So mysterious this continue to come from anonymous contributors, thank you for the wonderful submissions again. This translation from the copyblogger's 7 Tips for an Authentic and Productive Writing Process.

You are sitting at the computer, facing the blank screen a daze. Seeing a turnaround soon, under normal circumstances, should now be modified in the final, you can own a word but did not move, still tangled how to open the head should be.

This scenario is not particularly familiar with that?

Whenever you concentrate, intended to write something good, but why on the whole body started itching at this time, tickled he did not quiet down. Had to temporarily put aside the idea of writing something, and then afford to buy one: Is this how is it? ! His stomach full of professional knowledge, how a moment like a belly full of waste water into it?

This situation, like the movie "turned something of" who has a dual personality in Dr, Jekyll suddenly turned into Mr. Like the scene when Hyde. I also had this experience.

I used to hate writing

Rather, I hate writing them even to the extreme level of hatred.

Each time a written copy of the task, I will try every means to delay, there is no way to start writing pen to paper. Also expect to get away, and deliberately did not know when their going to write something that children, thought best to luck not to be found, secure in the end waiting for this project to be off the hook. The results, of course, needless to say, must have their own time in the last handful of remaining in his mad rush copy. In this case write something natural than their true level of too much worse.

Inner confidence I did not become a full crazy!

The biggest problem I had writing process is not painful, but not from my heart a sense of self-confidence. This kind of insecurity led to writing when I have to face anxiety and fear, I am afraid to make mistakes, afraid to write ridiculous low-level article, fear that other people do not understand, and so the like. Inner self-confidence brought me no significant negative impact, almost made me go crazy.

Yes, this is the last of me. Can not believe the same person, right? Who in front of the now experienced 15 years of experience in this, too many awards, but also as an international design competition jury of me, and as an inner sense of inferiority, to avoid problems, anxiety, a stupid stupid link it? Differences so great, unbelievable. Indeed, the past is not the inner sense of self-confidence so that they are no reason to screw up a lot of things that caused me some painful memories dim.

Even worse, I have tried everything possible to hide the extreme of writing is not their own self-confidence. I think the reason a series of very blunt, compiled some of the lies to justify openly, to hide the real you. Of course, those lies did not fool stupid people, only further confirmed my what a hypocritical jerk. I was, like, like being a double split personality, and whenever I need to write and they will attack from the moment of his own into a Mr.Hyde Dr.Jekyll

University professor's words completely changed my

The company where I work was awarded to me for a free opportunity to study one semester courses. So, I chose a few training courses, including a writing class taught me made in writing on the proposal, said something to me, that completely changed my words, it is the best I've ever been valuable suggestions and help.

Professor said to me: "speak in their own way to write Write the way you talk."

What? And more! It sounds easy, but doing it do not so simple! No kidding? This is what a liberal idea, ah! Is this simple phrase to help me completely out of no confidence on writing, so I can freely write smoothly. From then on, I no longer avoid writing, but do not fabricate high-sounding excuse to stall the reason, I started writing in his own way, with its own unique language to influence the reader, leaving a deep impression on the reader. At the same time. My writing process has become more relaxed, I began to write their own things, with their own way to write, just write me!

Oh yeah! Almost to cause misunderstanding! I must first declare: "Writing with the way they said" does not mean people can say bad words are usually free to write, can not write the "three popular" content!

After the confirmation of the main points before they can go back and start modifying statements, paragraphs, drafting and other errors. After correction, the paper aside it Hanging out before it! A dry night, to come back the next day to re-read through the article. Think about what can be modified for improvement, or is it a better view.
