Listen, writing content isn't easy. We know that. But there are absolutely tricks you can use to help you create more authentic content that people will actually want to read.
Keep reading to find the best tips we think you should use the next time you sit down to write content for you business!
1. Set yourself up for success.
If you know us, then you know we love to talk about feminine energy (thanks Mom/Coach). So I'm not going to tell you that having a clean office space or making sure you have water and snack is the most important thing here.
You already know that. But next time you sit down to write, I want you to look around your office or writing space, and really analyze what you need to feel in flow.
Do you like certain scents? Light a candle or spray some room spray around your space. Maybe putting your crystals in front of you while you write will help, or some light instrumental background music. Dim the lights a little or make sure you set time aside to write in the morning sun.
Whatever it is, it goes deeper than having a glass of water and sharpened pencils.
You need to know what your soul needs to flow freely in a creative headspace.
Which brings us to our next point...
2. Get into flow.
This is different than setting up your space, because if you can't get into flow, then it doesn't matter what the space around you is like.
While creating a calm environment in your office is helpful for getting into a flow state, it's not going to help if you go into that area feeling clogged up and stuck.
Instead, I suggest putting aside 30 minutes before you sit down to write to really get into a good mindset.
This is when I listen to happier music that I can sing or dance to. Or if I'm feeling wired, this is a good time for a bubble bath. It's important that you are in this state of mind before you get into work mode, because even with a zen office, the moment you step into that room, your brain knows it's time to work.
So ensuring you are already in a state that will allow your creativity to flow is super important for creating boss content.
Other ideas for getting into flow state before you start writing:
Cook a healthy meal
Go for a walk with the dog
Some 'you' time ;)
Paint a photo or draw a sketch
3. Know what you're going to talk about!
This is the last point we are going to share, but this one is extremely important! This is where we can use our masculine energy to really help us out when we are in our feminine.
I like to plan out my content (this is something we do for our clients, too) a few months in advance. And this is as simple as writing out 1 topic per week for the next 3 months. This allows us to set up our quarter in the masculine mode, so that when we finally sit down to write our content, we can be fully in our feminine and not have to worry about the logistics.
Sometimes we think that if we just sit down and let our fingers write, then we will get into flow state right away, but when we are worrying about what we should talk about, if it flows with the last topic, if it you have enough to say about it, then we are falling right back into being rigid and just end up right back where we started. With a blank screen or piece of paper.
So take these tips and apply them next time you have a lot to write, and see how you feel in comparison to just sitting down and telling yourself, "Ok! It's time to write! THINK!!!!!"
I promise you'll feel a hell of a lot better.
