Tuesday Tip - Exercise Alliteration to Fight Writer's Block

Welcome to Tuesday Tips - a weekly blog post for busy writers!

Today we are talking about one exercise that can be helpful in fighting writer's block (yes, its a thing) while expanding your writing skills.

How can the author beat the block with alliteration?

First – We've all been there. Writing needs to happen, but the inspiration to begin doesn't seem to be present. Try using this one trick. Pick a letter - any letter. Perhaps begin with A and work through the alphabet if you must.

Second – Choose a subject that begins with that letter. I chose "Alliteration."

Third – Write a description or poetic passage using as many repetitive sounds as possible. "An artistic arrangement of adverbs, adjectives, and afterthoughts appropriately advancing acceptance of acrobatic alphabet activity. Alright?"

Fourth - When you feel you have taxed your brain enough, stretch a little more. See if you can come up with 2-3 more words to fit into this bit of writing.

Lastly - Share what you have written with others via social media or in person. As they take up the challenge and respond, you may gain even more insights and expressions for future use. At the least, you will have written something and perhaps the act of doing will get you moving forward in other ways.
