Buffy writes, “My problem is that it can take me several days to write even one short article. How in the world am I ever going to be able to do this article marketing thing if it takes me forever to write a single article?”
Good question… let’s put on our night running shoes and go slay some writers block demons: First, if you are taking several days to write a short 500 word article, girlfriend what are you doing with your time? Do this: Get a stop watch near your computer. Set an intention and goal to write 200 words per hour (to start with). Break it up into 50 words per 15 minute segments if you have to. Force yourself to crank out the first 15 minutes of this writing exercise.
Writing articles is like any muscle…the more you use it, the stronger you become at writing quality content very quickly. Personally, the only time I slow down my writing pace is when I’m lost, unfocused, and don’t have a clear purpose for why I’m writing. When that happens, I take a few steps back, look at the big picture to consider why the article I’m writing is important and who I’m hoping to influence or impact with the content.
How about you? Do you have a cure for the slow article writing blues?
