But only when you are:

1. Be Prepared
You will never master writing 500 words a day, if you’re not prepared.
Research is an obvious step that was discussed in the 3 golden keys to success in copywriting.
And as discussed here, there is a ‘science’ to writing 500 words a day, which includes:
- Prioritising a set time of the day to write (and stick to it no matter what)
- Mapping out your content calendar (with sequencing and deadlines)
- Being able to access all your content ideas in one place (always).
But never neglect the ‘art’, as copywriting is 80% art, and work on your mental game, that will allow a:
- Write approach (each time you sit down in front of your keyboard or put pen to paper).
The benefits of visualisation are tremendous, and to simplify the process, try ‘visualising’ a baseball batter stepping up to the plate (prepared for anything).
Or use whatever example works for you, but keep it:
- Just to one thing.
Because any person can master the ‘science’ of being prepared, but it’s those that master the ‘art’, that make writing 500 words per day, a habit of excellence for life!
2. Settle for Imperfection
Just keep writing, and never ‘perfect’ in this step, because step 3 (fine tune) is where you’ll achieve an acceptable standard for your content (discussed in this post).
Never get caught in the infinite loop of ‘perfectionism’ and ‘procrastination’, as explained here.
You are ‘prepared’ from step 1 (be prepared) and now it’s time for your instinct to kick in (golden key 3 of 3, discussed in this post).
Because a ‘stop’ and ‘start’ content writing experience, will kill all your ‘momentum’, and this is copywriting sin #4 of 12, discussed in this post.
As Henry Ford once said: “You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.”
So just write!
3. Fine Tune
Exactly as it sounds!
You have written content based off your:
But your content needs to be ‘fine tuned’, to meet your high standards, as discussed here.
So go on, ‘proofread’ your content (as many times as necessary), to make it shine.
And the beauty of this step is, it’s far simpler to revise content quickly, because it’s done.
And even better?
As each day passes, you will become a better writer, which leaves less fine tuning and more writing.
That’s someone to celebrate!
As the great Jim Rohn once said: “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”
Write that down. Keep it close.
Remembering: Whenever you feel stuck, lost or confused, that writing 500 words a day is a habit worth getting ‘fanatical’ about, because it not only makes a difference to your life, but other people’s lives.
And with that, be prepared for big results to come your way!
