What to do on days when you don’t feel like writing 

​Whether you’re just starting out or have been writing for a long time, there are always days when you want to do anything but writing. On such days you feel like beating yourself up. Writing productivity is lost and the creative muscles are dulled (at least for that moment). Well, I am an avid fan of staying productive (churn out great pieces) and such days are always nightmares. I feel awful on them.

How to beat the crowd and stand out in any niche

Truth is: every writer wants to stand out their voices heard (at least in their own niche). To attract an audience for art is a common craving amongst wordspinners.

But here’s the thing: there are usually (too) many people clamouring for attention in these niches. This way most of them go unnoticed.
Yes, there are writers never heard of.
And, It’s not that they are not good but they are just down the pecking order.

These Writers continually churn out great pieces but they remain unknown.

I was like that some years ago. I was writing great pieces but like the proverbial stone in sea drop, nobody seemed to read them. I’d write a good story but when I shared it online, I’d hear nothing. Just crickets!
I was left confused and discouraged even to the point where I contemplated quoting.
But then one day I realized that to get heard I must stand out from the crowd of Writers in my niche. I must be different.
Does this sound familiar?

Well, I’ve got news for you – you can stand out too.

First, I want you to know that: Writing, in fact, Art is meant for EXPRESSION not SUPPRESSION. (click to Tweet)

Yes, you write to get read. Writing is incomplete without readership!
How do you get to express when you don’t have a following?
How do you build an audience for your writing?

To do that, you need to:
Be prolific or
Be so good that you can’t be ignored.

This is what the law of Remarkable is all about.


The law says that for a mission-driven project to succeed, it should be “remarkable” in two different ways.

First, it must compel people to remark about it who encounter it to others.

Second, it must be launched in a venue that supports such remarking.


To apply this law to your creative endeavor, art or work, you must:

1. Learn your craft
2. Practice continually
3. Consistently create
4. Evolve with trends
5. Build a wide network

I’d delve into each of these in a subsequent post.

Ending Notes

You can’t stay under the radar, work yourself up by being prolific. This Will enable you get the attention you and your work truly deserve. Be remarkable!

One Big Reason your so many goals never get accomplished 

​It’s commonplace nowadays to hear someone advice another: “set a goal.” or “Make it a target!”

Goal setting is such an integral part of our everyday lives that gives us a focus, a direction or path to thread.

In my bid to keep up growing and developing (being better day by day), I’ve always been among those who are so eager to set goals but haven’t been on the fortunate side of things when it comes to achieving them. 

Everytime I fail to hit a deadline or attain a goal, I keep asking myself -Why is this so? Why can’t I achieve these goals?

I then found out that it wasn’t my goals that were wrong it was my approach to achieving them that was at fault.

Do yourself a favour – Take Action Now

Whenever you take action, you get better off when you had only planned, intended, wished or aspired. The statements below are commonly made by people who have a big wishbone and don’t back it up with a backbone of doing:

‘I wish I were a writer’,

‘I wish I were a dancer’,

‘I wish I had started a blog’,

‘I intend to join a music group’,

‘I am an aspiring businessman’,

Does this  Sound like you? Many people are in the category of good intention makers but bad action takers.

What is your definition of success?

A few weeks ago I was conversing with a friend whom I hadn’t seen for three years.
After the usual, ‘long time no see’ and ‘how have you been?’ salutations,
he asked me a question – ‘What does success mean to you?’ I was silent for a while and he added, ‘What’s your life target?’
I was dumbfounded by the gravity of the question and couldn’t answer. All through my journey back to school I kept pondering on it – what does success mean to me personally?
I didn’t get to the bottom of it until recently. I now understand what my friend was asking me to do.

Rewriting – A needful tool for writers

Last week I was reading a short story online. It was a good story – suspense filled, captivating flow and well described scenes.
But then as I was reading I began to bump into some potholes.
I was irritated and had to stop reading it.
Let me ask you, Have you ever left an article because it was poorly written?
Or better still, Have you ever written a piece only to receive feedback on it saying: “nice concept but please rewrite”?
If you belong to a writing group or work with an Editor, I bet your answer would be yes!
