WordPress hosted an online course titled Writing 101: Building a Blogging Habit. This post was written a few days ago and is now being posted as a response to the day one challenge: Unlock the Mind.
I’m going to write for twenty minutes and I am going to stop. WordPress told me that I need to publish this mess after I write it and, instantly, I am petrified. I do not write a blog post in a few minutes or a few hours. The process of writing goes on for days or even months for me. I have “draft” blog posts in my queue from years ago. I could go back and work on them if I am so inspired. So I am asked to unlock the mind and just write.
