Five Things That Can Get the Writing Gears in Motion

It's pretty annoying how you tried hard enough to think of the possible words that will fit in with your assigned topic but with all the efforts, you just can't seem to start writing your first paragraph. Here you go, staring blankly at your wall and your content's deadline is fast approaching. It can be a pressured thing in your part to feel that way. Until such time where you need to rush your work just to get on with the deadline, that's really a bad writing habit to make.

There are times where you don't like your topic which is one of the reasons why you can't write productively. If a certain writer can't seem to understand his assigned topic, then how is he going to finish the work?

But you need also to ask yourselves if this situation happens in your life, why is there a lot of writers who are able to come up with flowing words in their mind even if they handle lots of topics for writing?

Everybody comes to a point when the words just won't flow. It's writer's block. You're stuck and you can't get out. You can approach getting over it in many different ways. However, there are still techniques in writing where it helps you to make words flowing out in your head. Here are a few I particularly favor.

Experiment with new things. Get up from your chair and try writing in a different spot. Vary your schedules, use a different software, take a snack - do something to change your settings and you just might set the gears into motion. Sometimes, I even get my software writing assistant to perform full-on rewrites and see if that shakes things up - I do make sure to always make a backup though. If not, try changing your writing habits. You can write from a different spot in order to refresh your mind and think newer things than the usual working environment you have.

Try freewriting. Close your commissioned piece for a moment and fire up a new blank page. Then, write whatever comes to mind. That is freewriting - writing about anything, in hopes of getting the juices to flow.

Form keyword and idea clusters. Instead of writing, just write down words and ideas that come to mind as a result of them. It helps fire up creativity and could get you on the road to writing.

If you are stuck in a particular section of your text, throw it out. It always hurts to cut out potentially good copy, but it is sometimes necessary. When you find yourself staring at the same sentence, wondering how to continue, the best course of action might be to just give up and start over.

Concentrate harder. Some people claim that the harder you try, the more difficult it gets. The opposite holds true for me. When I stare at the text, crinkle my eyebrow and focus all my attention, the block usually just works itself out.
