Simple Solutions For Writing Paralysis
_By Jason Anderson   © All Rights Reserved

better writingI find writing to be like pulling teeth.
_
better writingNow don't get me wrong. I enjoy writing - when I've finished doing it. And I'm a quick typist, so the actual typing bit takes no time at all.
_
_But for some reason the process of putting words to paper (whether it is an article, email, editorial, etc) is an exercise in frustration.

_I know that I'm not alone.
_
better writingIn case you have the same problems that I do, here are some of the methods I use to overcome the writing paralysis.
_

Do your research first
_
_Sometimes the reason it is difficult to write is because you don't know enough about what you are writing about.
_
better writingIf you are finding it difficult to write about your chosen topic, perhaps you need to do some more research. When you know your topic inside out, it is much easier to write about it.
_
_If instead you are writing about an idea you had, perhaps you haven't thought the idea through. Take a bit more time to think about the subject - preferably well away from where you write, so you don't feel under pressure to get words to paper!
_

Outline what you are writing
_
better writingMy english teacher used to go on about this in high school when we had to write essays - and I never listened! Now I've come to realise how useful an outline is.
_
_An outline gives you a direction for your writing - a defined path. Without it, you tend to wander aimlessly, and your writing ends up disjointed.
_
_The outline doesn't have to be long - just a word or two on each of the points you want to cover is enough to keep you on track.
_

Write first, edit later
better writing
_This is an easy trap to fall into (and probably the one that gets me the most). You spend so much time trying to get each sentence perfect that you never get anywhere!
_
_On your first pass, don't worry about what you are writing. Just write, no matter how disjointed or 'incorrect' the result is. Get the words down.
_
better writingYou will have plenty of time later to come back and edit things together.
_

Forget your current topic
better writing
_Called freewriting or brainstorming, writing down anything that you happen to think about (no matter what it is) is a good way to get yourself writing. You don't need to write complete sentences - just ideas and fragments are fine.
_
_You don't even have to write about your current topic. Just get the transfer of words from your brain to the paper starting to happen.
better writing
_The important thing when doing this is to keep writing. Don't let yourself stop. Even if you have to write "um, ah" a lot, keep the pen (or keys) moving!
_
better writingMany successful authors start each day by doing this.
_

Allow time for editing
_
_Once you have written your piece, let it rest for a time (a day is good - several days is even better if you have the time). Then go back and edit what you originally wrote.
_
better writingWho knows - the piece of writing that you thought was terrible (because you weren't stopping to edit) might actually be better than you thought!
_
_These ideas have helped me in the past with my writing. I hope they help you too.
