So, you think you have great content but when you read it back it doesn’t read that well, or worse, you’ve already published the piece and the condemning feedback you received is not what you expected. So you correct what mistakes came from the comments, read it back and it still does not make sense, what do you do? Well what you can do is put that piece to one side and start over again or you can press the delete button, change the subject, change the style, change the look and feel or take time out and wait for inspiration to come to you.
There is nothing wrong with taking time out and waiting for inspiration to arrive once again. Pressing the delete button can help with many issues, and can actually force you to think in another direction. It can allow you time to go and do something else other than pour out more poor work and it does give you time to research another topic, or visit a place that brings inspiration to you.
Have you ever taken the time to read a dictionary? I used to take a page and read through it, which can fill your mind with alternative words. It sounds quite normal but finding new words can be inspirational. Some words that you have never even heard of can give you cause to create a whole new document, blog or post. New words bring you a different level of understanding or conversation. They stimulate the mind and bring you a sense of wonder.
Don’t be afraid to rip up or tear down a piece of work that you thought was good. All that you thought of is still there, but it may just need looking at from a different point of view. There are many ways of getting your points across and inspiration can come from variety of opportunities.
Reading how others put their point across can bring you joy and delight, and harnessing the power of words can lead to you finding new ways of stimulating the reader. The thing that you don’t want to do is leave the reader with a sense of gloom and doom. Instead you need the reader to want more and inspire them to seek further knowledge or take up an idea and run with it. Great content will be greeted with an immense satisfaction by both reader and author. You know when you have read a really good book as it gives you a lift and you go on to seek more of that feeling. You too can create great pieces of work that others will appreciate, recommend and pass onto others.
Pressing the delete button can give you time to produce better work than you have ever produced and it doesn’t mean that you have lost your way. It can actually make you go in a completely different direction, open different thought processes and allow you to flourish and inspire others.
