Happy New Year!
If someone had said, “You’re going to be writing one new blog post about your writing journey every week for 105 weeks in a row,” I would have either laughed or cried.
Well, here we are!
So it’s time to look back, as I hand over the baton to our next Reality Blogger, Suzanna Fitzgerald.
Some Nervous Moments
If someone asks you to write a weekly blog post, jump at the chance.
Your first thought will be, “How could I possibly come up with something new every week? My life isn’t that interesting.” Well, you might surprise yourself.
For me, topic ideas flew thick and fast… at first. At one stage, I was 12 blog posts ahead of schedule!
At the other end of the scale, I’ll admit to some nervous moments when my mind was completely devoid of new ideas… especially during the uncertainty of the pandemic. I was simply keeping my head above water, only just keeping up due to something I’d never encountered before — writer’s block.
For some reason, many people romanticize writer’s block. Like it’s a badge of honor… a torture any great writer must endure and push through.
What a load of rubbish!
Writer’s block is simply a state of mind you need to get out of as quickly as possible. And it can hit anyone, great writer or tabloid hack. Just be aware it will likely hit when you least expect. My solution?
Use Heather Robson’s fast writing technique. It’s brilliant.
So where can you find inspiration for those blogs you need to get out every week?
Inspiration from the Mundane
Take inspiration from what’s happening around you… in nature, in your family life, wins and setbacks at work, even music, movies, and books you love.
While my brief for the Reality Blog was broadly based around building a Money-Making Website, I’ve added a few personal moments.
