“Don’t be a writer, be writing.” – William Faulkner
Writing is like a muscle and with regular exercise, you’ll improve your ability to compel readers with your message and prevent those muscles from seizing up.
Make exercising your writing muscles a daily habit by incorporating this easy Weekly Writing Plan into your routine. This routine starts you off with 1 article per week. However, you wouldn’t use the same weight every day to strengthen your muscles, would you? Continue challenging your writing muscles by increasing the amount of articles published per week to improve your writing skills as well as build your exposure and authority.
It really does adds up! Check it out:
- 1 article per week for one year = 52
- 2 articles per week for one year = 104
- 3 articles per week for one year = 156
Start writing now using this Weekly Writing Plan and be on your way to the top of your niche! Simply click on the graphic below to view in a new window and then click the image to zoom in or out.
Day 1: Outline
- Create a Catchy Title that Hooks Readers
- Write Dynamic Subheadings that Organize Your Article
- Establish Your Call-to-Action
Take a Break!
Focus on another task! Once you’ve written down your topic’s intention in an outline, allow your topic to sit in your head and even sleep on it. You will unconsciously “work on it” as your brain processes new and old information: what you already know about the topic, relevant information, experiences, memories, and more.
Day 2: Write
- Review & Revise Your Outline for Missing Elements
- Fill the Outline in with Quality, Juicy Details & Descriptions
- Focus on Writing
- Don’t Stop or Pause to Consider What You Wrote
- We Mean It! Write Now. Edit Later
Take a Break!
Once you’ve finished writing, focus on something else – it doesn’t have to be complicated, just something that will pull your attention. You need to step outside of your power-writing mode by recharging your brain on another task.
Day 3: Revise & Proofread
- Pretend It’s Not Your Piece
- Trim Superfluous Text
- Seek Out Holes in Logic
- Revise as Necessary
- Proofread for Spelling and Grammar
- Repeat Steps 1-5 as Necessary
Take a Break!
Focus on a positive activity or thought. Day 3 can be grueling and humbling, so it’s important to reaffirm your strengths and remember the good things.
Day 4: Submit & Plan Release
- Read Through the Article One More Time
- Submit to EzineArticles.com
