No matter how long you've been writing, you never get to a point of permanent kickassery.
Or, at least I haven't yet. Maybe in 30 years. But probably not.
I just sent out Issue #11 of my Sunday Morning Marketing Dispatch and, if you're a subscriber, you may have noticed it's terribly... un-tight.
I usually write every day. But recently, for whatever reason, I haven't.
Just fell out of it, somehow.
And now, when I sat down to write... it felt a little strange. Oops. That's dangerous, especially when you get paid for writing stuff.
I often go into a weird flow and words come out, and usually sounding pretty good.
But still, for me, just taking a week off writing coated my writing muscles with a layer of rust.
The solution, of course, is to write more often.
But the most dangerous part of all this is that I didn't really notice until just now when I FELT how weird it was to write.
I just slowly, gradually wrote less and less until one day I went through the whole day not writing anything at all. And that became normal. And when you don't write ANYTHING for a whole week or two... things get a little messy when you start again.
Ironically enough, this blog post is written way better than the newsletter I sent out. Although the content is probably better in the newsletter.
Anyway, I just wanted to put some words on the page. This is starting to feel good again.
Happy late thanksgiving everybody. I know all you americans go crazy for it. :)
