Something from nothing

Last Update: November 08, 2013

I don't quite know what to name this blog, because at this point in time I am not too sure exactly what it will be about. So I am just going to start writing and see what I can come up with . That's what I'm doing right now writing to come up with something to write about. Isn't that a little odd? I don't know. I think maybe it is.

This is my thought process up till here::I sit around thinking about what I'm going to write without actually writing anything. So this is sort of an experiment in putting down the thoughts that go through my head while I am trying to decide on my topic. What do you think so far? Lame? Thought provoking? Interesting? Boring? Hmmmmmm????

I'm currently watching Gold Rush.

MY ALL TIME FAVORITE BERING SEA GOLD JUST CAME ON.NEW SEASON.GONNA WATCH.FINISH THIS IN A MINUTE.I like to watch them strike it rich.Or not.

OK now I've muted the TV. It was everything that I hoped it would be. Wonder if I can find a niche in gold mining. Maybe I'm kinda mining for gold with my websites. Just another kind of gold miner. I am not a greedy person. just want enough so my mom and I can live comfortably. That's all I need. But I want so much more.

Sitting here writing about how I want so much more, kinda makes me focus harder on the writing. I know I can do the writing. It just takes me a little longer to complete an article. The writing streak I currently experienced, produced 4 articles in five days and that made me feel good. I also feel they were quality articles. So speed and quality. This a sign of skill. I would like to be able to do this at least once a day.

I am excited because this is what I have been striving for. Skill in the writing department.. This is the first thing I've written in the past two days. and it feels good to get some words out. Skilled or unskilled, I would like writing to become like a second nature to me because nothing would thrill me more than to write an excellent article at least 90% of the time. Or to just belly up to the keyboard and start whippin out the words at any given moment

I'd like to be able to tell people I write for a living. I've wanted to say that for a very long time, but was one of those things I thought would never happen. now I am closer than I ever thought I would be. In fact I decided yesterday that is what I am now going to say when somebody asks me what I do.Maybe have some business cards printed up. You know?.

So in the space of 7 small paragraphs my little experiment here went from being about nothing to being about something other than nothing.

I do believe I have taught myself a lesson, and came up with an idea for my other website.

Once again, thank you for the ears that listen to my babble.

Gonna go see if my brother has anything to drink.

In the end it seems that writing is your thing!! :-) Thanks for your great post!

In my opinion what you did right here is very difficult. You started writing from nothing! And in fact this is what we should all do when trying to create content: we should start writing!

I am not saying that planning is not crucial. But on the other hand, sometimes we spend too much time in planning and we never start with the actual writing.

Another thing that usually stops us from generating loads of good quality content is the fact that we always want to create the perfect masterpiece in our first attempt. Being a perfectionist is not a bad thing, but when it comes to content writing perhaps it doesn't help too much, especially when all we try to do is to put down a first draft of our content.

The solution is right there in front of us......and you pointed this out to all of us very clearly!

....just start writing!

lolz...I liked reading this..whatever it was...your thoughts at that time,something we never take notice of is what we are thinking...

maybe if we will start writing anything that comes up..we will go mad..because mind chatters so much..but when we actually start to write... things do start making sense..l

lemme tell you most of the masterpieces were never perfectly executed how they were planned..so next time don't spend too much time on thinking what to write..just write..that is what I do most of the time..title in a minute and body in the next..I don't think I write that bad...lol..as I didn't plan to write this much also...:D
