4. Focus yourself. If you need internet for research, thatís fine. Just restrict yourself to research at hand. I canít tell you how often I found myself, two hours later, surfing some unrelated sites and being no closer to my goal. Itís easy to get side-tracked so watch yourself.
5. LIMIT yourself. Provided you can stay focused on task at hand, you should limit yourself to a certain amount of time. You donít want to burn yourself out and end up hating task. Get youself a clock or watch and choose a comfortable time limit. I usually give myself thirty minutes at a time. It may not seem like a lot of time, but remember Ė if you focus on task at hand, you will accomplish a lot.
6. Organize your research. You will no doubt find so much information on your subject. Set yourself up with a file or notebook that is only for your article information. I canít tell you HOW you should set this up because I donít know you. But if you want to read an outstanding book on creating ezines then you should check out ďToo Busy To Create A Profitable EzineĒ by Ann Rusnak. Itís one of best books Iíve read. http://www.getresultsquicker.com/services.htm
7. Write often. Practice makes (almost) perfect. It truly DOES get easier more you do it. Donít get discouraged. If your first article isnít all that good, write another one. Then another.
There are so many ďtipsĒ and ďsuggestionsĒ we could go through. We could be here for hours Ė but there are already so many good books on this subject. The bottom line is that you need to make that commitment to yourself if you want to write successfully, whether itís for your own ezine or to submit to article databases.
Writing, for most people, requires a little patience. Go easy on yourself. Keep trying. As I am just starting to learn Ė easier it gets, more rewarding it gets. And it gets more enjoyable. And as I am also learning, I am starting to get a bigger flow of traffic.
After all is said and done, isnít that overall goal?
