1. Read before you write:
This is it! Reading has a vital role to play in the life of a writer. Every writer has to read books, articles or any readable things in order to write a good piece. You can tell the difference between Tony who loves reading and Sandra who is not keen to reading. Tony has wider knowledge to write while Sandra will be limited to her imagination when writing. Reading widen the minds of writers, it improves their writing skills to write on every angles and make them outstanding among other writers.
2. Be in the mood:
You have to get in the mood of writing. When you are the mood to write, writing block will not be your problem. Most of the time we can't put something down as writers because we fail to be in the mood and even though we did. It will not be good as when we are ready to write. It is only when we are ready we can be able to rest our minds, imagine well and the pen will do the talking with no blockage.
3. Write on topic you have interest:
You have to be in love with the things you write about. Be it a fiction, or non-fiction, comedy, or tragedy, music, or poetry. Your interest has to be there whenever you pick a topic to write, so you can be able to free yourself and you can be able to talk more on it. I love to talk about illusion and the type of leaders we have in my country in every of my poems because I have the interest for the both topics. You can't impress your readers if you don't have the interest for the theme you have chosen. It is your interest and the love you have for any niche that will broaden your brain to think and to write.
4. Eat before you write:
This is funny but I have to feed my stomach before I can jot something down. I feel tired and sleepy whenever I am hungry. It only when I have eaten I can be able to read, to meditate and to write.
5. Imagine before you write:
This is a mental picture in your mind before writing. It allows you to create your own world and the way you will transform it into reality is what make you a creative thinker and a writer. People want to read something different so you have to imagine in order to give them what they want. Because they are the benefactors of your written work.
