Have you ever…
Put “write about page” at the top of your to-do list for the day, then busied yourself with literally every other thing possible (doing laundry, washing dishes, organizing your already clean bathroom drawers for the 10th time) only to leave the about page blank by end of day?
Found yourself whittling away time on Facebook or social media because looking at your blank Google doc that was supposed to be your newsletter for the week got old?
Told yourself that a marathon of GIRLBOSS on Netflix would provide you with some inspo to write your next newsletter?
Well, I’m not going to talk about my normal writer’s block tips today (like recording yourself speaking what you want to say, even though that does work). Instead I’m taking the tough love approach…
If you’re feeling writer’s block, it’s time to get over yourself.
Yep, I said it. If you’ve got a bad case of writer’s block, it’s NOT because you have nothing to say. I repeat: it’s NOT because you have nothing to say.
If you have writer’s block, it’s because you’re making your writing all about you.
All about you in the sense that you’re worried about how you look, or how it sounds. Worried about if you might offend someone or be misunderstood. Worried if no one will like or comment on it. All those kind of crappy 💩 thoughts that don’t serve you one bit.
In actuality, your writing has nothing to do with you and has everything to do with serving your audience by spreading your message.
YOUR MESSAGE is that thing you believe about the world that you KNOW will change the lives of your audience if they live it too.
YOUR CONTENT (website, emails, social media posts, etc) is the tool you use to communicate that message consistently over time.
THIS CONSISTENCY allows your audience to TRUST you. It positions you as an expert. It makes your audience feel safe to INVEST in your products/services.
Can you see a pattern?
It all starts with knowing your message.
Lucky 🍀 for you, that’s something I can totally support you with! Let’s hop on the phone for a free Unicorn Discovery Call and layout your custom plan to getting clear on your message and spreading it like wildfire 🔥 with your content.
