John David Mann is an award-winning author (Nautilus Award, Axiom Business Book Awards, Living Now Book Awards “Evergreen Medal” for “contribution to positive global change,” et al.) whose books have sold more than 3 million copies in three dozen languages, including the bestselling classic THE GO-GIVER with Bob Burg and the New York Times bestsellers THE RED CIRCLE with former Navy SEAL sniper Brandon Webb and THE LATTE FACTOR with David Bach.

In that case I need to take a deep breath, step away from the laptop, brew a cup of hot tea, go sit in my favorite armchair with nothing but a pen and blank pad of paper, and just sit. Forget the material I've already drafted, or notes I've already made. Ask myself a few big questions. (Like, "What is this book about?") And then just shut up and wait. If all I get that day is one sentence, or a phrase, or hell, a few words, it's a good day. The second scenario: I've just been writing too much, pushing too hard, jamming for too long. It's like I've been breathing out, without breathing in. The only solution here is: stop writing -- and READ. Sometimes when I find I simply cannot make the words flow, I have to take an entire day off, or weekend (or, occasionally, full week), and just read. You can't breathe out if you don't breathe in.

(I write mostly nonfiction; I read almost exclusively fiction. Go figure.) Eat a steady diet of excellence. 2) Write regularly, consistently, in short form. That could be blog posts, editorials, short stories, newsletters, whatever, but short. (300 to 1200 words, max.) And then, work to perfect them. Hone them. Make them gleam. Work constantly to improve your writing. Note: If you have the opportunity to edit other people's writing, this is a huge benefit. Improving other people's stuff is a great way to sharpen your skills. 3) Get good critique from people you trust. Don't take it as 100% gospel, but do listen, even when it hurts. It will make your writing better.(less)
