From Shitty to Witty

Blank page panic is a real thing - staring into the blank page and feeling the expectations of amazing iterations petrifying you.

Here are three ideas that help when you get stuck:

1. Start by allowing everything on the subject matter to flow on paper – as Anne Lamott says, start with your shitty first draft. Write like no one is reading. Just write.

2. Take a short break, breathe, move, step away from the writing and then re-read. Look for sense, logic and no repetition.

3. Is your writing saying what you want it to say? Consider the possible interpretations.
