A Challenge To Unlock The Secret Sauce to Writing Great Content
I took a personal challenge to train myself to write every day and realized something unique about it.
Most of the people who write follow their gut feeling, the intuition for the first draft. Which is also good, but generating content on a regular basis needs a process and Practice.
In beginning, the challenge requires a bit of discipline and a need to tackle the initial frustration when you feel the creativity block.
Why I write, because creating something that didn’t exist before is as close as magic as I’ll ever get.
After 30 days into the challenge, You’ll —
- Unlock your own secret sauce for generating content.
- Develop a natural way to research content before writing.
- Discover the value of Editing, Editing, and Editing.

Here is A little Motivation
Here is a brief commentary and an interesting thought on ‘How Writing is Central?’ to all the happenings around the world.
If there is any skill that could be labeled as the most important in all the senses? It’s ‘Writing’.
“If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second-best favor you can do them is to present them with copies of The Elements of Style. The first greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they are happy” — Dorothy Parker
Writing has become a nondetachable part of our lives. We write text messages, social media posts, emails, and work-related documents almost every day. We concede that writing drives a major chunk of our routine.
The bigger picture —
It is far more interesting if we look at it this way:
- According to Google, 500 Million books are published in the world.
- The total number of movies in the world is approximately 500 Thousand.
- The number of companies listed on the stock exchanges around the world is about 45 thousand, excluding the small businesses.
Every business plan, movie, song, and of course book requires writing, to begin with.
The power of writing changed the course of the humanity. A good email, social media post, or the bio on your profile, can change a lot for you. This is a skill worth practicing.
The hardest part about writing is to sit and start the process. Here is what Ernest Hemingway said about it —
“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
Well, that’s too vintage for an advice. But the crux always remained the same, ‘Learn and practice’.
This is enough motivation to acknowledge the importance of the skill.
Coming Back to The Challenge—
I call it ‘100 Words a Day’. This is a fascinating challenge to take.
The task is to experiment with thoughts, ideas, intuitions, and momentary feelings. And write them down in a diary or a text document.
Here it goes; Write a 100-word long paragraph every day without fail for the next 30 days, or continue the challenge if you like it. Don’t prepare for the topic or the content, let it flow.
Embrace every piece of content and good luck with the challenge :)
