I go through phases where I forget how to write. I sit down at night and I think “what the hell am I going to write about today?”
When this happens, I always remind myself of a few basic hacks I’ve learned about writing. They are …
Write to one person - When I write my daily blog, I am quite literally writing to my son. I pretend I am writing him a letter and that I want him to know what I’m thinking.
Write a daily reflection - This writing serves a purpose. This is a way for me to decompress. Hopefully, by sharing my experience with you, I am able to help you which in turn helps me.
It doesn’t have to be that complicated. I like to make everything more complicated and more stressful than it needs to be.
I’m simply reflecting on my day and writing a note to my boy.
