This Simple Writing Trick Will Help You Overcome the Inertia of Perfectionism

When you have to create fresh topics for your blog each week, sometimes you just feel stuck.

Or maybe you can’t nail down your unique selling proposition that sets your business apart from the competition.

Perhaps you’re still wrestling with ideas for your email autoresponder series.

All of these issues are completely normal for writers who continuously aim to serve their audiences.

Since finding a way into your readers’ hearts and minds is your goal, you can exhaust your brain trying to find that perfect connection. As a result, instead of producing the perfect piece of content, you accomplish very little or nothing at all.

Several years ago, Bryan Collins discovered a writing trick that helped him overcome these types of perfectionism problems.

And in tomorrow's post you'll learn exactly what that trick is. Stay tuned.

Food for thought …
 
The first issue from my new project, Further.
The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails. ~ William Arthur Ward further: feature Blame silly books like The Secret. Or blame Oprah for promoting silly books like The Secret. Whichever way you go, the result remains the same — spending your time thinking positively about …

Here’s How Daniel Pink Writes

Mr. Pink is an exceptional teacher who delivers keen insight for passionate, innovative, and hungry writers and entrepreneurs alike.

From his last “real job” as Chief Speechwriter for Vice President Al Gore, to his prolific freelance work challenging outdated beliefs about finding success on the “new frontier” of work, his message always resonates loud and clear.

By working smarter, not harder (i.e., drowning in corporate anonymity), it is far more likely to find authenticity and meaning in your work life.

Mr. Pink found time to drop by The Writer Files to share a spot-on definition of creativity, admit his own struggles as a writer, and share a helpful writing technique for when things get ugly.

"Listen to an eclectic mixtape created by Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain in 1988."

So this is weird ...
Kurt Cobain was always a champion of weird underground bands and the classic rock titans his band would soon join in the history books. Now there's a new document of his rangy, funny and influential tastes in music.

Here’s How Elizabeth Gilbert (Bestselling Author of Eat, Pray, Love) Writes

Very few writers, regardless of their specialty, can claim the honors of a National Book Award nomination, a hat-trick of National Magazine Award nods, and a #1 New York Times Bestseller, all to their credit.

Elizabeth Gilbert can.

Throw in her radiant new novel, The Signature of All Things, that TIME recently named one of the “10 best books of 2013,” and you have a true marvel.

Now you get to peek into her private life of writing (including her desk):
