5 Powerful Steps To Eliminate Writer’s Block
We all know what writer’s block is, and most of the time we are not happy about this experience. I battled with this issue for 3 months because mine was getting out of hand. Each time I tried to write something that was on my head, I went blank – the ideas are buried within my brain cells but no strategy to vomit them unto my book and then to my PC.
But I discovered a way to eliminate 95% of the factors that contribute to this. You will discover that the more content you have out there, the more influential and productive you will be. It’s not a good writer that wins in this blogging game, it’s the best writer.
If I have 200 guest posts on A-List blogs and you have 50 on the same type of blog, there is no way you can get more traffic than me. It’s just so simple and obvious.
Alright, here are the steps needed to eliminate writer’s block and set your writing in ablaze.
1. Set A Writing Goal
How many bloggers set goals before writing? I asked my readers one time and was shocked with the honest feedback. 70% of bloggers don’t even write down their goals and that is the problem. Until you set it out, make it a top priority, you’re not going to enjoy writing. It all boils down to what you love doing (passion). When I started out in this blogging game, I fell into this deadly trap and that was the beginning of my doom.
But today, I admonish you to write down your goals on paper and ink. Set out how many article you would write every week. For me, I write on my blog on Mondays and Thursdays. The remaining days are used for guest posting. But that’s mine, look at your Calendar and set your priorities right.
2. Every Idea Is Worth It
Does your idea seem worthless? Well, it does happen to every writer and blogger out there. You have that lovely idea but it just doesn’t make any sense. Here’s what I recommend: Don’t neglect that idea. It could be the best idea ever that encourages higher comments and tweets. Ideas usually drop on our brain like an egg in a nest. Write it down and later on, dig deeper into it and you would discover some hidden gems.
Remember: In every nonsense, there is sense. Mathematically:
Non + Sense = Nonsense
Therefore: Nonsense – none = sense.
I hope you like my tiny funny equation but look at it critically. It can transform your blogging career and make your write ups unique.
3. Write With Your Own Voice
You’ll continue to struggle with writer’s block until you find your own voice. Every blogger out there has their own writing voice, that is what differentiates you from the teaming crowd. Don’t try to be like any other writer out there – you can learn from them, read their blogs to get ideas but don’t follow their style. You’re unique and that is what sets you writing continuously, without any fear of accuracy or conciseness. Follow your voice, it pays great dividends.
Are you humorous, teasy and fun, let your words show it. Don’t be overly serious with your write up and if need be, tell a short story and your readers would love it.
4. Use Acronyms To Get Writing Ideas
I have been using acronyms to write my posts, it helps. It’s so simple but you’ll never lack ideas or concepts to produce interesting content.
Here’s what I mean: You can write an article post on 7 tips to I.N.C.R.E.A.S.E traffic to your blog. Each letter from that word “increase” is going to form a vital factor in increasing your blog’s traffic. First write down the meaning of those letters in your own way, your style and start writing. It’s the best adventure for writers.
5. Read Blog Comments
I have written several of my posts and guest posts from the ideas on comment section. There are helpful ideas when you go through concise comments. I don’t mean those spammy comments like “thank you,” I mean those bloggers that actually commented frankly.
Beginners can also ask intelligent questions and this could stand as your writing pivot. Don’t neglect this idea generation secret. It can help you in so many ways – e-book writing, article writing, public speaking, webinars and what have you.
With the above 5 steps, I don’t think you’ll still have problems fighting writer’s block. But there is something that makes this possible and that is: action. Step out today, and practice what you have learned. See you at the top!
