Today I am facing a huge challenge! I am currently working on Phase 3 of the Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp, lesson 6! Today’s task is called ”Power writing gone wild”. More precisely, my task is to write for 30 minutes straight and when an alarm goes off, I HAVE TO STOP and post my results in a discussion thread.
This page is for everyone who would like to learn how to improve their writing skills. As always, I will share my experience which I hope will be very useful in your business endeavors
What a challenge
I am writing this in real-time and feeling stressed a lot. Lol. But this is positive pressure. Grammarly is catching my typing mistakes, and I am trying to ignore them since my goal is to write as much as I can of quality content in the next 30 minutes.
Holly Molly! I have 24 more minutes! Haha! Ok.
Let’s get serious.
My first blog posts
My first blog post was born on July 26th, 2016. That was the first day of my Wealthy Affiliate journal. That seemed like the best way to start. I was afraid of making mistakes and being judged, so I decided to write only for Wealthy Affiliate members. I had great motivation, though. I wanted to record each step I take along my Wealthy Affiliate journey.
Communication in English wasn’t so challenging for me anymore, after the years I spent working for the Carnival Cruise Line, but writing. Hmm actually, writing for people, that’s the new life chapter. An advanced English level for me.
15 more minutes
Oh my God! I’ve written 256 words in 15 minutes? That’s almost half of the post, and I almost said nothing. Lol
My average time for writing a blog post is about 3 hours, and this is such a big challenge!
Well, my dear friends, readers, if you are still with me, thank you so much!
Make a short script of your page
I should have planned each chapter on this page.
Ok. So I had a clear idea of what to include on this page. But I haven’t written subtitles on the paper. And I was supposed to do that right?
It would be much easier now to go through this challenge. However, that’s something that improves writing a lot. This time I was just into beating this challenge 🙂
It’s so important to stay focused. No matter what’s going on around you, STAY FOCUSED. Stay on top of your work. It’s your time, it’s your commitment!
I am working at home, while my whole family is here. And guess what? I have my headphones on listening to relaxing music with binaural sounds in the background. And I hear nothing but my music 🙂
Try that; it’s so helpful!!!
Binaural sounds increase my concentration, focus, and stimulate my inspiration.
Whether I am going to work or not that day, my morning routine is always the same. And I take quite a long time for my spiritual practice and waking up the whole of my being.
I wake up between 3:30 am and 4:00 am.
- Listening to affirmations
- Drinking 3 cups of water
- Yoga session for 45 minutes
- Pranayama breathing exercise
- A little bit more meditation
- Ginkgo Biloba tea
- Smoothie made of fresh fruit – vitamin bomb
After that, I am ready for the rest of the morning/daily routine.
P.S. Ever since I’ve been practicing this routine, I realized that I’ve been more focused, inspired, open and I’ve increased my self-confidence a lot.
35 more seconds!!!
I will take a snapshot of this page so that I have recorded what I have done!
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1!!!
The Summary of an updated version of this page 🙂
Ok. Let’s review what are my tools for improving my writing skills:

- Accepting all kinds of challenges that Kyle gives us (he is a very successful online marketer, a great example, and mentor)
- Using all the benefits that Wealthy Affiliate membership gives us (lessons, tutorials, live chat, support, networking, blogging)
- Planning and Prewriting a short script of the page including keyword research for which you can use so far the best tool called Jaaxy. As a Wealthy Affiliate member, you get to be a Jaaxy member FOR FREE. Try it out right away here:

- Being kind to yourself
Here are my screenshots. Notice my Grammarly corrections that I had to ignore. And I am such a huge perfectionist. This lesson was a hard but fun challenge for me.
As usual, Kyle encourages us to post our new pages in a post thread he includes in almost every lesson.
The purpose of it is to exchange feedback with other Wealthy Affiliate members, get some insights, suggestions which lead towards an improvement of the marketing skills. Here is mine 🙂
