When I produce blog posts I prep about ten at once – add images, do research, create titles and subheadings, and the general outline – so that when it comes to actually writing the content I just…fill in the gaps.

Like a back to front version of your method, but with the same notion of separating editing and writing - the job I have to do and the job I want to do.

Whilst it’s great for productivity and makes my workflow enjoyable, it does mean that I have to be extra vigilant about typos. I’m trying to get better at rereading my work, but I skim, even when I KNOW I should be checking every word.

Since it’s the best way for me to produce regular content, I’m sticking with this method for now – maybe hiring an editor is my next step.

Or, you know, learning to read properly.
