Publicity for Toronto after Labour Day 2012
A Writing Tip about Research
A few days ago, I researched many of the Toronto events for September, and sorted them chronologically. I also ensure that I had images to go with most, if not all, of these festivals.
Today, with the deadline for offering guidance for the upcoming weekend, it was a swift matter to write the various sections for my article.
Admittedly, I did follow up and cross-check today...and found a couple of street festivals that had escaped my first sweep. But I would have been at a total loss without the prior research.
Regardless of your blog's subject matter, try researching more material than you need for just the next article, but save all the reference links. Later, write one article at a time but just re-check the references you had already found.
Not everyone will benefit from this; but this approach is especially helpful if you have to break up your writing efforts anyway. Rather than getting half-way through a combined "research plus write" session, stick to research one time and then write the next. If it helps, great; if not, my apologies but you're one step further in self-knowledge.
That still does not help me get to four street festivals, an art exhibit, vegetarian cuisine and Dragon Boat races in one weekend; but at least I know what I'm missing.
