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?

The Lifehack Show: How Exercise Slows Aging with Judy Foreman

In this episode of the Lifehack Show, we'll be talking with Judy Foreman about the major impact exercise has on aging, both physically and mentally.

Judy is a nationally syndicated health columnist who has won more than 50 journalism awards. She received a Master’s degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and was a Fellow in Medical Ethics at Harvard Medical School. Judy is also author of A Nation in Pain: Healing our Biggest Health Problem and The Global Pain Crisis: What Everyone Needs to Know.

Her newest book Exercise is Medicine: How Physical Activity Boosts Health and Slows Aging debunks some common myths about aging and shows that it is possible to reverse the effects we often think of as inevitable.
