If you’re one of those who think content creation is a big deal, perish the thought because it’s not. It’s a skill you can learn and master, just like I do on a daily basis.
Everyday, I improve as a writer and I honestly think you can, even if you have an accounting background! I said this because I meet people who tell me they can’t write well because their jobs involve more of calculating than writing but I honestly disagree. There is nothing you cannot do if you commit yourself to it. Every skill is learnable. In fact, it’s advisable to learn a new skill every year and a writing skill is a good one to have. It promotes and liberates you. This is because you have a way of communicating your ideas, deep thoughts and future plans with people. Well, I’ve found writing liberating and I believe it can be the same for you. But, the big question is: are you committed to learning this skill? If you are, I’m prepared to share some resources I’ve found useful in developing my writing skill with you.
So, what are the resources I use to get better daily? There are many but I’ll restrict myself to the following. Call this the ultimate guide to article writing or content creation and you won’t be wrong.

What I’m saying in essence through this post is: writing is not as mysterious as we make it sound. It can be learned and mastered with constant practice. But if you’re one of those who still believe you cannot master the art of writing, you have the option of outsourcing but my problem with that is; how can you hire someone to do what you cannot do yourself? Because you don’t know how to do it, you’ll accept whatever the vendor provides. Why? You don’t know any better. But, if you force yourself to master how to write and you eventually outsource your writing jobs, you’ll be in a better position to tell the writer exactly what you want. So, my last line is: master how to write. It’s not as difficult as you think. And this quote by Norbett Platt says it all …
“The act of putting pen to paper encourages pause for thought, this in turn makes us think more deeply about life, which helps us regain our equilibrium.”
So, the next time you’re feeling queasy about writing, just know there are no excuses for not putting your thoughts to paper. ‘Just do it’, so says Nike’s run-off line. In other words, just do it, it doesn’t have to be perfect, just put your thoughts down. You’ll get better as the time goes by.
