It can be daunting to sit down and write a book or even a chapter. Blogging is a great way to get into the habit of writing. It's not as intimidating to write an 800-word piece, and you only really have space to present one key idea, so it forces you to focus. After spending a couple of years blogging regularly I find writing long pieces far easier. Rather than writing an 8,000 word chapter, I feel like I'm writing about twelve blogs. This means that I only have to order twelve ideas rather than hundreds!
