So you've decided that you'll set aside time to write every day, and maybe you've even scheduled a particular time to write.

You know you want to write from your soul.... it's the only way to truly to connect to your community and potential customers and get your message across.... Your deep message, the one that's so all-fired important that you have to get it out in the world.

So you figure you'll just fit it in between dropping the kids off at school and your first client phone call at 9:00am.

Easy-peasy.... drop off the kids, walk in the door, grab your computer, sit down, and start writing from your soul...

And write powerful, impactful blog posts, articles, sales pages, and marketing emails.

And be done by 9:00am.

Of course, your mind doesn't stop. "I have to get such and such done before my 9:00am call." "I have to remember to respond to that email." "My assistant is waiting on that response from me." "I should call the three prospects for my new program." "Soccer practice is at 7:00."

Maybe not so easy after all.

Yes, you have a busy life. Yes, you have many commitments. Yes, you're trying to do it all.

But you can't force writing from your soul.

Now, that doesn't mean that if you're not feeling it, you just give up (and give in) and go answer those emails and do those tasks.

There's a process to writing from your soul. You have to figure out exactly what works for you, but here's a start.

1. Set a time to write. This can be every day or a specific time that you need to work on a project. Schedule it in your calendar. Don't let yourself give that time away; no exceptions. Turn off your phone (or put it in another room). Close out of your email programs.

2. Pay attention to your environment. Can you do this kind of writing in your office, or do you need a different environment and different energy? Plan for that and go to that place. Set yourself up for success from the very beginning.

3. Sit quietly for a few moments. You're going to have mind chatter; just accept that. Give yourself a few moments to hear all the crap that's going on in your head. Then, thank your mind for sharing, and turn your thoughts to your project.

4. Tap into your purpose and your audience. What is it that you want to write? Why? Who is going to read it? What do they need to hear? Why is what you have to say so important? What is it that you're going to share with the world? Connect to that deep place inside and just BE from there.

5. Just write. Forget perfect. The most important thing is to get those core feelings, the essence of your soul, out into words. You're capturing the pain of your readers and the relief of your solution. You will come back to it later to polish it up.

You can write from your soul. You just have to give it a little help.
