What I have trouble with is maintaining inspiration. I never not have anything to write about. In fact, the opposite: I have so many ideas, topics, personal experiences to write about that they often overwhelm me. And that feels like a burden sometimes. How do you determine which ideas and thoughts are worth pursuing and developing, Sean? That perhaps could help me.
I agree that any subject that you have a slight interest in starts working when you actually begin to write about it alongside doing research. I wrote 1500+ word articles that were started out as a short and brief 500 word piece but I realized they are even more complex than I thought.
Overall, you summed everything up really well.
