If your web business relies on solid content, then you know all too well what it means to your marketing. Writer’s block affects millions of people to varying degrees, and you have to move on this if you encounter it in your writing. You cannot ignore this and hope it will go away because chances are it will get worse. So we know you want to come to grips and do something, and the three suggestions that follow are for you.


One thing you need to know is what your readers want from you, and you can help remember that by writing them down. Also, what that will do is keep you focused on what you need to include in your writing. Even creating a basic profile of your reader can give you the much needed leverage and help you create better content. When you write the outline, you will have major points and then supporting data for the points. Some people tend to work too long and do not take breaks, so just work on taking breaks. ¬†Relax do something you enjoy that is easy on the mind, I tend to enjoy watching the BBC perhaps an episode of Dr Who or something – I recommend this –Smart DNS service for those outside the UK.

How you want to do this will need to work with your basic total amount of time you can devote to the writing.

You could actually write easier and with less worry or stress since you know that you can stop soon and break. If you try this and it just does not fit for you, then throw it out and go to the next technique and see what happens.

Writing is hard to do, so you should be sure you listen to your body and mind when it comes to your emotions and feelings. But on the other hand, sometimes you just have to get off to a slow start and build on it so you can get something done. For example, some people write better when they wake up early in the morning, and there are others who like writing late nights when everyone’s sleeping. Like with all else in this, you have to explore as much as you can and be willing to follow your hunches. Creating great content for your online business requires you to do it on a consistent basis, and that will only be possible when you know how to bring in the flow. So you can use these tips plus there are more on the net, so do some research on your own. Regardless of what you aim to achieve out of your content, you have to work your way up by being consistent. You will find that things will get a lot better over time, and that is all that matters with this.

Getting started as a writer is obviously not easy especially when you’re new to writing.  Even getting to the end of that first story, book or screenplay can take an eneormous amount of effort.   But fortunately there are resources online which can help you and definitely one of the best is The Writers Room on the BBC website.

It’s split into sections which can help writers whichever point in the process they find themselves at.  The first section for example deals with people who have not yet completed a piece of work.  Perhaps they’re stuck at how to start or need some sort of guide or structure to follow.   Generally the information here is about scriptwriting although the advice is just as useful for writers in all areas.

You’ll find a series of articles and guides on various types of writing scripts – for radio, theatre, movies and of course television – obviously tailored to the UK.  Each of the sections also comes complete with example scripts from successful shows, series and plays.

It’s truly a wonderful resources, you’ll find ideas on how to develop stories, character development and what to do when you get stuck.  What makes a great character for example – we’ve all probably got our own ideas. However getting the opinion from one the worlds most successful and oldest broadcasters is probably worth knowing too.

There’s a more practical side to the site too, with a huge library of shows, dramas and scripts to study.  Some of the hows are linked in to BBC Iplayer so you may need a site like this –, if you’re not able to watch UK television due to your location.  Further more there are lots of regular updates including opportunities and vacancies.  Also you even have the chance to use the site to upload your scripts directly to the BBC, how amazing is that?  However that is now restricted to specific windows in order to keep the numbers to amore manageable level – you have to keep an eye out on the site for a date.
