Professional writers don’t have time for so-called writer’s block. We face too many deadlines to wait for inspiration from the muses. So, when we can’t think of the perfect words to start an article or even a letter, we might instead:
- begin in the middle, or at the end
- just bang out some prose, no matter how awful, and then go back to edit it later; this at least provides a starting point
- work on another pressing project, then get back to the “blocked” one later.
