When I was a student writing is difficult and time consuming for me, but like any complex job, writing is easier if we have the right tools. Writing strategies are the tools writers use to do their work. Good writing doesn’t happen by accident. Successful writers use mental procedures to control the production of writing. Writers use strategies all the time to keep their writing going and to make it come out the way they intend.

If you don’t know what to write, then write that. Just write. Just get your inspiration, let it flow as automatic cat feeder which automatically feed your cat. Have a quantitative goal: 500 words, three pages, five minutes — it doesn’t matter. Just write. Do not pause in order to spell correctly or write flawlessly, and don’t go back to rewrite. Turn off your inner editor. Do not strive for coherence. Just write. Consider closing your eyes while you’re writing or typing, or turn the computer monitor off.

Just write. You don’t have to start at the beginning, and you don’t have to complete one part of your assignment or project before you move on to another one. Just build on your background work one piece at a time as it develops, and just try , the more you try the ore skill you will improve.
