I Fucking HATE Everything I Write

You’ve said it.

You know that feeling, (No, not the one that requires sexual healing), the one where every time you sit down to write you absolutely HATE EVERY FUCKING THING you write down. And that’s putting it mildly.

It happens to everyone. It’s why people go months without writing on their blog, it’s why people don’t update their Facebook more than once a day… after a while of constantly putting out on endless stream of content you just run out of interesting shit to say. Happens to the greatest, no one is immune.

But the problem is this: YOU CANNOT STOP.

You have to put out content, a shitload of it, in order to keep your business running. And for fuck’s sake, at least 20% should be somewhat interesting to someone out there (even if it isn’t to you). 

 

Here’s An Idea (Or 5)

Make A Plan– this doesn’t always help you like what you write, but it prevents moments spent in front of the computer screen staring blankly for hours with no idea where to start. Plan your content out for the month and see how it goes.

Write About What You Like– if all else fails write about something you like. You may be selling roofing services (the most boring industry known to mankind) but you are selling it to people who have interests that span WAY beyond that. Find out what else your market may be interested in. No one will be mad they missed your latest blog about the different types of shingles. Trust me.

Publish It Anyway– get handy with that publish button. Write it and publish. It’s a blog, not groundbreaking journalism. And although your content is important, the main premise is to share ideas, not win the Pulitzer prize.

Write Then Edit– nothing ruins your writing flow more than stopping to re-read and edit. Just write. You can always go back and edit later.

Flex Your Writing Muscles– My favorite thing to do is copy blog posts I like from other blogs onto a sheet of paper. It helps get my mind geared up to write something clever and fun. You could even enroll in a writing class, learn copywriting, or find some online exercises geared toward helping you write.

Here’s Another Idea: Enjoy your fucking day. (And maybe get some of the sexual healing you were thinking about earlier 😉 )

Oh and sign up for my emails. That’s as convincing I will get.
