10 Ways to Help You Beat Writer’s Block

Writer's block is the notion that a writer is unable to come up with new ideas to write about. Either they've written too much and can't think of anything else to write about or they just don't even know where to start. If you suffer from writer's block, then great news! Our ten tips below will hopefully help you unblock yourself and get writing again! Is writer's block real? Many would argue that it is.

The Flesch-Kincaid Readability Test

One of the most important things that writing teachers emphasize to their students is for the students to "know their audience." True enough. It wouldn't make sense to use college-level writing to write a high school textbook, and it would be unthinkable to write a doctorate-level dissertation using third-grade language. In order to effectively get the message across, it is important for the writer to learn how to adjust the readability level of what they write. Unknown to many, there is a formula to determine a text's readability: the Flesch–Kincaid Readability Test. Exploring the Roots of the Flesch-Kincaid Readability Test Before the Flesch-Kincaid Readability Test was developed, there was the Flesch Reading Ease formula.  Now considered the grandfather of all readability formulas, it was developed in 1948 by Rudolph Flesch, an Austrian author and writing consultant. His body of work reflected his belief that phonics should be the underlying basis of...

To help you pick the right pen to use, we have curated ten of the best pens for writing which you could find on the market. We have pointed out their unique characteristics. This way, you will...
