My solution is the same for both circumstances: just write! The more a writer thinks about what (s)he wants to say the higher the likelihood that (s)he will get bogged down and ultimately stuck.

The trick is to save the editing for AFTER you've finished. Allow yourself the opportunity to put something down into words and assure yourself that you'll give it its respective analysis in due time. This way you'll keep the flow going and will give yourself less of a reason to get mired down along the way.(less)

I enjoy having multiple projects occurring concurrently because it affords me the opportunity to shift gears if I find myself burning out on one particular manuscript. Plus, ideas from one (particularly if it is significantly different in subject matter) can serve to inform the writing of the other so I try to focus on one project at a time while keeping my mind open to others I intend to pursue later on.(less)

Is It All Downhill From Here? Why Flat Earthers, Moon Landing Deniers, and Anti-Vaxxers Represent a Societal Apocalypse in the Making

"I believe..."

Two words that have arguably more power than any other pair in modern parlance. Eight letters that belie an inherent subjectivity that has been subjugated in favor of misplaced, obstinate objectivity. People confuse opinion for fact with an utter lack of appreciation for factual information and undermining the very foundation of knowledge.

As for what I believe--I am of the mind t... Read more of this blog post »
