup will respond back to you with an approval or disapproval of your request in 48 hours to be able to participate in their affiliate program.

As for support, there are 3 areas here: contact us, FAQ and the keyword guide page I mentioned earlier. The contact us page is pretty standard. Just fill in the details and they will get back to shortly as they state on their page. I'd like them to specify a time frame: whether that be 24 hours, 48 hours or 72 so that anyone utilizing this page to communicate has some idea as to how long they will have to wait for a reply.

On the FAQ page, there are a number of areas they address so hopefully if you run into a problem, you find the solution on this page.

The last area of the support page is the keyword help guide which I have referenced several times in the post. I would highly recommend checking out this area as it will help you in better targeting what you're going to see in your content recommendation feed.

Drumup appears to be a solid social media management platform (can also be found in an app version on the Google play store and Apple App Store) to connect your readers with relevant content for your social accounts and it gets my thumbs up hence the recommendation and overview that I have made here in this post. Try it out and after 14 days if you're not satisfied, you've lost nothing at all. So far from what I have seen in my activity on Drumup, I've already gotten some referral activity from my followers liking / reposting what I'm sharing through this platform which from my perspective is certainly a good sign that Drumup is on the right track with their product.

Eblogger Blooger - A Misspellings And Misspelled Words Post

Oops I Did It Wrong

Source

Misspelled

Have you ever heard the term "eblogger" or blooger or bloogging ? Lets be honest.. it really looks like a big bag of garbled mess with the exception to eblogger which kinda make sense. Interestingly enough, these are associated with real words that people do look for, but they are intentionally misspelled. Your question might be.. well why would you misspell them on purpose. It's not everyone’s cup of tea especially now that Google has caught on to this, particularly for those who abuse it, but it still remains very common online and for the sake of being transparent, it is a content related tactic used to drive traffic to website pages.

People misspell words all the time and as you can imagine there are plenty of us out there that aren't so great at spelling, but hey.. that's okay, even if you misspell a word, you still want to find the related content for the searches that you're performing right ?

For the longest time, the only method that we had for searching was to “type” in a query. Just think about this for a minute... How often have you typed in a word and something else was typed in that was not what you were intending to type ? No matter how accurate a typist you may be, even you are prone to mistakes.. we all are. Chances are good that if you’ve done it, someone else has done the very same thing too. What happens is that now there are “x” number of searches that are done for a keyword that is misspelled. Kind of crazy, but it’s true. There are keywords where “thousands to hundreds of thousands” of people are typing in what they assume to be is the right keyword and are in fact typing in the misspelled version of it. For example, in my research, the keyword “googl” for what people are actually search for.. that being “google” is typed in without the “e” over 800K times a month ! For Pete’s sake.. that’s a ton of volume for a misspelled keyword. Wow…  In one more case, just dropping off the last “s” in the keyword.. “wordpress” sees over 2400 misspellings per month. Are you starting to get the picture ?

Big Numbers Keyword Searches

Source

Misspelling

So one may wonder, how does it drive traffic to your content as well. Clearly in those two examples alone, you can see the impact of 2400 searches per month is nothing to dismiss. Even getting exposure to a fraction of the traffic from a misspelled word means additional eyes on your related content. Clearly in the first example, just a fraction of that traffic as well can be a big deal too. Out of curiosity, I performed one more search for this particular keyword: yotube.. a misspelling for Youtube and in that research found that there are 450k searches done per month by users that have misspelled Youtube. These keywords are basically what you would call high trend keywords. While I’m sure your mind is probably racing considering all the different words that have been and can be spelled incorrectly that may drive droves of traffic to your pages, also realize that we’re not talking apples to apples here. Not every instance will mean more traffic. Can these kind of words bring traffic to a website.. ? Absolutely. Now is it the best idea.. ? I certainly would not make it a staple of your traffic strategy or recommend it be used on an even semi-consistent basis, but again from an informational standpoint, keywords are going to get misspelled and as you’ve seen.. depending on the keyword, can yield quite a few searches that you may be able to get access to. Also keep in mind that when considering the implementation of such an idea that Google does provide the “actual” spelling of the word if you have indeed typed it in incorrectly which means that the user will click that suggestion and likely be given results that do not include your website on the first 10 results on the first page for that search. That is just another consideration to be mindful of and of course is.. as I like to say.. food for thought.

Misspellings In Google Keywords

Source

Nevertheless, misspellings are typically not something that people are doing purposefully either. That’s probably the most interesting thing about it. One of the core of the functions of the internet is to allow users to perform searches and provide users with related content that matches what they are looking for. The one thing that has come along of recent that has been more helpful, especially to those that are more prone to misspell words than others, is the ability to orally dictate those searches which drastically decreases the chances for misspellings of the words that are in those searches being performed. With that said, and it’s not really anything earth shattering, but people haven’t really transitioned to speaking out searches as opposed to continuing to type them in. It’s pretty fair to say that we have been conditioned to typing out searches rather than speaking them since we’ve done it for so long before there was any real alternative that was embedded into everyday searching activities. This ultimately means that in those numbers that I shared with you earlier in the post regarding the terms: googl, wordpres and yotube, the searches and misspellings of those words aren’t going to be changing drastically anytime soon. However, as people do make the transition to speaking in searches and not conducting them on traditional keywords, I would imagine that you’ll start to see those numbers decline gradually over time.

Misspelled Word Abuse Penalized

I Got Caught Misspelling Words On Google

Source

As we close out this post on misspelled words, I think that you’ll find it interesting that in my research I have found that there are approximately 10 million words that are spelled incorrectly in Google alone everyday. Let me repeat that for you.. 10 million folks PER DAY ! The one thing that I haven’t touched on is that even though the original spelling of a keyword may generate, lets say.. 3 times the search volume for the keyword, the right way it’s supposed to be spelled, even if the wrong version only generates half of that.. the reality is that there’s likely to be a lot less competition for that misspelled keyword as well because most people don’t want to optimize for the wrong version and quite frankly "shouldn't". As mentioned before, Google is aware of this tactic that people have been known to exploit in their search engine and will penalize websites found to have "excessive" (and I'm not sure what definitively qualifies as excessive) misspellings in their content.

Nevertheless, again while I don’t recommend misspelling words on purpose, I like being transparent and want you to know that there are opportunities that exist on the misspelled keywords front but as with anything, there’s always the good and there’s always the bad as well. So be wise and careful about the development of your content and pay attention to how you’re spelling the words that you intend to use too.

How Long Is 1000 Words ? What's Up With All The Curiosity

1000 Words

Source

How Long Is 1000 Words

So I came across this question, “How long is 1000 words” ? Do you realize that there’s almost 100 million pages of results in Google for this question alone ? If your jaw dropped on that one, I completely understand. That’s pretty wild to me too. So why is there all this curiosity about the 1000 word yardline ? Whether you’re a student, a writer, blogger or a regular Joe that is into content marketing, I’m going to be very transparent about this. Writing 1000 words is not difficult to do. It may seem daunting when you look at that number thinking, how in the world am I going to come up with enough content to meet that kind of goal, I assure you that focusing on the number shouldn’t be your top priority. The plan for “how” you’re going to get there is going to help you immensely and when that plan has been developed, meeting and even surpassing one thousand words will be entirely doable and totally within your reach.

When I started this blog, as I have mentioned in another post that is somewhat related to what we're talking about here, I was replying to an article I had seen from Kissmetrics on article length. That blog post can be found here: Kissmetrics Post.

I talked about how my first blog post wasn’t even 100 words. What makes me laugh is that when I started to read about how content needs to be more "long form" as that is content that others tend to share more frequently.. the thought of anything in upwards of 1000 words, which was a far cry from how I had started seemed a bit overwhelming. So if thinking about putting that many words on a page makes your palms sweat, I assure you that with a little patience and focus on “knocking it out” you will find that, as I’ve said in the opening of this post that it’s very doable.

Writing Tips

Source

To me writing is like having a conversation. Granted it’s not entirely the same, but it’s not really all that different. We all have something to say and sometimes communication is recreational and then there are times when we’re obligated to put words on a page too and let's not forget all those other times as well.

Writing Structure And Process

Advice that I can offer is to put your thoughts together first. If you walk into this without any structure, it’ll be that much harder to get started and that can be very unnerving. Additionally, on the subject of structure, what I’m about to get into is a method that I have used in the past to put papers together and yes, blog posts too. Writing is writing and some people have more of an affinity for it and others struggle, but planning and process can simplify long form writing more than you know. With that said, doing the following may be something you’ll find helpful:

  • Make a folder on your computer and then decide on your topic.
  • Look for what other people are saying about the topic that you want to write about.
  • Don’t copy or plagiarize.. that's a big no no ! I’m just saying it so that we get that out of the way. The purpose in seeing what others are saying about what you’re writing about isn’t to copy their thoughts, but to avoid rehashing content that has been mulled over time and time again. If you want someone to listen to what you have to say, knowing what has been said before is important, but it’s even more important to use “your voice” to communicate on that topic in your own way with your own words. The added bonus is that it gives you ideas that you may not have had before on what to include in what you’re about to write about too.
  • I would get 5-6 articles to reference that have material on what you’re going to write about.
  • As you start writing, stick to 4 - 6 lines per paragraph and be sure to refer back to the articles that you’ve picked up that are related to the content you’ll be writing about.
  • Come up with sub headings to further break down your thoughts and material into digestible pieces for anyone that will be reading your content.
  • Also keep in mind that being able to reach 1000 words can be done in less than one and a half pages (1.5pgs) using just about any typefont that is acceptable for blog posts, papers or other document that requires some degree of formal formatting.

In the event that your content is thin, you can use results of polls, surveys or feedback from videos or other comments left on blogs or places where there has been discussion on the topic that you’re writing in reference to. This will allow you to continue to add content in cases where you’ve just run out of things to say. If you find data in graphs or tables, this is yet another strategy that can be used to keep your content flowing and provides you even more opportunities to get to and potentially surpass that 1000 word goal as well.

Writing Tips Learning To Write

Source

Don’t get me wrong, you’re likely not going to become a person that starts to churn out one thousand word documents overnight just because of the structure and tips that I’ve provided you with. However, that’s not the point of this. The point is to get you moving in that direction because ultimately following this guideline and planning structure gives you a higher chance at success. Writing long form does indeed take more time but that’s the kind of content that provides greater insight as opposed to other literature that you come across that doesn’t have the same kind of content like substance.

Your focus on the “number” won’t be nearly as helpful as focusing on the “how” to get there. Now that you have a plan, the next critical step in this process is to start employing the plan and moving from your comfort zone that is writing just a few words, to writing a lot more. Ironically enough, this post is about how to write 1000 words and you’ve just read that many words in this post. Reading this didn’t take long and writing 1000 words didn’t take long either.

Follow the structure and this plan and you will enjoy the satisfaction that comes with developing a new skill.
