I wrote an article of over 1000 words- Success!

Last Update: October 29, 2021

Hello to my WA family, hope all is well with you.

It is so hard to write articles regarding recipes. I can never get the word count above 600 to 700 words. There is only so much you can say about a recipe. I have been struggling with this.

But today I wrote an article on the best chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe and it ended up being over 1000 words. Woo Hoo.

I'm so excited that I just had to share it with you, my WA family

It was getting so bad, the struggle, that I was considering quitting. But I got over it and boy am I glad. For all you new ones here, DON"T GIVE UP! I have had several encouraging me, a shout out to ParthaP. Thank you. I will eventually get to your ideas and suggestions:)

But this morning I was compelled to write this article. So while writing the article I also baked the cookies. Don't they look good? They taste good that's for sure. I was taking pictures, baking cookies, and writing the article.

It sure has been a busy morning. I finally feel motivated again.

I was not sure I was going to get over my lack of motivation but I did!

(Yes, the picture above is the cookies I baked this morning.)

I need to work on my picture-taking. But it is something I believe will improve with time and practice.

If I can get over my lack of motivation so can you!

I don't write blogs often But I just couldn't contain my excitement.

Thank you for reading

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Yay! Way to go, Tia!!
That feels good, doesn't it!

Remember how you felt when you wrote the article. That will help you through next time.

Although, you might have to bake more cookies...grin.

Hey, the writing baker!!

Who's this ParthaP fella?

Sounds like a lovely chap, but I can't say I'm happy about him using my name!!


Huge congratulations Tai.

As with anything in life, it's all about practice.

It would be the same as me posting an image of MY chocolate chip oatmeal cookies - they wouldn't look anywhere near as good as yours. Plus, there'd probably only be two in the photo because I'd eaten most of the cookie batter before I'd put the cookies in the oven.

But with practice I'd get better, and learn to use more cookie batter so I'd actually have something to put in the oven.

Same goes for you writing your recipe articles.

In 3 months time you'll look back and chuckle to yourself as you're regularly knocking 1,200-1,500 word articles.

In 6 months time you'll wonder what all the fuss is about as you write a 1,500-word aticle and produce a YouTube video, while creating the perfect recipe PIN, all within the space of a few hours.

It's all about practice.

The more we do something, the easier it gets, and the better we become.

But, for now, I'm extremely proud of your achievements.

Go Tai, yaaayy!!

Oh My. I was so excited I put the wrong initial in. So so sorry. I guess I was thinking P for Prince. Haha!
