Andy Nicolaides Writing for The Dent:

One of the main things keeping me from posting more, I think, is that I have a bad habit of only ever writing a post / article in one sitting. I can’t remember a time I’ve ever just started writing a bit and then come back to add a bit over a few days. The fact I don’t come back to a piece is probably fairly evident in the quality of my posts, unfortunately.

While doing a post from start to finish each time seemed like it would be a better way of getting more posts out, it’s ended up with me just thinking I don’t have enough time to finish anything of substance right now so I don’t even start.

Right now, I should have a handful of draft posts somewhere where I can keep adding points as I go along before compiling them into a final post at some point. Instead I have a bunch of emails sitting in my inbox, with Reminders entries attached to them. The closest I get to drafting things right now is writing some posts in my head while I drift off at night.

I need to stop thinking that I have no spare time to write or podcast, and start making better use of whatever time I do have.


I couldn’t agree more with this. I have found the best way my for me to write consistently is to have a lot of different plates spinning at once for my blog. If I’m not feeling one post, I’ll just move to another for the time being.
