An Unimaginary Mind

Last Update: September 25, 2016


Everyday I log into WA with a plan. Follow the to do list created and stay on schedule. As a whole it has suited me well. Then #5 comes....

1.Site Feedback Provide site feedback for 10 other websites

2. Site Comments- Same here, 10 comments

3. Training-Back to learning

4. Implement Training

5. Stare at the screen


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?

Hey Jason, I have a similar problem, I was never perfect in writing at school, and one post can take me 5 or 6 hours as well, even though I know what I want to write about. So really I otally understand you.

I also started a few days ago, so I still don´t have a perfect solution for our problem, but I just try to suppress that pessimist in me and try to be positive all the time.

I still thinking about my goals and believe in myself in achieving my goals.

And there is always will be people who are going to read your website, so there is no need to lack the confidence here. Internet is full of people who constantly looking for something, so even though there are a lot of people who write about something similar like you, there are also a lot of people who will search and read your knowledge, I believe in this on 100% and so should you.

And sometimes when the words just don´t want to come out of your mind no matter how hard you try, you go do something else and the ideas and words will come out eventually. One time I was just sitting in front of monitor, trying to write one post and still can´t come with something reasonable, so I watched a movie, relaxed myself, and after that I suddenly knew what and how to write it.

No need to be in stress or presure that you MUST write something. If it just doesn´t work now, leave it be, distract yourself, and ideas will come eventually.

I hope I helped you a litlle bit.

Just dont stop believe in youself and success will come.
