Solve a Problem (Writing Quick Tip)

Looking for copy for your blog or someone else’s but are short of ideas? Want to pitch an article to a periodical but you don’t know what about? Not sure what your next book should be about?

Then solve a problem.

Start with the  topic you’re writing about, whether your genre or the subject of the folks you’re hiring out to. Think about what kinds of problems are important in that area.

Then come up with one or more ways to solve that problem. Write them up so they’re easy to read and easy to put into action. Lists in particular spell things out for your readers and give them options to chose from (since no one solution fits everybody)

When your mind is blank, remember to solve a problem. Not only do you help your reader solve his problem, but you also solve the problem about what to write about
