?Write one article a day,? I've seen it come by often. This practice improves your discipline, which is a success factor in many other areas too.
But there is another article writing rule: Save one Article a day.
May unnecessary to explain, but saving is an economic term and is opposed to consuming. You save for later if you have had enough to consume. This limitation of current consumption is the fundament behind investment; as an investor you need to think about the future and that will be hindered by consuming.
?But I do not consume articles,? True, but you do not save your finished article either. Rather, I think, you will submit it once it is finished.
If you would break with this ritual you will benefit from it in two ways.
First, the quality of your writing will improve. If you write one article today, and you read it again tomorrow before submitting it, you will enhance it, it is like a double check (that is one of the guiding principles offered here at ezines). Unfortunately, this improvement is only visible for yourself...
How will it increase your production? First, in line with what previous mentioned, once you read the draft again, you will notice that the same article will give food (for thought) for another article. But it also releases you from a certain stress. Each day, you will know that you have at least one article finished to submit, and this should be a relief. In order to have this functioning well you should save more than one article.
There is also a side-effect; if you read your article again "the day after" you might not agree with it (anymore). ?Have I written this,? maybe this will ring a bell to you in another context...
Obvious, this rule doesn't work on day one. So before implementing this strategy, you should start saving a first article (or more) after which you will harvest from this strategy the following day and the days after...
