Writer’s block is an all too real term for many of us. Whether you’re writing a book or a letter, that horrible feeling that your brain is paralyzed and your creative thoughts suspended in time can be overwhelming.

Here are 5 tips that will make writing easier, faster and better:

Read Learn to distinguish good writing. Ask yourself what made it good and how you can use the same techniques. Pay close attention to titles, headlines and first paragraph. This is what drew you in.

Be aware Make an effort to learn something new every day. Feed your mind ideas and resources you can draw on.

Research your topic The more you know about your topic the easier it is to write about it. Look for the three most interesting aspects.

Organize Write an outline. Include details that support your points. Remember the outline is not set in stone. It can always change, but will help you stay focused as you write.

Start writing Let your outline be your guide. Write a first draft. Perfection is not required. Allow yourself time. The key to good writing is rewriting. The more you write, the better you’ll write.

Try to enjoy the process. If you still feel stuck, at Eagle Publishing, we write every day and we’d love to write or fine tune your writing for you.
