#48 — How I write every day without writer block
Things worth sharing each week
|Thomas Seng Hin Mak||May 22, 2018|
This is Thomas Mak from Macao. Here are things worth sharing this week.
What I’m working on
I’m back to use Ulysses as my writing tool. I migrated my CSS3 book writing into Ulysses and built a post-process script to make Ulysses export plays nice with Leanpub PDF generator. I also setup the css3effects.com domain for this book.
Migrated my work-in-progress book writing to Ulysses.
How I write every day without writer block
My writings happen either on iPhone or handwriting on paper. Both ways allows me to keep having words out without worrying about getting the spelling correct. The iOS auto-correct is accurate enough that I just keep my thumbs moving on the screen and words come out correctly. Same as hand-writing, I don’t need to ensure the spelling is correct when writing words, I can get the spelling right when digitalizing the hand-writing.
By forgetting spelling, I can write as if I’m talking and my mind can focus on constructing the idea word-by-word, sentence-by-sentence instead of character-by-character. That’s how I write without writer block.
