How to start an article
Three tips on getting started
You’re not alone. Writers are often overwhelmed by the pressure to produce something brilliant, and it can be tempting to just give up and move on to something else.
But don’t! Stick with it.
1. Just write like yourself—the best version of yourself that you can be at this moment in time.
2. Let it flow! Don’t worry about grammar or spelling or punctuation; just let the words pour out of you onto the page, as if they were being dictated by some unknown force (they are).
3. When you feel like you have nothing left to say, keep going anyway! Write until your fingers hurt from typing too much or until your eyes feel dry from staring at the screen for too long without blinking enough times in between sentences so that it feels uncomfortable when blinking starts happening again because there’s nothing there anymore but white space between paragraphs where those words used to be? That’s fine! Just keep writing until those things happen—then stop for now and come back tomorrow (or today if tomorrow is already over).
