Do You Write Consistently? Or Do You Need A Bit Of Help?


We all like to think that we’re good at writing. I know I do! But sometimes, it feels as if I don’t have the motivation to write, when I know I have something that needs to be said.

I’m oftentimes exhausted from working my 9-5 rat race career by the time I get home, so I don’t always have the energy I need to function properly. I try to post every few days, but I feel a lack of motivation to do what needs to be done. I know at this point whether or not I should even begin a post or postpone it until later.

Then again, it seems that, once in a while, I’ll have the motivation to keep going once I’ve started. At these times, I”ll be able to keep going for a good twenty minutes, by which point I’ve been able to pound some good, solid six hundred word posts with much gusto, and without even so much as a hiccup in keeping my train of thought. (I know twenty minutes doesn’t seem like a lot, but if you think a blog post has to be really long, think again. Some of the most powerful blog posts in the world get straight to the point in a measly 250-500 words, and this is where you can concentrate on multiple blog posts per day if you’re highly proficient.)

The part that takes the longest is the proofreading afterwards for content flow and spelling, and once in a while I’ll post something, only to later read it and discover a few errors. That has nothing to do with motivation as it were– that I’ve typed out my article is typically enough for me to move on with my day.

So, here are a few tips that I would recommend to someone who might be having a hard time maintaining consistency, or just content creation in general.

Write In The Morning

I find it much easier to type anything and everything out in the mornings, because I’ve been able to rest my mind for a few hours. If I’ve awoken from a particularly refreshing sleep, then I tend to write with great strength, speed, and accuracy. On those days when I haven’t slept well, I’ll just end up reading. If you have poor sleep, there’s a good chance you’ll wind up not having the energy to put your thoughts to paper properly.

My creativity takes a serious hit after a rough night’s sleep, and no amount of caffeine will save me from the soon-to-follow rampant destruction my keyboard tricks me into writing.

If you decide to incorporate a morning routine before starting, then have at it. Nothing beats a sense of routine to ensure you get the best out of your writing. Meditation, yoga, or a short exercise routine are all excellent for promoting mental clarity and blood flow.

Carve Out At Least Fifteen Minutes To Write Down Ideas

Fifteen minutes is almost all you’ll need to get ideas for a quick blog post or journal entry. If you break any project down to sections, you will be able to create main points, content flow, and above all, you can get your main point driven home without fluff or filler words. Being verbose is for lawyers, anyways.

If You Already Have Plenty Of Hand-Written Journals, Convert Them

Background, Blank, Book, Bindings

I think this is one of the best content sources ever. If you feel as if you’re lacking creativity, but you still have the urge to write, then perhaps it might be suitable to source content from some of your personal journals. I know at least some of you have some journals stacked up in your closet from high school– dig into them! look around for some interesting entries, and convert those into digital format! Journals from your past might contain some memory-jogging material, which you can then use to explain certain stories.

Read Beforehand In Your Niche

This goes particularly for people whose specialty involves writing about what really matters to them, or for those who are excellent in a particular niche or area of interest. It always helps to have that little boost of motivation from the masters in your arena in such a way which allows you to create your own twist to your material. As an example, I did some reading into this book to allow me some motivation to write about writing.  By the way, reading primarily in your niche almost guarantees you’ll have valuable perspective and fresh ideas for your own content.

As it turns out, being an authority for a niche means you’ll be a source of information– people everywhere are hungry for information. If you’ve been involved in your niche for a while, your chances of success are a bit higher than the person who’s simply trying to find his or her niche from the get-go. If you’re anything like me, you’re in the latter of the two groups.

If you found any of this information relevant or helpful, I would appreciate some feedback!

One more thing about writing: If you’re really wanting to write it’s going to take exactly one thing– you must actually write. I had it told to me this way once, and it’s been a really good little motto: “You don’t look at someone’s artist portfolio and wish you could draw. If you truly wished you could draw, you would already have started a long time ago. Never wish; always do.” –Anonymous, unless someone has the source of this non-verbatim quote.

My Personal Passive Income Stream Idea(s) for 2018?

I have been watching lecture after lecture, video after video, and reading blog post after blog post of some of the best passive income streams. I have learned a great deal of information from each of these methods. I’m keenly interested in making money online and I’m in a mindset right now to put out as much helpful information and energy I can to help others watch or learn my journey from my personal rags to riches (no, I’m not entirely homeless, but I’ll be damned if I keep having to struggle every month). I’ve almost made it a personal goal to improve my financial situation, since I’m going to be the determinant for my future anyways– I cannot keep relying on others’ help for this.

I ran across many hundreds of tidbits of information ranging from investing, real estate, drop shipping, driving people around, harnessing your knowledge to help others in your field, and perhaps more than I can mention at this moment. The latter idea (harnessing my knowledge) is perhaps the greatest service I can offer to everyone. Not only will it let me feel better about having been useful to more than just my locality, but as I’m already deemed an expert in this field, I felt that maybe the little golden nugget that helped me was this video right here. Ms. Perkins mentions about three in this video that I know beyond all shadow of doubt that I can perform with ease, and it could be almost exceedingly profitable for me, since it has been my top strength for decades now. In no particular order, these three clicked for me:


As someone who has gone to school for greater than half of his life, in a setting not suited for people like myself [read: standardized education], I’ve come to realize that it was never about myself having had a problem– it was always the means by which information was delivered by the instructors (to memorize and quote upon a test, almost like a legalized form of plagiarism). It was never the instructors’ fault, though I blamed them and hated having to speak to them about why I couldn’t understand how this, that or the other. It dawned on me recently that I am going to have to put forth my own energy to teach people in a field that appears to be in decline since the advent of text messaging– English and writing. Not once before my 30s did this occur to me. I was always interested in the feeling of excellence in my writing and expressing it to others just for the sake of having them read my content, but it never occurred to me to help anyone out. Given platforms like Fiverr and Udemy, however, I’m currently in the process of developing my skills, improving my own knowledge, and reach a global audience where it counts to actually utilize my skills to assist those who are studying English, whose first language might not have been English. This is where the internet will come in handy.

I’m not a certified educator, but I know well enough how to research using verified and trusted sources for information (the dictionary and thesaurus, and some of my English textbooks that I never threw away). Using these tools, I’ll be generating a decent Udemy course and helping people edit books on Fiverr (as well as write blog posts and guides, as I have been already) . But it’s going to take some effort on my part, because my speaking skills for video presentation are crap.


This one is right up my alley. You know how people are considered grammar Nazis? It turns out that their keen recognition of grammatical errors isn’t just out of the desire to sound like a b-hole on purpose– we just point out flaws in writing that would make communication far easier for the rest of native English speakers and readers. It turns out that this skill is useful in not only providing assistance to those whose writing skills might not be the pinnacle of their skill set, but also to those who wish to become writers, and have a great message to give to their readers– but they don’t have the time they need or the energy necessary to perform self-editing and corrections for their works.

Enter people like myself. This is a very skilled arena on Fiverr, and I’m waiting until I can take a week-long vacation to focus strictly on doing exactly this, because that would mean a significant amount of my skills could be focused just in that aspect. There are more people writing books than ever before in history, and there aren’t really enough people editing books to keep up with that demand. Here I was, on Facebook, pointing out errors for free, when my knowledge of writing could have been much more helpful to a wider audience who actually appreciates that kind of behavior because they had something to tell the world about their experiences, their fan fiction, or their otherwise deeply-rooted past and how they reflect on it now. These are things I’d never once become aware of before, and it’s all dawning on me in record pace. My mind is now full of ideas that I can’t keep up with, and all my energy is almost wasted on working full-time for someone else. I’m not even that good at my job.


This doesn’t have anything to do with law, rights, or anything of that nature. I’m not blandly verbose enough to care about being a law student (thank you, George Carlin). Instead, what this entails is capturing the attention for those people who do shop for things on a regular basis online, who are looking to obtain some means by which to save money, or almost blatantly stated, advertisements. I’m not really huge on clicking advertising links, but I understand the amount of my own attention they’ve garnered over the years (I looked at ClickBank). I’ve paid a bit more attention to these than I realized; perhaps not enough to write splash pages, landing pages, or sales funnels– but certainly enough to have some attention-grabbing text that will astound anyone scrolling through Facebook or Twitter or any of the other social media platforms currently available. Facebook ad managers are willing to pay people to create content along these lines, and I’m thinking that it might be more than lucrative, in my experience.

Between the three of these, I think I can make or earn enough to replace my day job. In between working for these, in fact, I could be writing my own series of e-books that will supply a passive income stream. I know it sounds like a lot of work, and perhaps it is– but passive income takes a lot of work up front. If I could create this lengthy blog post in a matter of 40 minutes before work, then don’t you think maybe I might have a chance to go about seeking alternative sources of income that don’t guarantee the shortening of my life and deterioration of my health over the long run– for a partly retirement? I’ve rarely taken major chances, and I don’t gamble, but this is one thing I have great confidence in.

One thousand, two hundred thirty words. Forty minutes. That’s the ticket right there, everyone.

It is morning time!

You know what that means, right? No? Well, I’ll tell you! I get to go to work! Not everyone gets to say they have a secure 9-5, and those of us who do have this option typically feel better off than the next person because their fast food job never treated them with retirement benefits, health benefits, vision care, and hourly wages of that type of magnitude! I mean, who doesn’t want to make more than $10 an hour? That extra bit of money in your hand by the next paycheck is always welcomed!

But, as you grow older, you begin to realize that things change. Your perspective begins to focus its shift away from buying extravagant items, such as an expensive pair of shoes to match your fashionable jeans which were made to look used, or another CD to add to your growing collection.. You begin instead to look forward to putting some away, what little is left after your child support is removed every paycheck. You put some here for retirement, some here for gas and electric bills, some here for diapers, most here for car payment, insurance, food, replacement socks and t-shirts, internet, phones. And then, you have to prepare for dinners, your personal breakfast foods (I like eggs, but once in a while it’s nice to just eat a bowl of oatmeal in the morning).

How is there ever enough time to enjoy life with all these requirements? Well, I’ve been thinking about this for a while. I know there is no way that my life is intended to work for someone else while begging for a higher wage. At the same time, I’m glad I’m not working in fast food or part time anymore because those types of jobs were not exactly within the realm of “desirable” when it came to what began to matter most in my household. I needed something bigger for myself, and for my fiancee and her daughter. (And my dog. He’s a family member too, even if he does poo indoors BAD DOG!)

I’ve been searching for solutions to my particular set of financial problems and this blog is helping just a little bit. It gets my mind off of life for the little bit of time I’m able to come to write or make updates. At this time, I must begin to prepare for work, but if anything changes for financial betterment, then I should let you know here. I know I need to start a website, but that’s a first-of-the-month thing (which approaches rapidly).

If you have something you would like to suggest, I’m an open book! Speaking of which, please check out my book here.

If you just want to say you enjoyed it, that’s cool too. I like feedback, and critique. See you all later!

Do You Like Money? Me Too!

You know, being a coin collector is one thing. Hoarding nickels and pre-1982 Lincoln cents is basically the kind of coin collector I am. And by “hoarding,” I mean, I live paycheck to paycheck, and storing nickels for future use is my version of an emergency fund. Being that I am new to the “making money online through affiliate marketing” area of the internet, this seems to be coming off as a slow start. And you must know that I’m REALLY trying to make money online to the best of my ability through Twitter and linking here.

But, there are some success stories out there regarding an extravagant network of new marketers working part time for a relatively short period of time generating enough money, working simply part time, to quit their full-time day jobs. I would like to eventually reach that point.

Some of these programs require an up-front purchase of the entire program, and their promises to earn you several hundred dollars sound SO CONVINCING, but because $30 or $40 is actually a cut out of our budget, that seems like a large expense to me. We could use that for food, and whatnot.

Besides, how nice would that actually be? They give you the entire training program, plus a team of helpers who are skilled enough in this marketing to help you reach a point where you begin to fly on your own wings until you’ve made a full contribution towards sustaining your financial freedom and become that success story. That sounds FREAKING AWESOME.

And the other thing is, I’m a little bit insecure in making such a leap, but I’m toward a point now where I’m nearly too broke to live now (tax people say I owe some $1,200 from last year. What?!).

You know that times are bad in today’s world when someone who works as a lower-level employee in their local government is still struggling to get by. So I’m either working too hard and sacrificing my health for too little pay by working for someone else, or I’m too lazy and tired after working an eight-hour manual labor day to keep lifting a finger to do more for myself. I have noticed that I have some energy on the weekends, during which I take care of some household chores. If I had a few tools I could use, and a budget-friendly means of starting up a more realistic side income, and learned how to generate online sales and other affiliate-related things, I would be more on top of the world than I already am.

But then again, there’s a phrase or two that goes towards people like myself: “Easy come, easy go,” and, “A fool and his money are soon parted.” I wonder if those quotes have withstood the test of time for a reason, heh.

Well, I do have to go because the background noise in my apartment has quadrupled and I can no longer concentrate on writing at this moment.
