The most successful writers are not necessarily the best writers.
Some are. Most ain’t.
I’m not, that’s for sure.
What could most writers be missing?
- Talent? No.
- Passion for writing? Maybe.
- Time? Perhaps.
- Luck? A little.
All of these are important. I firmly believe, however, one additional thing is key to becoming a successful writer. Not a super rich one, or a famous one, but a productive and consistent one.
Productive and consistent is predicated on enjoying writing, writing regularly, and earning a good income from writing while profiting from additional income stream writing makes possible.
What’s this last thing?
A good writing system.
What’s a good writing system? I’d say it’s a system
- that helps with consistent output
- that provides structure
- that’s sustainable
- that’s easy to manage and utilize
- that helps you appreciate your achievements
What does this look like
My writing system is a comprehensive Notion-based template with complex, yet easy-to-follow database structures.
It provides a complete archive and backup section, a minimal and simple editor that works on every device I own (yes, even on the go, Medium), and an uncomplicated upgrade structure with add-ons, new options, and personalized sections.
Since I’ve been using and enjoying my system for over 1 year now on this Medium journey (and additionally for Substack, Vocal, NewsBreak, WordPress, and even YouTube), I’ve made this Notion template available for everyone.
It’s called Superwriter.
Anyone with Notion can use it instantly. Notion is free. It offers a lot. Superwriter is a great starting point to dive into Notion. Notion is a great companion for bloggers & Medium writers.
