Good Day Class
Today we are honored to have a ghost writer as our substitute teacher (guest writer). What I’m not sure of is, if he’s a ghost writer, is he really here, or is it just an illusion? I’ll let you decide.
The floor is yours.
My lesson starts with a short story.
Let’s get started.
When I reflect back on my first days blogging, it is easy to recall one of my more regular fears. I remember often thinking, “How will I ever be able to think of something to write each and every day? What if I simply run out of new things to say?”
Turns out, finding something new to discuss five days a week wasn’t nearly as difficult as deciding what not to talk about.
We are thoughtful creatures. As soon we allow the gears of our minds to start turning, the machinery will rarely reel back on its own. For humans, the production of thought is as regular as the drawing breath; one only expires alongside the other.
As I have added more to my plate and the need for writing at a single site has bloomed into the constant requirement for content, I have needed new methods to get more done in less time without sacrificing the quality of my work.
?How do I do this?
Sometimes, I write my articles in sets. Say, for example, I am hired as a ghostwriter to do a series of articles for a blog about baseball. Rather than start from scratch, I allow my mind to wander around the subject until I’ve gathered a handful of ideas. I then write an entire series at once.
Even without having to juggle a dozen different drafts on any given day, this is a method that can allow anyone to get more done in less time without a sacrifice to their quality.
Getting air born is the hard part. There’s no reason not to fly once you’re there.
- Is it easy to imagine your output would increase if you were to batch your writing?
- Do you feel like the quality of your articulation would suffer or benefit from batching your posts?
- Do you think that batching posts could lead to an increase in time that could be spent in your comment section or perhaps reading the blogs of others?
Raise you hand and share your thoughts.
