On Writing Well


Writing is a time-consuming process. If you are serious about becoming a very good writer as well as a sought after writer, time commitment is vital. There will be times when you just don’t want to write. There will be times when you can’t seem to squeeze a single word out of your head. Fear not. Every writer experiences these crippling symptoms of writer’s block.

You do not have to succumb to this temporary stale mate. Try the following to help rejuvenate your writing creativity:
Set a timer. I set my timer for 40-minute increments. This gives me dedicated times to focus on my writing. In addition, I allow myself to rest in 40-minute increments. I use those 40-minutes to take care of other personal business..

Take a walk. I find when I take a walk my mind becomes clearer.
Play nature music. This is the best remedy for my writers block. The sounds of the splash of ocean waves, chirps of birds, wrestling of leaves, etc. calms my mind and I produce much more focused writing.
Get at least 8 hours sleep. I know you have heard that sleep is the most important aspect of our lives. Without the appropriate amount of sleep, our brains cannot recharge. Fatigue hurts us in every aspect of our lives, especially our brains. So, get some rest. Maybe taking a power nap during the day will help reignite those creative juices.
