Writing tip I'd like to share
Hello! I wanted to share a writing tip I picked up that's helped me quite a bit. I recently read an autobiography by Orel Hershiser. He was a hall of fame major league baseball pitcher who played most of his career for the Los Angeles Dodgers. In the beginning of the book he talked about how he overcame some writer's block.
He said that he envisioned himself in a coffee shop sitting across the table from a friend as he wrote. He said he wrote just as if he was talking to that friend in a normal conversation. This helped the words and sentences come to him more naturally and things flowed much easier for him. I found that this approach has helped me immensely when writing a blog or page.
Before I read his little tip I was so worried about using the exact correct word or phrase that the writing experience felt awkward and almost painful. I now picture myself sitting across the table talking to a friend like he mentioned and the words definitely come to me much easier. I just wanted to share this little tidbit of information in case it may help someone else. Thanks for reading and I wish everyone the best of luck!
