Writing good content, like anything else, requires proper research, planning, and execution. A prepared writer can implement a system to prevent writer’s block. Katie’s article, “The Prepared Writer’s Process for Creating Excellent Content Every Day” published on Coppyblogger shares a few tips to help prevent writer’s block and produce new content everyday.
One useful tip I took from this article was the importance of scheduling writing time. Scheduling time to write has helped me to avoid the excuse, “I have no time to write.” Even if you don’t know what you want to write about, still schedule the extra time, because this will help you stay consistent as a writer and have extra material ready.
It is also important to have a framework, know what you want to write about everyday. But, before you start to write, take some time and outline your ideas and then begin to write. If you’re stuck and can’t write, go back and refine and edit what you have previously wrote.
Here is a bonus exercises: creativity triggers if you get stuck
If you’re having trouble getting into the writing zone, take two minutes to do one of these creativity triggers by Katie:
- Read an unrelated article that is inspiring or funny
- Stand on your head (really, it gets the blood flowing!)
- Review your cornerstone content to ensure your post aligns with your goals
