This post is part of the A-Z Blogging Challenge 2015. If this is something new to you, check out the website here to find out all you need to know.
My topics this year are covering studying and/or writing advice and guidance, to maybe help you as you cope with everything else in life.
And so it begins ...
So here we are on the first day of the Challenge, and I started off with the usual problem of staring at the blank page wondering what to write. How many times has this happened to you?
Too many ideas are competing for attention in my mind, including non-writing tasks that are demanding to be done, and a lot of time is wasted with wandering thoughts getting further off topic.
All you need to get yourself going is to write something, anything, to push past the confusion. It can be something mulling around in your mind, the tiniest story idea to get it out of your brain and onto the paper/screen. Just write something and it will wake up your mind and your imagination and before you know it you'll be notching up the word count.
I try to start my writing day with a 15 minute free write, just to brush the cobwebs away and get focused into writing mode.
Why not try it yourself if you're feeling stuck?
