The Final Powerful Secrets To Infuse Your Brain With The Write Idea Part 3 Of 3

This is​ the third in​ a​ series of​ articles with brain-tempting tips that will enable you to​ make your dream of​ authoring a​ book become your reality. Leaders today have a​ book. The best business decision you can make is​ to​ write a​ book as​ it​ provides you instant credibility.

Here are the final powerful secrets to​ infuse your brain with the write idea.

1. Making appointments with yourself in​ your personal planner or​ PDA will ensure you get some writing done. Often what gets written down gets done and your writing time is​ no exception.

2. Establish realistic time lines for long-range goals. View target dates with flexibility in​ mind. Be prepared to​ change direction temporarily if​ circumstances dictate it. Three thirty-minute writing sessions may be more realistic than one session of​ one and a​ half hours. Do not put undo pressure on yourself or​ you will act in​ a​ counter-productive manner and will find excuses not to​ write.

3. if​ you are watching television and the show is​ not really capturing your interest, take that time to​ write. if​ you have materials readily available and organized then shifting your attention to​ writing rather than watching won't be a​ problem. This applies equally well to​ other activities that aren't capturing your interest.

4. You write more effectively and efficiently by taking regular breaks during long writing sessions. Taking breaks is​ using your time wisely. The breaks allow the sub-conscious to​ take over and generate new ideas. Make sure you record these brilliant revelations!

5. Take one lunch hour per week. Eat a​ quickie lunch and use the time to​ write. is​ there a​ library or​ quiet spot near your workplace where you can go? is​ writing in​ your car out of​ the question? What about staying at​ your desk while others are away having lunch?

6. if​ you commute to​ work by train or​ bus or​ car pool, you can use that time to​ write. if​ you're usually the driver, perhaps you can be a​ carpool passenger once or​ twice a​ week so you can write during the trip. Make sure your car-pooling partners are aware of​ what you want to​ do during the commute. On vacation trips or​ other long drives, write while your spouse drives. Drivers are usually content to​ watch the road and concentrate on driving, so they will not miss your conversation.

7. Be ready to​ pounce. if​ a​ window of​ opportunity presents itself to​ get some extra writing time, pounce on it. These unscheduled spontaneous writing sessions are often most productive. Appreciate the fact that you must be ready to​ take advantage of​ these situations. These are golden opportunities to​ do something you love to​ do. Go for it!

8. View your practical every-day writing as​ an​ opportunity to​ hone your writing skills. It's attitude that's important here. Those thank-you notes, staff memos, friendly letters, emails, journal entries and special reports are all writing exercises that give you an​ opportunity to​ work on the skills of​ written communication. You can learn a​ great deal by writing in​ all situations. There is​ always a​ carry-over to​ other writing circumstances.

9. Keep writing tools (pen and paper) handy at​ all times in​ all places where you just might get the opportunity to​ write.

10 Writing breeds more writing. The more writing becomes a​ habit the more it​ happens. Research says it​ takes 21 repetitions to​ break an​ old habit and establish a​ new one. Writing for 5-15 minutes per day for 21 consecutive days should establish this writing as​ a​ regular habit. So give yourself a​ reasonable target of​ 21 repetitions to​ establish new writing behaviors.

11. Write quickly. Write legibly. Write legible scribbling if​ necessary. Use abbreviations like w for with and acronyms and the first parts of​ longer words only. if​ the only person who is​ going to​ read your notes is​ you, you can take whatever liberties you want to​ in​ order to​ get your ideas on paper and keep the flow going. Scribble now and translate later.

12. as​ you are writing, put new ideas in​ the margin of​ the paper as​ soon as​ they come to​ you. You won't interrupt the flow of​ your thoughts on the page because you already have some key words to​ help you and you have already been writing. Slow down to​ record your new ideas, but don't stop!

13. Use the Cloze method of​ reading for your writing. One technique for teaching students to​ read is​ to​ provide a​ paragraph with words missing. Students have to​ fill in​ the blanks with words suggested by the context of​ the paragraph. Use this same method to​ speed up your writing. Insert a​ straight line in​ your writing for words that you will know by context when it​ comes to​ transcribing your draft copy. Put a​ _______ in​ your writing as​ a​ placeholder.

14. Use acronyms in​ your draft copy. You can use the authentic conventional acronyms or​ you can invent some of​ your own. For example, ataw could mean Awaken The Author Within or​ b for book.

15. Learn to​ cover the page. Think in​ terms of​ starting every page as​ if​ you are going to​ cover it​ with writing as​ quickly as​ possible with quality ideas. Thinking this way will help you accomplish more writing.

Implementing these tips will get you off to​ the WRITE start.
