I have been pondering about my writing process lately. As I reflect on the type of writing I do, I am realizing the mindset required to create a long-form article is different from when I am writing a UX microcopy. The shorter the content form, the more involved the process.
As our profession evolves and advances, it is becoming evident that we have to pivot quickly to keep pace. To ensure I continue to be productive and creative at the same time, I have decided to track my progress when I go for my long runs and find paths that intersect with my writing. It has been an interesting revelation as I find several similarities between the two. How do you keep motivated and moving forward? No pun intended :)
Interestingly, I came across a blog on https://bit.ly/3kWJMHi in which the writer shares how his walks create the foundation for his creative work.
