To overcome writer’s block, I set a timer for 25 minutes and I have a piece of paper and a pen. I set the timer and I think of every single thing that comes to mind when I have a subject in mind. How it makes me feel, what it reminds me of, what it does, who I think it helps, who I think it’s for and what I like and don’t like about it. Without structure, I will keep writing until everything I can think of is written down. In doing so, this breeds new ideas, gets everything on a page so I can organize it further and I can start to see patterns in my work in order to complete something interesting.
