---- Writers' Block: Breaking Out With Ten Simple Ideas
engine - 5:38 pm on Feb 6, 2007 (gmt 0)
1. Start in the morning by clearing the desk of everything.
Have you ever had one of those days/weeks/months when you can't get that writing project started?
It happened to me last week and I thought I should know how to get over this.
So I set about reminding myself of a few ideas I use (I thought they may help you):-
2. Switch off the phone/e-mail, etc., to eliminate distractions.
3. Write some/any bullet points about the subject in question on a blank piece of paper.
4. Expand the bullet points one by one, on new paper if needed.
5. Try and draw relationships between the bullets. I find that helps make the document flow.
6. Analyse and extract from the best from the bullets and write down of a clean sheet of paper, if needed.
7. Try and expand each bullet, even by only a paragraph or two. Again, clean sheets of paper as required.
8. Now, take a walk in the fresh air, but don't stay sitting at the desk.
9. Come back refreshed to plenty of bullets to start writing for real using your favourite writing tools (pen & paper, or word processor).
10. If that didn't work, either the mind is too cluttered to focus, and/or, you haven't researched the subject enough. Either start fresh the next day, and/or research more.
What are your tips to get over writers' block?
