Yesterday, my good friend Jan Verhoeff and I had a spicy little lunch at one of our favorite Chinese restaurants. We were both a bit spent, it’s the end of the week and we’ve worked hard as usual. Then Jan says to me…..”I posted 74 articles.” I said “This week?” She says, “No, on Monday.” WOWEE. You see, my friend is a webmaster, blogger, coach, an article marketer and author and maintains many websites for clients as well as a few of her own. But, when she told me this and I realized that I hadn’t posted in 2 weeks, I had to sit back and think a moment.
Why is is so easy for some and so hard for others to write? Even just a few paragraphs are hard to punch out sometimes. We have it in our heads. I mean, we’re reading and researching and taking it all in all the time. Why is it so hard to get it on paper or into our computer?
I’ve come to realize, at least for me, that it’s only a matter of time. I have to take the time to just do it. And, so much of the time, thoughts that I think are worth sharing via writing come to me at 3 and 4 o’clock in the morning. Like this morning, I had a vision of Jan hunched over her computer working her fingers to the bone to get out those 74 articles. And, when I wake early with thoughts rolling around in my head, sometimes I take a stab at scribbling notes on the pad next to my bed, sometimes I think that I’ll remember in a couple of hours. Most times, I don’t.
So, here I am, going to openly renounce that I, Diane C. Brown, will speak on paper or type into my computer, my words at least twice a week. Not once a day like I originally wanted, but just two times per week. When I set the lofty goal of every day or almost every day, I stifled myself like I often do. Too high expectations….. Anyone else have that fault sometimes? I mean, if I can talk, I can write.
So there. This is the new dawn of a new era. Jan, I will never be like you and that’s okay. You are so gifted with words. Me not so much. But, I figure if I can speak it, I can write it.
I promise, my next article will be more relevant to what’s happening in more people’s lives. Not everyone wants to show the world their thoughts, right? I know that quality is key. As Jan puts it in her article: “Without quality, you’re going to miss the point and many opportunities.” Jan provides in many of her writings, easy writing and article marketing tips.
