I LOVE to write, both fiction and non-fiction. I wrote my 1st book in middle school, “The Secret Admirer”. It was a young adult novel, written in a similar style to Christopher Pike and R. L. Stein. I wrote it, by hand (computers were not mainstream yet) and I typed it up a few years later. The only person that ever read it, if I remember correctly, was my brother, Robert. He read it, did a book report on it, and even got an ‘A’. It was a pretty cool thing…
Now, most of my writing is focused on growing you business… even though if I had the time, I really should start putting the crazy ideas in my head down on paper, as some are just as good as a few of the downloads that I have gotten for my Kindle (I guess you get what you pay for, and they are free).
This year, I have wanted to write more, and I have started a number of articles and blog posts, but none strong enough to make a worthwhile read, so they just are there, halfway finished (hopefully one day I can salvage some of them to make full articles from them).
I wanted to share this blog with you and spend a minute talking about why you should write, and hopefully hear from you ideas to overcome writers block!
Writing articles, creating blogs, can be a great way to brand yourself as an expert as well as sharing your knowledge with others to help with referral marketing!
One thing that I have learned, from my younger days, is sometimes I need to get away from the computer, grab a pencil & paper, and write.
I have also learned if a piece isn’t working, I am better off to leave it, then to try and force it!
What do you do when you have writer’s block?
What can you do to keep those creative juices flowing?
