I am a blogger. Or better still, I am a content creator. I depend on my copy to convince and to alert clients of the kind of services that I can offer them. So, I am constantly doing different types of copy in my advertising startup. And since I am a one-man army, there are times when I hit the blank wall and am burnt out. Yes, there are those days when I wake up and I do not want to see an empty word document because I will not know what to fill it with.
Before I hit this beating writer burn out strategy, I would have a hard time trying to get back on the right footing. It just seemed that there was no way that I could get my creativity or inspiration back. And when I hit the wonderful strategy, things have been looking up. So what is the strategy:
Keep my desk clutter free
I am a clean freak and so when the desk is dirty after maybe a reckless night, I will find that I will not be inspired enough to go on with my copy until I get the place tidy and all that.
Artworks and nice programs to make the whole experience amazingly relaxing
I like seeing nice artworks on my wall and therefore I am always seeking for nice ones that are going to keep me inspired and stoked throughout my writing. Currently for example I have the painting of an African mother carrying a load of firewood on her back while her baby is suckling. Whenever I look at it, I see resilience. I see an embodiment of industry and I feel that I have to emulate her. Other than artworks, I like having great softwares on the laptop that will help with my writing. For example whenever I am doing ebooks, I like using sqribble after I found this sqribble review that clearly states how the program works and its benefits in coming up with well illustrated and high quality ebooks.
Have good relations with those close to you
Anytime I am having a problem at home, I find that I cannot come up with copy because the domestic problems are going to bug me down and I am unable to write anything. So something I always try to do is to be in good terms with those at home or close to me at work so that my mind is able to come up with creations.
