For weeks now I have had a complete block on meaningful content and to a certain extent I still have, so the best thing is to start writing again and hopefully inspiration will come.
Got to empty my head of the rubbish in there, ok its clearing. I want to know where I can go with this. who can talk to to tell my story . I have so many to tell, but how?
Think, what is it I am trying to say, make it simple and clear.
I have to imagine I am in coffee shop with some friends and have to engage with them enough in order to make them be part the story.
I can get animated and emotional when relating the tale and I know it’s interesting when my friends are relating to it with laughter and long periods of concentration.
Having a subject that you are passionate about will relate to your readers through your copy. I am passionate about coaching whether its Social Media or Photography.
I spent five years teaching and coaching English in Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. I have so many stories to tell, one day I will put to paper. Many people suggested I write a book, so maybe I will. I made so many Vietnamese friends through coaching and we still stay in touch and part of me still belongs there. The point is to tell your story and relate it to your copy and your readers will follow your journey.
This is going better than I thought! I am beginning to get unblocked. Hope this is making sense. Just putting my immediate thoughts down and not getting stressed about form is helping.
I think the lesson I have learnt is to listen to what people want and provide them with informative useful copy which is engaging and entertaining through my personal experiences.
Nothing is perfect, but the aim is to connect and ask questions to engage. Who is your Target audience, You will know when they start to engage with you. Very exciting!
Having jumped in and drafted this blog I feel I am unblocked and by committing my thoughts to this page I feel liberated.
