After all, writing is easy: if you can talk, you can write.
Unfortunately, many writers (especially new writers) want to make writing HARD. I sympathize. I used to be that way, many years ago. In those long ago days, after three hours of writing my eyeballs rolled around in my head, I had an incipient migraine, and it wasn't worth your life to ask me "how's your writing going?"
So let's look at how to make writing hard for yourself.
How to Make Writing Hard
* Obsess about writing, figuring that you have to write whatever you're writing the "right" way. This leads to unbelievable silliness, like squabbles about which fonts to use when printing out your novel's proposal package. (I kid you not -- this happens. Check any writer's forum.)
* Write three paragraphs of your latest opus, and decide they're the WRONG words. They don't grip; they're completely insipid... On the strength of these three paragraphs, you decide you CAN'T WRITE. (You're not wrong. Because after those three paragraphs, you stop writing.)
* Assign all-knowing, all-seeing, all-understanding god-like status to editors and other prospective buyers of your writing. When an editor ignores you (very likely) or sends you a message saying "not for us", you immediately assume that this means that you will never be able to sell your writing. Further, you also assume that you're not a writer, everyone hates you, and you might as well forget about writing as a career. (Um... It seems pointless to say this, but editors are just people, trying to hang onto their jobs. Some editors are wonderful; some are not.)
There are endless ways to make writing hard for yourself, so before we all burst into tears or take up serious drinking as a hobby, let's see the flip side: how to make writing easy for yourself.
How to Make Writing Easy
* Commit to writing as a practice. Generate text, every day. Schedule this text generation, just as you schedule everything else. Then when it's time to write, just write, realizing that if it turns out in a few days or weeks that today's output needs deleting, just delete it, without drama.
* Forget about "good" or "bad." Focus on results.
* Learn how to manage your mind, so that you're cheerfully creative and so that writing is FUN for you. (Yes, you can do this, I promise, just use self hypnosis and affirmations.)
I know that there are many more writers who make writing hard for themselves that those happy souls who know writing is both FUN and EASY.
Therefore I've started working on a series of mind-management tools for writers. There's no need to make writing hard for yourself, and yes, you're the person who's making it hard for yourself. Writing should be fun, and easy, and when you have the right tools, it is.
The first of these new mind management tools is my free report: "The Self Hypnosis Money Tree: Relax And Write Your Way To Riches" -- get it now, and start making writing easy for yourself.
