Blogs from a month without internet: "I feel freer today"

365 texts creativity a month without internet writing
Reflections and drafts

Interview. Interview. Interview. I've been working on interviews for the third day in a row and there's no end to them - I'm moving like hell with them. And if anything, today is the seventh day of the month.

By the way: I wrote this blog in December month without internet years. Today I finished it, fixed it and show it to you.

Interviewing is less about writing and more about correcting what others have written. And I really need to find someone to take care of the interview stuff for me:

  1. First you need to find an idea.
  2. Then you need to find a person. Sometimes these first two moves are interchanged or occur almost simultaneously.
  3. Then you need to contact the person.
  4. Wait.
  5. Send questions or otherwise present them in the most convenient way for a person.
  6. Wait.
  7. Get answers. Analyze them.
  8. Ask for a supplement.
  9. Wait.
  10. Get answers. Analyze them.
  11. Repeat the eighth move or say "thank you".
  12. Request photos, links, videos and other visual parts.
  13. Wait.
  14. Finally, after receiving everything, start organizing: putting the answers in the right order, dividing and cleaning the text, clarifying it and creating a useful interview. It takes me a few hours each.
  15. Send text to editors.
  16. Wait.
  17. Get the corrected text. View what's written, accept or reject corrections.
  18. Then analyze the text again and check it one last time.
  19. Upload the text to the publication platform.
  20. Edit styling by platform.
  21. Choose the right headline, main photo. Additional links, photos and more.
  22. Select the start time.
  23. Prepare a pre-launch promotion. That is, to agree with the interviewer, other distribution channels that are waiting for the interview to appear.
  24. Wait.
  25. Run the interview.
  26. Promote it. Report to your channels.
  27. Wait.
  28. Promote it again. Additional, related channels.
  29. Wait.
  30. Make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and go find a new idea or person.

And, dear God, it's all too much for me. If I would like to communicate and take interviews - that's great, it's nice, because you don't need to think much (except for all the stages where you need to think).

But for me as a writer-to-be... It just distracts from my real work. Distracts from teaching thoughts. It distracts from what is most important - writing. Writing.

I need someone who enjoys interviewing or wants to learn how to do it. Because I will thank him with endless thanks and euros.

P.S It's already getting better today - I'm no longer in pain when I'm not connected to the internet, I feel freer and more productive today. Focused on what's more important.

During the interview,
