Three Great Tips to Jumpstart Your Writing

Writers are constantly citing writer's block as a reason why their articles, books or other writing doesn't happen. And bloggers especially complain and ask, "How do you come up with something to blog about every day?"

1. Sit down and just let the words flow ... don't think about it, just do it. I call this stream of consciousness writing.

2. If you're having trouble picking a word or even picking a title, use your thesaurus. The thesaurus is a magical tool for inspiration. Just pick an associated word and use it and see what comes up that works for you.

3. Do an outline of what you want to write about and then just do what I call "back fill" the content with related material. Then use the other subheads and signposts to where you want your writing to go.
