Public relations and writing go together like math and science, you can’t do one without encountering the other. But when it’s time to write that perfect pitch or media advisory, writer’s block is the last thing you want to deal with. Here are 5 quick and easy tips to prevent writer’s block:
1. Write Daily: If you write every day, it makes writing almost effortless and quickly becomes second nature. Even if you only write for 15 minutes a day, it will help you develop a habit.
2. Change Your Surroundings: Finding inspiration can be difficult when you’re always surrounded by the same 4 walls. Try talking a walk, writing at a coffee shop, or relocating your workspace to keep your creative juices flowing.
3. Read: If you’re having trouble putting together your own words, seek out inspiration by reading a good book. You never know when one sentence or paragraph will give you just the boost you need to write something brillant.
4. Sleep: Writing while sleep deprived is a recipe for disaster. Getting 8 hours of sleep at night helps recharge your brain, allowing you to think more clearly and creatively!
5. Keep Learning: Opening yourself up to new experiences helps to keep you fresh and cutting edge. Try visiting museums, taking day trips, or a class. The more experiences you have, the more you have to add to your writing.
