Disclaimer: This post is written purposely to serve as my notes. Nothing more than that. Really rushing today and can’t even write a decent post. Nonetheless, if you happen to see this, feel free to check on Kevin Lee’s post. I shared the link below. And I have a few notes for myself too that I took out from Kevin’s post. I hope you find this helpful.
I found this article that I am looking forward to putting into action, hoping to see if the process is going to work for me. Being a writer for almost 10 years, I have developed my own strategy. But this strategy is the coolest because you get to time your work for each process. Anyway, here is the link to the article.
I wrote some important notes for me here too:
Important to use: Free time-tracking tool Toggl

I particularly enjoyed a system I used when starting out at Buffer: The 3-day Blogpost Process. It worked like this: Day one: Research, Day two: Writing, Day three: Editing
This is indeed a great resource for writers. Check it out. Please don’t mind my own notes here. The notes are totally meant for me, for my reference once I put my head into writing.
Thank you and hope I have shared something valuable today.
