Have you ever stayed one, two, three days without writing? How easy was it writing one thousand words having not written any story for the past three?

It’s really hard. The friction that comes with it can drastically reduce the quality of your work and how many words you could roll out. You might have experienced this at some points as a creative writer. That’s one reason writers should write and publish an article every day even when the work isn’t fancy.

Creative work is a product of partnership with the creative genius. Creativity is, therefore, a love affair between you and your creative genius. Do you get it?

The proof of harmony of your bound with the creative genius is effortless ease in producing creative works:

  • ease in making a story from an inspiration;
  • ease composing a song from an experience;
  • ease in turning an idea into a profitable business…

You just have a certain ease that not everyone has with the craft and so you roll out pieces as though effortless.

Actually, it’s a partnership with the creative genius that cuts the strings of resistance experienced by a lot of other persons. You will agree that you have siblings or friends who can’t make an article from…. Continue reading
