I woke up today and the first thing I did was switch on the computer and write an article. I didn’t log onto the internet, didn’t make myself a coffee, I just switched on, sat down and wrote. Within an hour, I’d finished it and sent it to the client just after midday. Quickest $50 I’ve ever made.
I felt my forehead just to make sure I wasn’t running a temperature as this is soooo, soooo, soooo unlike me. I tend not to look forward to writing a piece no matter how painless the actual writing is. I’m an expert at building up the dread in my head until it reaches beautifully epic proportions. It’s just what I do. If I’m writing for myself, I’m fine, but the minute someone pays me to write, I get all stressed out about it. The fear is unfounded – I can’t really put it down to experience – the only nightmare piece I’ve written in a long time has been a press release – I wrestled with it for 2 weeks, but I got through it and the client seemed to love it.
So, yeah, today’s started off really good. Thank you, me!
I can’t say that tomorrow will be a repeat performance, but I’m holding onto this morning for what it is.
Hope y’all have a mangoful day.
