Arsenio’s ESL Podcast: Season 4 – Episode 105 – Study Skills – Overcoming Writer’s Block

Writer’s block. Luckily, I’ve never been through a situation (even in school) where I was completely stuck. However, most writers have this happen all the time. Entrepreneur Tim Ferriss says “write just one bad page a day.” If that’s not a good enough technique for you to at least have a foundation, here are three other ways.

  • Scribble: scribble ideas fast, in any order — whatever comes to your mind. Then rearrange what you have written and rewrite it.
  • Write by talking: if you find it hard to express yourself in writing, say it out loud and record yourself. Then copy this out and redraft it.
  • Write on a loose paper — not in a book: if you don’t like what you have written, you can throw it away. Alternatively, you can cut it up and rearrange it.

Let’s practice.
