There is something flat and unsatisfying about writing in a formulaic way.
Academic writing. Business writing. Marketing writing.
You do the work. You put the words together. You wait for pay day.
As a copywriter, the least satisfying type of writing for me is when I follow some kind of template or framework. That kind of structure may reflect a “winning and proven” approach to writing an ad, landing page or sales page.
But… I don’t get much pleasure from writing like that. I’m following the rules, but I don’t feel that I’m putting any of myself into the work.
