I rescooped this from my scoop it page. The original article comes from wiseinkblog.com. It mentions things that have already been said by famous authors, for example "the first draft of everything is shit" by Ernest Hemmingway. It also has other quotes that talk about not forcing your writing, which I found interesting because I know that many college students do that; I may or may not be guilty of procrastination myself. :)
I found this on scoop it while looking up random things that have to do with English and writing. This game is a perfect way to practice your antonyms, synonyms, and homonyms. I have never played it, but it does seem like it can be interesting.
Writer's Block. It sounds like a fearsome condition, a creative blockage. The end of invention. But what is it, really?
Elizabeth Pina's insight:
I found this article through different Scoop.it! pages I was browsing through. I'm sure most of us encounter writers block, and sometimes its harder to get past it than others. I could relate to #1, 2, and 4 the most. There are times where I start off writing very strong and out of nowhere I have no idea what to write next! Also, there are other times where my brain turns into a block of cheese and I have no idea how to start my paper or how to turn the ideas I have into sentences.
Those who have a regular meditation practice can simply add the writing immediately following it, and those who find it difficult to do traditional meditation will find this practice fruitful as the writing gives your busy mind something to do.
Elizabeth Pina's insight:
This article is from the Huffington Post. It mentions how if you write for at least 10 minutes a day it can be a form of meditation. It says to set yourself a timer for 10 minutes and begin by writing the words "right now" and just keep writing with no stopping. It does not have to make sense and just write about anything, including letting out things that bothered you that day. I found that very interesting because I know there are people that keep their thoughts to themselves and writing them out can help release some stress for people.
I rescooped this article from another ScoopIt page. I kind of find this funny because one of my biggest pet peeves is when people misuse these words. Sadly, this happens a lot (you would think that most people would know better).
