If you don’t feel inspired, just start writing…

content writer1That really is some of the best advice I’ve ever been given – and it applies whatever form of writing you’re involved in.

Whether that’s blogging for fun, writing fiction or copy, we can all struggle to get off the starting block from time to time.

paperThe best way to deal with it is just to write something  – anything you can think of – and take it from there.

Of course, if it’s copy, you’ll have researched your topic and know the right targets and aims to achieve. But you can still get that blank feeling when you try to get started and put those precious first words on the page.

Why not try prompts, from a thesaurus or dictionary – you can find plenty online to help give you inspiration. Or create lists of words and ideas, without over-thinking them, it helps jog your memory and sparks different thoughts.

And then really just free write and see what appears, and in no time at all you’ll have made a great start!

Although this advice could sound quite straightforward, like most things in life,  and also in writing- you just need to be bold and take the first step.
