How do you approach your next writing task?
It’s certain everyone has their own direction, yet I tend to approach it similarly whether it is a blog post, a home page, a presentation deck, or more.
In short, I research the subject theme per my audience, compile the information into one source, consider my specific target (from my audience), write it all, and then edit.
Research: read, watch, listen, ask and keep digging to gather more information. Your knowledge, understanding, proficiency, and the actual task at hand will determine how much info you require.
Compile: begin listing and gathering valuable information, notes, thoughts, ideas, statements, phrases, keywords, and more into one document to paint you a bigger (yet rather messy) picture of your content data.
This process could be extremely short or take forever, but just get started and then get better; it is simply an approach I use to put it all on paper, and then I work to fine-tune the message, copy, and content.
