My imaginary mind doesn't exist. I fail at content simply because I fail to know what to write. I know what I want to write but it just doesn't come out, or come out right anyways. I know my writing can't be too bad right? I do have multiple posts on page 1 already, however,I chalk that up to the "low hanging fruit" side of things than i do my pulitzer prize winning writing abilities :) That's the pessimist in me.
I want to do things for my readers, or lack thereof, like a free ebook.I want multiple pages of content. Hopefully to attract more readers. Again, the unimaginary mind kicks in and I have no clue what to put in the pages or ebook. I mean, I have ideas, but lack the confidence to believe people would actually want to read it.
I consistently over think what I am writing. What should take me an hour or two to write after my research is complete takes sometimes 5 or 6 hours, sometimes longer. The wheels just keep turning.
How have you gotten over these feelings and obstacles as a content writer?
