Write your rear end off.
Write some more.
Then, write again.
I wrote millions upon millions of words over the years. Heck; over a decade. I wrote, wrote some more and continued to write through thick, thin and all in between. Writing when my eyes glazed over in boredom? Done that.
Writing as intense neck stiffness set in? Done that, too. Never get it twisted. I do not make writing torture. But sometimes I keep writing through uncomfortable emotions. That’s the ultimate writing tip. Write! Keep writing.
Write to practice. Write for the public. Write for publishing. Write for self-publishing. Keep writing. I promise guys; writing gets easier and easier if you nudge deeper into writing practice.
Plus, writing on a public stage gives you dominion over your niche. Bloggers usually have exposure problems. Nobody knows ’em. But writing like the dickens on your blog and through guest posting gives you massive exposure and accelerates your online success.
Expect a nice surge in confidence too. Skills increase, to boot. No downsides exist to practicing your writing like a machine. But plenty of problems arise by not writing your butt off because your skills ain’t paying bills, if not polished through diligent writing practice.
Write 500 Words Daily
Or, write 1000 words daily. Open a Word document. Write. Simple practice. But oh so powerful. Do you want to genuinely take things up 10 notches? Write in public to get practice and exposure. Write on your blog. Publish. Gain greater exposure. Polish skills and be seen in more spots.
Take things up a few more notches. Guest post. I seized this opportunity Prince graciously offered me. He allows me to guest post.
So I guest post. 600-700 words later, I have writing practice under my belt, greater exposure, eBook promotion and more confidence in my writing voice. Toss in a fair dose of clarity, too. No downsides here. Take this tip. To the bank. Literally.
Wade through Mental Blocks
Serious mental blocks masked as fears arise while pressing forward with writing practice. My right hand hurts a little bit. That’s my body. My mind tells me to stop writing based on the physical sensation. But no genuine pain cripples me. I keep writing.
Chalk it up to another example of your mind playing tricks on you, lobbing out obstacles in front of your eyes. Wade through mental blocks. Knife through fears.
Guaranteed, writing daily for 500-1000 words tests your resolve, unearthing blocks to writing diligently. You fear running out of ideas, or fear wasting time, or fear nobody reads your practice words, so why bother? Or you fear criticism by posting to your blog.
Why mess with critics? Not writing to hide in the cyber shadows feels much easier.

Expect eye-popping results over the long haul because writing improves your writing unlike any other practice. Requires little too. Fire up your laptop. Write. This is it. Nothing more. But keep writing when you feel scared, tired or uncomfortable, because talents arise during these particularly trying times.
Turn off the TV. Go offline if you need to do so. Write. Shut off your phone. Find a quiet spot. Write. Put in the work and time. Gain confidence, clarity, and exposure, the more you write on a public stage.
