The Point: Use these tested methods to dissolve writer's block instantly.

  • Hey Ray,

    In this little lesson you just nailed Sir Issac Newton’s first law of motion:

    “An object in motion will tend to stay in motion and an object at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon by an imbalancing force.”

    I like your bottom line…Do whatever you must to get in “writing” motion, and you will stay in motion – it’s law…

    When I find that i’m worried about finding the right words and can’t find any words, I stop worring about anything. I don’t care about form, structure, spelling, punctuation NOTHING. I just do a brain dump of any fragments of thoughts that come to me. Before long I’ll have a pretty good outline that I can come back to, flesh out and clean up.
