Writer's Block Obliteration Tip #8
Choose the name of a color and write a description of something with that hue, without ever mentioning the color. This exercise helps you be very mindful of what you're writing and forces you not to rely on clichés. Afterwards, give the piece to a reader and see if they can figure out what you're describing. If so, you're on the right track—but if not, you need to learn to rely better on the way you use descriptive language! Descriptive language is critical in effective content writing, but this exercise enables idea generation as well. I just created this movie about FrontLine Employee. You may like it.
