Are you are writer and have trouble thinking about what to write about and when you finally come up with a great idea you find you do not have so much time to write it all down? Do you find yourself sometimes not finishing your work and rather end up finishing it all later on? Do you wish you could sit down and pound out 4-6 articles in one sitting rather than barely completing one?
Well perhaps you can and perhaps you need to get out of the box for a second and consider an analogy of pacing your writing and setting an article cadence? Recently, this was brought to my attention by a gentleman who has taken up triathlons and bike racing and getting pretty serious about it too.
He had likened article-writing cadence to the bike peddling cadence and well, setting the pace. In discussing this I had considered my bike touring days and many 10K and marathon footraces.
You know I was able to use exactly the principles he discussed to ride my bicycle from OR to Mexico to raise money for a local charity. The ride was to take 10-days, but instead I set a faster pace and concentrated on cadence and rode ahead and completed it 3.5 days early and crossed into TJ, Mexico in 6.5 days.
You have to commit to a pace and ride it out, concentrate too it is amazing what you can do and how long you can do it; when you are in the zone. So with regards to article writing you need to pace yourself and allow your creative juices to flow and concentrate on article writing cadence. How do I know this will work?
Well this is article number 7150 and I am on cadence and pace to write 1000 articles this month. Call me the accidental article amateur author if you want, but this method works for me and it can work for you too and beside I am only the underdog amateur, think what you can do with real writing talent? Consider all this in 2006.
