People that have really developed a great blog early in their writing careers all have one thing in common: a natural desire to tell others what compels and drives them as individuals. Another major thing they all have in common is the ability to focus on the job at hand and keep focused on writing their blog like they have no other common goal or task.
That is what you need to do as a blog owner as well. If you are distracted while you’re creating a fresh topic on your daily blog, you’re writing will never be focused like a laser, which is the only way to bring in new viewers to your site. This article will help everyone reading bloggingtips.com to find that focus and start off a new way of writing that will compel new visitors to read your blog every single day.
1 ISOLATE YOURSELF WHEN YOU FIRST START WRITING
Isolation can be a very good thing when it comes to writing techniques. If you are constantly interrupted by your kids yelling for dinner, phone calls from the bank requiring you to open a new bank account or having to feed your pets lunch, for example, you will never be able to get those creative juices flowing that you really need to finish off that book or article whose deadline is looming out there like a vulture in the Sahara desert.
Make arrangements with your family first before you attempt to get in the creative “Zen-like” state you need to be in. Tell them you need four hours alone in your office with no interruptions at all, or make sure you will not get hungry in the next two hours and have to take a food break. If you fall into the creative cloud within a few minutes, but then have to go and make a sandwich after writing just a few sentences, you have effectively ended your creative streak. Make sure that this does not happen to you. Make every possible arrangement to keep that Zen focus going at all costs!
2 COMMIT TO A BLOCK OF TIME SO YOUR CREATIVE IDEAS CAN ACCUMULATE FASTER
If you’ve never been able to get into that creative mode in which ideas come to you faster than a speeding bullet, it is a great idea to allocate at least two hours of your working day to examine just how long it takes you to enter this creative state of mind. It takes at least 20 minutes for most people to enter the most creative state of mind that they can possibly have, so your time frame should be no different.
You have to put yourself into a deep concentration level first by examining the subject matter you will be writing about in the first 20 minutes of this task. Lock onto any research materials you have, such as websites that discuss the subject, books lying around that have the subject matter in them, as well as newspaper articles. After you have pulled the essence out of these research materials, begin to then concentrate on filling that white computer screen with quality content and you will be on your way in achieving great success with your creative ideas flowing out of you like a river.
3 MAKE THE GOAL OF PUTTING YOUR CREATIVE IDEAS TO PAPER A WORTHY ONE
Unless your creative writing on a certain subject has a high level of difficulty involved with it, you should not even attempt to put yourself in a creative “cloud”. Your brain will simply shut off and say to itself “There really is no need for a high level of creativity to be used here. Call me when something more demanding comes along.”
On the other hand, if you feel that this writing task is too difficult for you to handle, no Zen-like creative ideas will come out of you at all. This difficulty state will becoming a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy that will manifest itself into your losing the challenge of putting your creative ideas on paper. To lessen the difficulty factor of the task at hand, try just writing one chapter of your e-book instead of two. Or instead of putting too much pressure on finishing your article this instance, just finish up two paragraphs. By lessening your pressure that you are putting on yourself, you will allow your creative ideas to flow out of your head at a much greater pace.
4 IS YOUR MOTIVE FOR WRITING COMPELLING ENOUGH?
Your reason for achieving a creative work flow needs to be important enough in the first place or you will never be able to gain this creative idea flow at all. If you don’t really care about completing a certain writing task, you will never be able to get those creative juices flowing. If you are forced by somebody else to write about a topic you have disdain for, you need to find another way to complete this task, as creative ideas will never come to you if you hate your subject matter.
High levels of creativity will only come to you if your motive in completing the task if extremely important and you really enjoy writing about the topic. The best way to compel yourself to a new creative level by writing about something you don’t care for is by examining the possible benefits to yourself and others when you do actually complete the writing task. That kind of passionate writing will enable your creative ideas to come to you without any obstacles standing in their way.
Putting yourself into a highly creative state of mind is an acquired skill that anyone can achieve if they really want it. Unleash your creative ideas today by developing your own technique to reach that Zen-state that will help your writing career really take off.
