How To Generate At Least 10 Ideas To Write On Daily Even As A New Writer
Develop a writing system…
One of the reasons many refuse to write is because they fear that they do not have enough ideas and insights to share.
I also used to be like that. I thought I didn’t have enough.
Honestly, it is just your scarcity mindset.
You only need one idea to write one article per day. Right?
What if I told you you could generate ten ideas daily.
Here are four actionable ways you can generate ideas to write on daily:
1. Keep a Story Sheet:
A story sheet can be an excel sheet (I recommend that) or a regular journal, where you store stories daily.
A story in this context is the highlight of your day, every day.
Just one is enough.
Devote five minutes before your bedtime to pick one moment throughout the entire day that stands out and why.
Write out that moment in very few words.
Doing this daily gives you a database of personal experiences to pick from and write.
2. The 2 Years Test:
Write out five topics you have learned about in the past two years and five problems you have been able to solve or overcome in your life over the past two years.
Now write an article targetting people who are currently in the position you were in two years ago, helping them with your story and all you learned in the process.
3. Quotes Filing:
I love this particular one. I have been doing it even before I started writing online.
Every time you read a quote that hits home, don’t just nod. File it.
Have a separate journal for quotes. On days that it seems like you have nothing to write about, browse through your quote journal and stick with the first quote that jumps at you. As you think about it, insights will begin to flow.
4. Read Daily:
Not to waste words on this point. Read every day. Meaningful content. Your reading should be planned, not reactive.
The more you read, the better and more refined your ideas.
If you can develop a writing system around these four habits, you would only have a problem with having too many ideas to write on.
