成为更有创造力和生产力的作家的9个秘诀

成为更有创造力和生产力的作家的9个秘诀

读者评论(110)

    • I agree with 那, for the most part, but then 我可以 also relate to Stephen King’s claim 那 he doesn’不要保留笔记本,因为如果一个主意足够好,它就会留在他身边。

      • 我确定,那将是我的毁灭。一世’d obsess about so 人y ideas I had but couldn’记得确切的想法。

        公开演讲更经常发生这种情况。一世’m always saying “我第一次说这是最好的时光,为什么’t I record 那?”

      • For me, the worst thing is when you have a half formulated idea in your head 那 just keeps bugging you. 我可以 never put my finger on it 和 just get a fuzzy kind of outline –故事的总体思路。

        I always get worried 那 I’浪费了一个巨大的机会,但是经过一个星期的吸管,最终却忘了这个主意。

    • 我将笔记本放在后兜,便签纸或文件放在前兜,盒子和抽屉里,从句子到概念,不一而足。和螺旋笔记本–3 of them–在我的手提袋中,其中一些想法和概念实际上已经充实了。
      抓住这些想法,将它们放下,放在某个地方’以后会刺激你的…

  1. I hate 那 quote by Dorothy Parker. It’s like a baseball 玩er saying “I hate 玩ing ball. I 爱 having 玩ed.” Or a chess 玩er saying, “I hate 玩ing chess. I 爱 having 玩ed.” Really? 您 don’喜欢写吗?那再找一份工作。

    当然,写作是很难的,但是在与书面文字的斗争中还是有乐趣的。连接点。行为本身就是一种回报,最终产品也是如此。所以我喜欢写作,也喜欢写作。

    Otherwise, good 文章 丰富ard. 😀

  2. 和你的狗一起玩!

    那’s classic 和 it’s the one thing I do when writing 那 we both 爱 🙂

    猎人实际上知道我的脸’米在拉拉(Lala)土地,地板上将迎来一个良好的滚动…

    而且有效。

    Thanks 丰富ard. Good post.

  3. 我同意Demian Farnworth的观点。
    我喜欢自由写作,’成为创意写作的最好方法-
    否则,这是一篇好文章。

  4. Hi 丰富ard,

    Great 文章 . One of my daily rituals for 创意的 inspiration is taking a walk. I try not to think about anything in particular, instead, I thoroughly take in the scenery. I find this 帮助 to unleash a lot of my subconscious thoughts-which 我可以 then use in my conscious state.

    我也从淋浴中获得灵感-这对于许多作家来说似乎很普遍。那里’这是一种记下您的想法的方法,而又不会使您的浴室地板浸入浴缸或跳出浴缸来抓住笔记本和笔的状态。

    Aquanotes are waterproof notepads 那 you can stick to your shower wall-so you’你的好主意永远不会让你迷失。

    • 散步,远足和跑步为我工作。我保留的淋浴是为了独处。关于防水注意事项的有趣想法。经过良好的笔记会议后,看到结果将是一个有趣的画面。

  5. 哈!我是在写帖子的中间,刚刚失去流动。瞧!您的文章出现在我的邮箱中(当我检查邮件时,正在设置民主化)。我喜欢“play”。有时我只需要退却所有这些东西,为自己的创意果汁补充能量。我再次感到鼓舞,并准备再次开始。好主意!

  6. 很棒的提示。

    I definitely agree with taking notes. Often times I think of ideas for a post in the most random places at the most random times, so it 帮助 to have 某事 to capture those ideas to be put into 玩 later.

    Sitting down 和 trying to think of post ideas never works for me. Like you said, go 玩 with your pet or 某事 那 gets your mind off of whatever you’再努力,一个想法最有可能在您最不期望的时候突然出现。

  7. 运动使我的大脑工作。我已经习惯在固定自行车旁边放一本笔记本了。回到做笔记的想法。我忘记了很多伟大的史诗。现在,我一直在努力使笔和纸始终随处可见。

  8. I 爱 the simplicity of this. Sometimes the best way to be productive at writing is to NOT write. Feeling obligated or 人dated to create 某事 valuable 和 incredible this instant is often the roadblock to creating 某事 spectacular. I find 那 getting outdoors for a bike ride or a hike allows me to return to the work space with new 创意的 ideas 和 a spike in productivity. Great tips here!

  9. 冒险地冒险是生活中任何非凡成功的好方法。当然,这也适用于写作。这可能是最难的事情之一,因为您永远不知道确切的结果。

  10. 感谢您提供有关思维导图的提醒。我的商务教练提供的一项家庭作业是创建思维导图。

    I carry my BlackBerry 和 pens 和 pads of paper with me so 我可以 write down my ideas.

    我使用的另一种技术是关注周围的谈话。是的,我’我是一个窃听者-如果您只是听着,就会发现有多少篇文章,电子书,书籍和博客文章的想法,您会感到惊讶。

    I do need to 玩 more. In fact, I think I’ll start right now.

    周末愉快!

  11. Note taking 和 free writing are the biggest ones for me. In 印象笔记 I have notebooks for Blog Starters 和 one for Sermon Starters. Any brief thought 那 某事 is a sermon or blog idea goes in of my starter files. I resist the urge to ask, “这真的是个好主意吗? ”

    Then when writing 我可以 pull an idea for my starter file. If I am not sure what direction to take, I will spend time free writing about the topic. After awhile clarity usually falls into place.

  12. Love 印象笔记 ! Love brain-dumping, not afraid to be risky. Somedays 我可以 write 20 headlines others I am dry. If we write about what we are passionate about it usually flows. 好啊post 丰富.

    • What a great place to be in Malinda! 您r spot on too; other people are a great source for new ideas. Especially the ones 那 currently follow you.

      I’会不时发送电子邮件给发表评论的人,询问他们想在我的博客上看到什么…besides blowing them away 那 I just did 那, they give 一些 of the most unique ideas I’ve not thought of.

  13. 推荐阅读约翰·麦克菲’4月29日的《纽约客》专栏,“Draft No. 4.” He brings to life the terrors 和 insecurities 那 come with creating a first draft of anything —以及在后续草稿中浏览时如何变得更加容易。但是你 ’ve got to persevere 和 get through 那 first draft — even if it’s not great. “You can’除非您知道发生了什么问题,否则请进行修复。”

      • 我不能像大多数人那样经验丰富,因为思维导图对我来说是新的。
        在描述和写下概念和思想时,它们是指当前的思想,还是映射是将所有思想和概念放在一页上?

        • Generally speaking you take an idea, 和 write, draw, color or whatever else comes to mind around the idea while connecting with lines or diagrams what links together (thoughts 那 are similar).

          When done, you 应该 have what you need for a well thought out post 那 stays on topic…

  14. 这篇帖子昨天会很有帮助…昨晚深夜,我对下一篇博客有一个好主意。迪登’写下来,发现自己今天在加油站,记得我有个好主意,但不记得那是什么。是时候使用我的iPhone了。一世’我将从第1步开始。谢谢,里奇。

  15. 一切都很棒!我是的忠实粉丝“play” as inspiration for writing. My personal best 玩 habit is to do a quick ride on the mountain bike. Nothing to do but steer, pedal 和 think.

    感谢您的帖子。

  16. 好文章理查德!我想今天将#6纳入我的办公室。如果我能在墙上写字,我会变得更有创造力和生产力!您认为我的房东会介意吗?哦,我当然需要做更多的#8。

    • I used 一些 of 那 paint, but not for me, for the kids. It’s really a blast. 您可以 get a chalk board, white board 和 even paint 那 is magnetic!

      I’#8与您一起工作….

      成功的秘诀,甜蜜的女士…Rich

  17. I’一位数学专家,他总是在开始写作时遇到问题。我一直很欣赏作者的才华和书面文字。我认为这些技巧将在下次需要写时提供帮助。

    谢谢,

    史考特

  18. 在工作中,我经常会得到最好的主意。我倾向于记下我的待办事项清单上一半的句子。现在它’只需在一周结束时训练自己,即可将这些想法转换为Word文档!

    I’ve never tried the “写下任何想法” technique, but 我可以 certainly see how it would be helpful. 🙂

  19. 这里’s a freewriting trick 那 has worked for me more than once. If I just can’想不到要说些什么,我首先输入,不要停下来思考,“I can’不能写关于主题A的东西。 。 。” After doing 那 for a while, I switch to “I can’写关于主题A的文章” 和 then I add “because . . .” Often times, I find myself perfectly able to write about WHY 我可以’写关于主题A的文章, which then tends to free up solutions in my brain.

  20. 我最好的想法来自意料之外的来源。保持警惕;从您所在的位置和看到的内容中学习。它’s out there–灵感无处不在。但–as others have said–写下或记录下来!非常感谢,理查德。

  21. What works for me is reading. Non-stop reading about my niche or just random blogs will make me want to write 和 makes the process really interesting. 我可以 write best when I have read enough to be able to find words 那 will flow. One of my bad habits is trying to edit in the middle of writing. I struggle with 那. But great notes from copyblogger 那 I will keep in mind. Thanks for 那 insight.

  22. 这里有一些很棒的想法,但是本文将误导人们关于创造力的知识。发生了随机的创意见解,但是您说…

    “创新和创新是无法计划的。”

    那实际上是错误的信息。是的他们可以。它’s like saying, “becoming a good guitar 玩er cannot be planned.” As skills, 创意的 thinking 和 innovation can 和 应该 be planned. Read Thinkertoys by Michael Michalko. It’很好地介绍了什么是创造力及其运作方式。

    “儿童是地球上最有创造力的生物。”

    你真的相信吗?在儿童和成年人之间的竞争中,成年人会输掉吗?

    许多孩子比 一些 大人,因为他们避风港’t been conditioned by society, 和 imagination 玩s a key role in creativity, but 创意的 大人 are much much more 创意的 than children because their brains are more fully developed.

    I’我很惊讶在Copyblogger上看到这个。

    • 关于您的评论有很多话要说,但是我’ll leave it at this –明天下午3点,我希望您能坐下来发挥创意,而无需任何深思熟虑或工作。唐’提早开始,准时开始,并提出一个杰作。

      您是否见过大人用包装箱盖城堡?

      Children are more 创意的 because they are less inhibited. They do not have preconceived ideas about how things “should” be 那 get in the way

      Learning to 玩 the guitar is a mechanical skill, so of course it can be learned. Creativity is not a mechanical skill. 您可以 train your mind to allow more creativity to happen, but 我不’t think you can sit down at your desk with your calendar on Monday morning 和 say, “OK, from 2-3 o’clock this afternoon I’m going to be 创意的 .”

      • 您’我一定是在开玩笑。

        “坐下来并富有创意,无需任何深思熟虑或工作。”

        为什么会 任何人 如果他们在下午3点尝试这样做,是否会提出创意?什么样的神秘力量会阻止他们?

        “您是否见过大人用包装箱盖城堡?”

        不。您看过迪拜电影或蒂姆·伯顿电影吗?轶事唐’t help much.

        “Learning to 玩 the guitar is a mechanical skill, so of course it can be learned. Creativity is not a mechanical skill.”

        Creativity is a skill of the mind 那 can be learned. It is not a magical, elusive force you can’看眼睛。任何人都可以计划在下午3点坐下来,并提出许多创意来解决问题或创造新事物。

        The book Thinkertoys lists about 15 创意的 thinking techniques to help people do just 那. It’s very good.

        你也自相矛盾。自由写作和头脑风暴会议可以’有计划吗?他们不会’在下午3点产生任何创意?他们必须自发完成吗?

        哦,放轻松吧“关于您的评论有很多话要说…”because you’反对很多你不做的研究’似乎不仅是我,还很熟悉。

  23. Hello 丰富ard

    感谢您的精彩帖子。我读了第三段,并认为“Yep, 那’s me”.

    I am forever sitting down to start typing an 文章 , 和 next thing you know I browsing 您tube or Facebook.

    我发现写作时很难上手。但是,一旦我写了第一段,它就会变得更容易。

    Sometimes it 帮助 me to start an 文章 一些 where in the middle 和 go back to the first paragraph later.

  24. Oh 人 content is such a killer for me at the moment. 我可以 spend the whole day researching how to imporove copy 那 I’我们发现花相同的时间进行复印会更好。仍然…理查德一篇很好的文章!

  25. 谢谢你的帖子。我还使用自由写作来激发创造力。我还沿着绿色的街道行走,深呼吸或随着我喜欢的音乐自由跳舞。它’是舒舒服服,然后变得更有创造力的好方法。

  26. As for me, before I go writing on anything 那 I want to share, I visualize everything 那 goes into my mind 和 from 那 on I go into writing 和 try to pick up the pieces to assemble a picture 那 my reader would understood….

    很棒的帖子

  27. 多萝西·帕克(Dorothy Parker)的开场白使我陷入困境。这是作家之间的共同情感吗?一世’不愿自称作家。我拥有应用数学学位,但在此过程中确实参加了一些写作课。一世’米与多萝西·帕克(Dorothy Parker)完全在船上。但是,我确实渴望成为一名优秀的作家,甚至有一天可能会称呼自己“a writer”. But I always thought 那 since I find the writing process so painful 那 it’s probably not 某事 I 应该 pursue. I’d喜欢听到您对此的想法。

    • I always smile at Dorothy Parker quotes 因为。 。 。 well, because I find her funny/witty/clever. I enjoy most parts of the writing process (research is fun for me 和 interviewing is, too). Perhaps the most painful part for me is getting down the first draft 和 then I like moving the pieces around to see what version of an 文章 works the best 和 flows most smoothly.

    • 这只是杰里的个人看法,但这是我对您的问题的看法—讨厌写东西的人往往会写自己不喜欢的东西’不要爱或不热衷。写下您所爱的人(您是谁),而忘记您所爱的人“should” (should 应该 be a 4-letter word –是双关语)。为您而不是听众写信(我’检出了您的博客;将个人生活投入到写作中。对您来说将变得更加有趣,甚至可能具有治疗性)。对于其他人,他们将能够联系…that’只是我大声思考。

  28. <<< Jig dancing 那 I found this 文章 ! I am brand spanking new to this content writing job 和 I really needed this pep talk! In the past, just writing for my own pleasure, there was zippity-doo-da pressure. Now I have deadlines 和 have to write about things such as dentures. It is stretching my brain beyond comprehension to write a 500 word 文章 on tooth extraction which captures the audience, remains accurate 和 一些 how isn’就像话题本身一样痛苦!

  29. All work 和 no 玩 –让杰克成为一个愚蠢的男孩。
    我真的很喜欢你的观点– “Play with your dog”. Whether it is writing or doing any of your other job all the time can make you really stressed. We 应该 all take a break from work 和 do 一些 other activity to feel relaxed. It really 帮助 和 increase the productivity..

  30. 非常喜欢阅读这篇文章:听起来像我一生的故事。

    我一直是一个梦想家,一个心不在rather的人:我陷入tr的状态,是新思想和灵感的源泉。那’这就是为什么我要随时准备一个记事本和一支笔。

    您 never know when the muse will strike or run away from you, so best to be prepared.

    创造力也可以是偶然性的产物。

    威廉·华兹华斯,挚爱的天性’他的诗人写了他最著名的诗“Daffodils”当他外出时在古老的英格兰大湖区散步。

    William saw daffodils dancing in the breeze 和 the rest, as they say, is history. Only goes to show 那 fortune favors the bold 和 it is best to be prepared for any eventuality.

    感谢您在这里的贡献,并请继续写作,并希望将来能阅读您的作品。

  31. I really like the point you made about giving thanks. Not a lot of people take the time to reflect on the sheer fact 那 they can write 和 那 they have enough creativity to write. The act of reflection is vital.

  32. 换个风景有帮助–walking狗和华兹华斯的例子证明了这一点。刚离开办公室进入当地的咖啡店,甚至离开办公桌进入安静的会议室都可以提供帮助。

    我猜’s about a ‘different environment 那 帮助’.

    我最好的博客文章出于某种原因写在飞机上。我在OneNote中保留了一个想法列表,然后空中发表了所有博客文章!
