The System Jeff Goins Used to Write 5 Books and Over 1,000 Blog Posts

Most writers struggle with getting their writing done for one surprising reason. They think writing is a one-step process, when in fact, it’s a three-step process.

What we call writing” is actually made up of three distinct activities: coming up with ideas, turning those ideas into drafts, and then editing those drafts into publishable pieces.

I’ll begin using this method going forward. In Ulysses, I made three different folders:

  1. Ideas
  2. Drafts
  3. Publish

All of my stalled writing projects will fall into one or two, which will allow me to focus on them to eventually bring them into three.
