1. Just write.... I think the problem I face when trying to start a blog is that I want to organize it like a book. I want to start with an introduction to my blog. Only I am not sure what direction this blog may take. So I write something then I erase it. I go on writing something else then I erase that. Rule #1 just write! Something, anything, woman write the blog!!!!
2. Be consistent... Writing will become a ritual. It is a moment to yourself and your thoughts each day. Schedule time on your calendar to write. A friend of mine and a fellow blogger, told me she sets aside an hour every morning before her kids wake up so that she can blog. I don't have kids, so I felt lazy in comparison for not even starting!!! But here I am tho!
3. Be Inspired... For me, my environment inspires me. Sometimes I will play a youtube fireplace on my TV, light a candle and make a chai latte. This makes me feel like I am tucked away in a rustic cottage for a writers retreat! Sometimes I pile some blanket and pillows in my SUV with my dog and we head out to a park and voila, another writing retreat! Mostly, I write poetry, not this blog, obviously...lol...But it is the dawn of a new day....so again, I am here writing!
4. Vary your medium... Most of the time I write on a laptop. I have a little touch of OCD when it comes to writing and being able to fix your mistakes instantly on a laptop help me to focus on the writing. But, sometimes I just like to have a notebook and pen my thoughts. Other times, I will record my thoughts, letters or blog entries on the voice memo app of my iPhone.
