The more you enjoy your writing, the more other people enjoy reading it.
Writing should be a pleasurable activity, even when you need to make money from it. The more enjoyable you find the activity, the easier it becomes and the more fluently your writing flows. Your pleasure shines through your words and others enjoy reading what you write.
Just imagine waking up each morning thinking you have to get a piece of writing done today. Many people write because they have to. They have to feed their family, or any other of a number of reasons. But they are still able to enjoy writing and feel thankful they have the opportunity and skills to write.
Some online content writers lately have been allowing resentment to interfere with the quality of their writing. They don’t believe they are being paid what they deserve. They don’t think readers appreciate their work enough. These writers are turning writing into a chore for themselves and it shows in their work. Readers can sense when writing becomes a chore for you.
Now imagine waking up in a positive frame of mind. It is a new day and all sorts of wonderful things are happening around you. You mentally decide when you can make time to write and trust that by then you’ll have something to write about. During the day your mind acts like a writer looking forward to the task ahead. By the time your allocated writing time arrives you can’t wait to get started. Your pleasure in writing takes control.
Once you allow yourself to think in a negative way about your writing, ungrateful readers and publishers, unfair writing sites or even the whole writing world in general, you attract more of those negative thoughts and experiences.
Change that around and think about how your writing is improving with everything you write. Imagine you are attracting more readers and your earnings are slowly increasing. Feel happy about the work you’re producing. Feel grateful for the feedback you’re receiving. Soon you’ll start noticing improved statistics in both the number of views and your earnings.
If you’re not currently receiving pleasure from your writing, maybe it is time to take a break. Surround yourself with activities you enjoy more. Someone told me once, when I was moaning about something, nobody owes you anything Val. It’s all up to you.
So fellow writers, it is up to you. Be thankful for your writing skills and the opportunities online sites give us all to improve. Be thankful that you have a place to experiment with the thing you love doing most, writing. Enjoy writing about things that bring you pleasure. Show us all your pleasure in your writing.
