When writing is a fundamental part of your job, writer?s block can be more than a little frustrating. No matter how hard you want to work on that release or pitch, sometimes your brain just isn?t with you! Here are a few ideas to try out when your mind goes blank:
Ask questions ??Although we?d like to think we?re decent writers, sometimes the words don?t flow on the page as eloquently as they could.? Creating a rough draft or template and asking questions before handing in any final drafts is absolutely necessary in the writing process. If you?re not sure, speak up!
Google –?When you?re unsure about a brand voice, brand language or what is considered ?exciting? to a new client, Google for past releases or similar news items.? Never steal language that isn?t your own, but you might find a few new words or phrases that will do wonders for your writing style.
Scribble it out –?For whatever reason, sometimes it?s easier to be a better writer on a notepad or piece of paper than in front of a computer. Try moving to a different space in your office or taking a notepad to a coffee shop for 10 minutes to get some words to a page.
