The Boring Rule: When the writer is bored, the reader will be bored.
Is it a good idea to write when you don’t feel like writing? Probably not.
When I ignored the “boring rule” in some of my earliest posts, my writing felt unsatisfactory. I wanted to publish content for the sake of publishing, not because I had something interesting to share. There are enough Buzzfeeds in the world already.
It turns out that I write best when I’m enthusiastic about my subject. Remember, when the writer is bored, the reader will be bored. I would caution against directly publishing any piece the writer finds uninteresting. Revise it or leave it in your notebook.
