My writer’s block experiment

“If you have momentum and consistency first, then true craftsmanship and timeless can come from a result of it.”-Ayodeji Awosika

When I decided to publish once a week, it was an experiment to try and help me deal with writer’s block.

  • I kind of know what I want to say, but the words aren’t coming out
  • I feel like I’m repeating myself from past works

Reading and writing, two sides of the same coin

“Reading is breathing in, writing is breathing out.” — Pam Allyn

Very early on into my experiment, I found that I’d run out of things to write about unless I spent a significant amount of time reading.

One of the things that you learn with the consistency approach is that you need to keep moving, no matter the case.
