“The most difficult and complicated part of the writing process is the beginning.” – A. B. Yehoshua
It’s the truth. If you were to tell yourself that you were going to be writing 1000 words a day, you might just quit before you even start. You have to ease yourself into it. Writing doesn’t just come naturally for everyone.
It takes time, exercise and persistence. You have to develop your writing muscles as James Altucher always says. It’s the consistency that makes you a better writer, the deep chain of commitment. Start small and finish big.
Today’s episode is a solo round where I shed some light on how you too can start writing an average of 1000 words per day. I’m saying average as it’s easier to keep up with that than setting a minimum for yourself.
In this episode I lay out a few simple steps you can follow to start writing on a daily basis and perhaps write your first best seller within the next 3 months. I don’t go into the technicalities of writing, but only overview the process of how I’m able to write more by averaging a certain word count per day.
Now this doesn’t have to be articles that you write for the public, part of your book or a fancy script. It could be your dairy, a memo or anything for that matter. Just start writing today. It’s easier to get started than you think and in this episode I show you how.
Your writing voice is the deepest possible reflection of who you are. The job of your voice is not to seduce or flatter or make well-shaped sentences. In your voice, your readers should be able to hear the contents of your mind, your heart, your soul. Meg Rosoff
You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence. – Octavia Butler
