Steps When You Can’t Get Started Writing

Steps When You Can’t Get Started Writing

Starting to write is difficult, when you have no flow of ideas. I think many of you encountered this issue, and Judy Rose has no exception. She got together a set of steps to help herself on walking the first step. Once you have the first step, the flow will come:

  • Identify the purpose in your own mind
  • Let the reader know the purpose
  • Set the context
  • Know what you want to tell the reader
  • Organize your points in logical order
  • Before you close, repeat the purpose of the letter
  • Get rid of the mistakes
  • Think about whether the letter is too long
  • Watch out for that nasty computer!
  • Put it down. Have a drink of water. Come back and read it again
  • Reconfirm that you’ve done the job

Does it make sense? What are your ways to help yourself started on writing?

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
