How to start writing

If you had an urge, a surge in mood, a longing to pen down your thoughts and you shied away. Let’s see what we can change in the mindset to cross the barrier. First of all it is is not easy to write, at least for me. Heck it is difficult to start anything new. The amount of resistance is immense. Let’s hack together at some of them.

Start small:

Lets’ just write down a few sentences. Lets’ cap it to 3 sentences. Remember those mini assignments “Write 5 lines on cow”.

Book a slot for writing. Start your calendar app and book a recurring slot for writing. This would be a dedicated window for writing. Bring it in your routine.

  • Writing phase: Dump your thoughts don’t enter into the edit mode. Just keep writing. When you stop for editing you break the thought flow. Modern day editors are also not helpful with distracting red lines and auto correct suggestions. No wonder lot of artists are seen with typewriters or pen and paper to write in the movies.
  • Editing phase: Edit like you have not written it. Go over the documents mercilessly, removing what is not required. Remember all the good tools you learned while reading. Bring them here.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
