I enjoy writing immensely and I often wish I had the opportunity to make it a more significant activity in my life.
I would not consider myself a great writer though (I’ll steer clear of judging myself publicly). Some problems I’ve noted are:
- Lack of focus in my work. Often my writing reflects my thought processes. Random and prone to tangents.
- Lack of knowledge. I simply don’t know grammar rules, creative writing techniques, different constructs I can use et. al.
- Time constraints. Good writing takes time to develop. It involves a significant amount of prooofreading, rewriting, refocus and more. If you have one hour a day to get content on the screen you have two options – both unpalatable:
- Significantly cut the content
- Skip the after work
You could of course, significantly cut the number of entries you produce…
I think the point I should focus on first and have the most likelihood of fixing involves focus.
And I need help.
So if you guys think that my entries are sprawling – by all means let me know! I always appreciate feedback.
That’s all for now. You may resume with your day.
