I have an imaginary boyfriend for a reason, not just because I’m single and lonely. I keep him for the LIFE of this blog, to crush my writer’s block whenever I have one.
Today I will write on 3 ways your imaginary friend/boyfriend will help you with your writing.
1. Talking to one is easier than to 10 people or 10,000
If you write knowing your audience consists of 10 to 10,000 of people with different colors, background and expectation, it could be daunting. You don’t know where to start or which aspect to address first.
Creating an imaginary friend for your blog is similar to identifying a customer avatar for a business model, and that avatar is ONE person. It’s very relevant since anyone who read your blog, they are reading it alone, not doing it aloud together with a group of others, right?
2. Your imaginary boyfriend loves you
He is a real fan. He loves everything you write. He supports everything you do.
Knowing this, you will be excited to impress him more. You’re not worried if your ideas not going to be accepted because you know this person likes everything about you. You have no doubt of what you are going to express and you won’t limit yourself to that doubts. You won’t be afraid of rejection so it’s easy for you to go all out with sharing your ideas.
3. You love your imaginary boyfriend
You will be looking forward to have conversation with him. Tell him your dreams and challenges. Share your life updates. Try to solve problems he might have. Try to entertain him and just be his good friend.
He would be the first person you want to share your newfound idea, good news or even the bad one and you will be very EXCITED to let him know – it’s almost impossible to stay quiet (writer’s block) when you’re excited, right?
Can you just love people so badly but have nothing to say to them?
