Cures for Writer's Block

Writer's Block. We've all had it, I've had it these past few days. But whether you are writing an essay or a blog article do not fret my friend, because there are cures for the dreaded writer's block.

Cure Number One: Make a List
One of the easiest ways to cure writers block is to make a list of things that relate to the topic. For example, you are asked to write on dogs but haven't a clue where to start. Well, you can start by listing breeds, colours, sizes, attitudes, living conditions, personalities and so forth. You then look at your list and connect relating items.

You must do this, must do that.
Like a chicken in
the mouth of a wolf.

Rebel,
the chicken hears,
and go your own way.

The chicken
bites the nose of
the wolf,
and flies away.
