Derek Sivers's Writing Process

Submitted by JRameau on Tue, 03/06/2018 - 20:51
  1. Write all of my thoughts on a subject.
  2. Argue against those ideas.
  3. Explore different angles until I’m sick of it.
  4. Leave it for a few days or years, then repeat those steps.
  5. Hate the messy pile of thoughts.
  6. Write a tiny outline of the key points.
  7. Post the outline. Trash the rest.
