Why daily letters?
The big thing people are amazed about is that I write stuff daily.
You know what? It’s easy.
I used to write a technical blog post every week.
I used to do a fortnightly podcast about football.
I used to write a monthly update about football.
Daily is actually easier. In fact, of these, I would say the monthly one is hardest.
The reason is because they’re almost throw-away. If I screw one up, it doesn’t matter. Another will be along tomorrow.
If I write weekly or monthly, it has to be something worth reading. You’ve been waiting for days, for weeks, for these pearls of wisdom. How can I make it worth your while?
If I write daily, I only need to write two or three paragraphs. If I run out of ideas, I can just stop. And if I have lots to say, I can spread it out over several days.
Take action: What’s your writing schedule? Is it working for you? If not, why not change it.
