“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been
written yet, then you must write it.”
- Toni Morrison
It’s a blessing when you get so in the flow and start creating charm with your magical words.
But when you’re new to the field. The process seems an endless cycle of suffering and pain. It doesn’t matter how hard you try; you’re never satisfied with what you wrote. You feel average.
The clock is ticking and it feels like the world is falling apart. Like if it takes millions of years to master writing. You might even start telling yourself that you're not good enough. Maybe someone else should do this blog post.
Don’t worry, we have been there.
When working on our new website, we had the whole team involved in the articles creation process and it was a total mess at first. Everyone was writing in his own way, using slangs and sometimes jokes. We thought that we could handle this in the editing process but it took us a lot of time to even produce one blog post.
There were many books and articles to come in the queue and people where running out of patience. We started sending several resources from different places and then thought to ourselves and it helped pushing things a little to its main track. But we couldn't find a guide that helps our teams in their process.
If we face this problem as a business, then maybe other teams faced it too. Maybe other teams need a guidance as well.
So we decided to turn what started internally as a side project into a book hoping that it would help you pass over your sleepless nights of guilt and discover the true fun behind creating and publishing content that people love you for.
Also, we tried to outline the basics and the ethics of the online writing to help you have a good kicking point and start writing your first draft.
We understand that you can't relate to all the writing problems until you encounter them that's why reading the whole book at once might be overwhelming. And since this was made to be our internal guide, we decided to write it in a way that allows readers to read per problem. So all you have to do is to search the index, spot on the problem you're facing and flip through the pages to solve it.
