50 Writing Strategies

Jenn's post below reminded me of an email I received linking to an article titled 50 Strategies For Making Yourself Work. It was written by Jerry Oltion and it's interesting - I highly recommend you take the time to read it.

Not every tip works for everyone, but some of the strategies are very useful. You can find the list at


  1. I've never worked to music (I singing along too much LOL) but I'm going to try some instrumental CDs with my earphones it to see if I can shut out all those distractions around me.

  2. Hey Jenn,

    Let me know how you go with the music. I'd be very interested to see if it helps you.

    I find it really useful to listen to music when I write. Sometimes a song with interesting lyrics inspires a scene or a word triggers an idea. And yes, it stops you from being distracted by other things around you!
