A Cool Tool to Beat Writer's Block

Ever stared at a blank screen, struggling to find the right words (or any words at all)?


Writer’s block!

Here’s how to beat it…

  1. Get started (even if you don’t feel like writing, which you won’t).
  2. Keep going (even if the words suck, which they will).

Simple, right?

What to Do If You’re Still Stuck?

Fake it. Seriously…

“Getting started and keeping going” is all there is to it. So the way to beat “blank screen syndrome” is to start pounding that keyboard, even if the words are gibberish at first.

Try it! And if you still need help, check out this awesome free training tool…

The Most Dangerous Writing App

Here’s How to Use It

Begin by selecting a session length (from 5 to 60 minutes) and hit “Start”…


Then you’re off…


It’s not called “dangerous” for nothing. Stop and you lose all the text…


Brutal? Absolutely! But that’s why it works.

You soon learn how not to stop!

Bottom Line Takeaway?

“Get started” and “keep going” and you’ll never suffer from writer’s block.

Use The Most Dangerous Writing App if you want. Or forget the app and just start pounding your keyboard. Either way…

The text you write will be surprisingly useful and get you on your way.

Short of NEW stuff to write about now that you’ve beaten writer’s block? Try this “QWIKI Hack!”

Cath Andrews is Solo Build It!'s Content Team Lead. She describes her day job and her online business, Raising Happy Chickens, like this: I get paid by a company I love for doing what my mother calls “playing on that blasted computer all day.” And that’s basically how it feels. I love the freedom it gives me, to be home with my dogs and work in front of a roaring fire in the winter, or take my laptop into my Italian olive grove in the summer. I love the joy it brings me, writing about things I’m passionate about. But more than that, I love the satisfaction of being able to help other people reach their potential. That’s what gives me the most sense of achievement. When I need a break, I “commute” fifty yards to visit my chickens. Then I “commute” back to the house again and write articles about my chickens for my website. Sharing my rather weird passion and, most of all, knowing that other people benefit from my knowledge, gives me goose-bumps. And goose-bumps are as important to me as the money my online business makes.
