Ever since I resumed blogging this year, I have been quite disciplined in writing. Each article takes about 1 to 2 hrs time to write, edit and essentially just be ready for publishing. This doesn’t include time to brainstorm for articles. Hence, you can see it requires a certain discipline to churn out consistently. I’m trying to hit about 2 articles per week, usually published on a Monday and a Thursday to spread them out.

The writing and editing is the easy part of the job. What’s the hardest part? It’s to come up with ideas to write on. And for this kind of creative process, you can’t just set a goal and say I want to come up with 10 great ideas by this week. It just won’t happen this way. It can’t be forced like that. Some days you are wet with ideas, and some days you are just dry as a bone.
