Sounds Obvious — So Why Do I Forget?
It’s a simple thought.
When you’re feeling like your writing has no life, put yourself into it. It’s your story, and that’s the tale I want to hear.
If you write about a business book that you just read, put yourself into it. What was it like for you to read it? Did you remember something you used to know? Did it get you inspired to try a new approach? Were you bored? Did it get you jazzed?
If you write about a blog that you’ve discovered, tell me how you reacted to it. What was the one thing that you found compelling? What surprised you? What was your response to the folks in the comment box?
From the time that we started talking, we’ve been telling each other stories. If I hear what you heard inside a story, I might want to give something a try. I might not. Either way I’ll keep reading what you wrote to see what your reaction was.
I can find information in lots of places.
But I can only find your story, if you tell me. That’s powerful.
Put yourself into it. You are the human interest in everything you write.
