Being an entrepreneur doesn’t absolve you from having to write. Most small-business owners have a lot of writing to do. Whether it’s composing great content for social media, blog posts, books or client presentations, writing comes into an entrepreneur’s day in many ways.
It can also be one of the most challenging tasks to accomplish effectively. Here are five ways to cast aside your writer’s block and write more prolifically.
1. Write in blocks.
Writing is all about achieving flow. It can be difficult to shift back and forth between writing and other tasks.
Chunk out several hour-long blocks on your calendar for writing. When the time comes, consider moving locations — to a more comfortable chair or to a balcony with a great view, for example. Also, turn off your email, social media and text alerts, and minimize other distractions. Then, write as much as you can during that period.
