The drafts section on WordPress is something I love. It’s like a pile of useful drawers! I open them from time to time – and randomly – to :
- Check what it is about (written a long time ago : I forgot)
- Read over
- Throw a few new seeds into it
- Spill one or two sentences at the beginning, in it, or at the end
- Begin a new part/paragraph
- Pick up an extension, a branch : another article, therefore another draft, haha
Sometimes I forgot so much what it was about that I “reckon without” (dang : how to use this “reckon” verb?), and I trash the draft. Because a draft can be a title only, right?
In all “Advices for bloggers”, there’s this : << Write, write, and write >>. My advice here is : Draft, draft and draft again. I have more than 150.
Never be afraid to stupid-draft. Seeds are good, even if they growbecome into quirkytrees…
I do think that those who write (a blog or a book) have to exercise daily. So this is what I do : my bed is surrounded with books and magazines (and papered letters, these days). Every morning, before, while and after I coffee, I grab anything (made of paper) around, I gather two or three seeds until I can’t wait to sit in front of my computer.
If there’s nothing found, grab else, or go outside to breathe some air. Maybe it’ll come (and you could see the moon or hear the bird).
Oftentimes (oohhh that’s a word?), I create two or three new drafts. A title is enough sometimes (today : “Golem”). I likely spill one or two phrases into them. Then I let the windows opened : they are like little flowerpots.
Later when I kitchen or bathroom, I get sparkles and garlands which complete my pots. It’s likely that they become a couple of published articles during the day. Swell!
OK, I don’t know how to use the words likely, and reckon (without sounding Texan). And I use to spill too much. Sorry.
