This is exactly how I write. No ateucture, just an idea and off we go.

I have to admit to the headline coming last. I normally have a working headline, it rarely survives to the end.

My curation rate is awful, so now in the back of my mind I think should I research facts and figures for the post. Then I get grumpy because I’m not writing the way I want.

I have a duaghter, I want to earn a decent second income for the holidays and school shoes.

My solution, to keep writing the way I want and hope my followers bring in the bucks, rather than curation.

Thanks for the post, it’s nice to know I am not the only one.
