A Daily Process of Writing

Just wrote 1800+ words about The Florida Project–something I had no idea I was going to do an hour ago.

I’m liking this new approach to writing I heard about on Seth Godin’s podcast Akimbo about writer’s block. Science-fiction author Isaac Asimov wrote some 400 novels in his time. His secret? Getting up at 6:30am every morning and writing until 12. No specific project, no deadlines. Just writing.

My experience with his approach this week is positive, resulting in more articles and posts than I have time to edit and publish. Without the pressure of writing to a schedule, I find more words that need scheduling.

Now, if you’ll excuse me.

I have more to write.
